A MAN has appeared in court charged with kidnap following an incident in Orrell.

Mojeed Animashaun, 49, of Petworth Road, Chadderton, appeared at Wigan Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

At about 12.30am on Saturday, police were called to Orrell Road, following reports a 31-year-old woman had been approached by a man in a car outside the Fishergate pub, and then physically dragged into the vehicle.

The terrified woman managed to escape at traffic lights on Gathurst Road.

Animashaun was committed to Liverpool Crown Court for trial and is due to appear there on December 13.
