First published in News

A man has admitted the manslaughter of his six-week-old son.

Mohammed Ismail Malik died in hospital last January after paramedics were called to his family home in Bolton.

The youngster was taken to the Royal Bolton Hospital and later transferred to Liverpool's Alder Hey Hospital where he died.

Ahead of his scheduled murder trial, Shakeel Hussain, 25, pleaded guilty at Manchester Crown Court to unlawfully killing his son.

The defendant, formerly of Balcary Grove, Heaton, was remanded in custody for the preparation of a psychological report for sentencing on February 28.

A charge of causing or allowing the death of a child against the boy's mother, Rabeel Malik, 23, was dismissed at an earlier hearing.
