Two men have been charged with conspiracy to commit murder after a live hand grenade was found outside Kenny Dalglish's home.

Bomb disposal experts removed it from the football legend's garden wall in Southport, Merseyside, on Sunday night.

Simon Lewis Ignacio, 28, of Lee Park Avenue, Belle Vale, and Carl Higgins, 29, of Helston Green, were remanded in custody by South Sefton magistrates.

They are due to appear at Liverpool Crown Court on 6 August.

A police spokesman said the discovery of the hand grenade was not connected to Mr Dalglish.

He has recently returned to work at Anfield to take up a senior role at Liverpool's football academy.

Nobody was injured in the incident and it is not known if anybody was at the Dalglish home at the time.
