A second man has been charged in connection with the death of Warren Burns in south Manchester.

Mr Burns, 37, sadly passed away in hospital following an incident on Sunday 21 May 2023 at an address on Heysham Avenue in Fallowfield.

Damian White (28/11/89), of Woodham Road, Northern Moor, has today (27/5/23) been charged with murder and remanded into custody to appear at court this afternoon.

Brandon White (21/09/2002) of Radstock Close, Fallowfield, has previously been charged with attempted murder and will appear in court in due course.

A third male and a woman arrested in connection with the murder of Mr Burns remain in custody for questioning.

This week, Mr Burns’ family paid their own tribute: “Warren was a much-loved son, brother, partner and father, which he absolutely loved.

“He was a larger-than-life character with a gentle soul, and he was often referred to as a gentle giant.

“He was very fun loving, and livened up any event he attended. Life will not be the same without him.

“It’s heart-breaking that he will never see his children grow up and experience all that life has to offer – he was simply was the best, a true legend and he will be greatly missed.”
