COPS investigating the death of a grandad who is thought to have been run over by his own car have charged a man with murder.

But he was tragically pronounced dead at the scene despite the best efforts of emergency services.

Marvin Sutton, 35, of no fixed abode has now been charged with murder.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed that he had been remanded into custody ahead of an appearance at Tameside Magistrates on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, a 43-year-old man remains on bail on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Hanley died after apparently being hit by his own Range Rover while trying to stop it from being stolen, the force said.

Chris’s family paid tribute to him yesterday: “As a family we are heartbroken and shocked at the sudden loss of Chris.

“A loved and devoted family man who adored his grandchildren, tragically and unfairly, taken way too soon.

“At this time, we as a family ask for privacy to show respect for Chris and his memory.”

Anyone with further information that may help with enquiries are asked to call 101 quoting incident 1172 of 16/03/2024.
