Twin brothers were charged today with the murder of a father-of-two who was gunned down as he opened his front door.

Brett Francis and Jordan Francis are accused of killing Amran Khan at his home in Oldham, Greater Manchester.

Mr Khan, 29, was shot three times as he went to investigate a disturbance outside his house in Nugget Street on the evening of September 19.

He died at the Royal Oldham Hospital, leaving a wife and two daughters, aged one and four.

The Francis brothers, aged 26, of Birch Avenue, Oldham, will appear before magistrates in the town later today.
