A man has been charged with stealing flowers from the memorial of a teenage lorry crash victim.

Jack Essex, 18, died after being knocked down by a lorry in Manchester city centre on January 28.

The Devastated friends and family left dozens of floral tributes a site near to the collision, the Manchester Evening News reports.

But in the early hours of Saturday, February 7, a man was seen on CCTV selecting bunches of flowers and removing them from the scene.

The footage was issued by police in a bid to catch the offender.

Hantouli Raid, 37, from Manchester, has now been charged with theft and will appear before magistrates.

Inspector Phil Spurgeon said: “The public response to our appeal was overwhelming and following information we received, officers were able to arrest a man who has now been charged with an offence of theft.

“As this matter will now be subject to court proceedings, Greater Manchester Police is unable to comment further, but I would like to thank everyone who came forward to us with information.”
