He has been remanded in a secure mental health hospital where he remains under treatment.

Mr Hughes is due to appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates court on June 6.

Detective inspector Danny Lee said: “We understand this tragedy may have increased the community concerns in relation to knife crime, but we would like to stress this is a very rare type of incident. However, at the heart of this incident a loved one has been torn away and our thoughts remain with Michelle’s family, whom we continue to support with specialist officers.”
