A group of eight accused of violence in Wigan town centre will appear at crown court next month.

All have been charged with violent disorder following an incident on July 30 last year.

Brett Burgess of Woodcock House, Mark Burgess of Montrose Avenue, Jamie Dean, of Ruskin Avenue, Kevin Lindley of Douglas House, Matthew Littler of Baker Street, Liam Mawdesley of Heeley Street, all in Wigan, along with Kieran Lee Gale of no fixed abode and Steven Dunkin of Evington, Skelmersdale, will appear at Bolton Crown Court on April 19.

The group did not enter pleas at Wigan and Leigh Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

They were granted bail on the condition they do not contact each other or the alleged victim apart from the Burgess brothers who are allowed to converse with one another, magistrates said.
