A woman cried as she appeared in court charged with the murder of a man who was hit by a moving tram.

Charrissa Loren Brown-Wellington, 31, wore a red jumper and grey tracksuit bottoms as she appeared at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court on Tuesday morning charged with the murder of Philip Carter.

Mr Carter, who has not been formally named by police but was named in court, died after being hit by a tram at Victoria station in Manchester on Sunday.

Emergency services attended at about 7.50pm but the 30-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.

Greater Manchester Police said he was pushed from the platform in front of a moving tram.

Brown-Wellington, who has long brown hair and was in tears in the dock, was remanded in custody to appear at Manchester Crown Court on Wednesday.
