Greater Manchester police said this morning that the incident occurred when the woman was sitting at a bus stop on Cromwell Road at around 5:45pm on Saturday.

A statement said the woman was approached and attacked by three teenagers who stole her handbag.

"As a result of the attack the woman has lost her baby," police said.

A 17-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has since been charged with robbery.

He is due to appear at Manchester and Salford magistrates' court today.

The BBC said it was understood the woman, 43, had been around six weeks pregnant.
