TWO teenagers have appeared in court over the alleged murder of youngster in Bolton.

Emergency services were called to Walker Avenue, Great Lever, in the early hours of the morning after reports of a stabbing.

They took 15-year-old Reece Tansey to hospital but he died a short time later.

Following this two teenagers, aged 14 and 15, both from Bolton, appeared at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court charged with his murder.

The pair, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were remanded in custody.

Their case was too serious to be dealt with by magistrates and they will appear again at Manchester Crown Court on Monday.
