Kidnap hunt goes to Spain, Tardis loos snubbed, Midland in Legos and twins confess to drive-by shooting

Published on March 17th 2010.

HUNT FOR OLDHAM BOY KIDNAPPERS GOES TO SPAIN: After Sahil Saeed was found in Pakistan yesterday, it's understood that his mother's family had raised a substantial sum to pay the ransom in a European country outside Pakistan. It is suspected that the boy's parents rowed immediately before his kidnapping, and Pakistan authorities have suggested that the kidnap is an inside job. Calls were made from Spain to his father and a GMP representative says that “a fast-moving international inquiry” is under way.

LITTLE INTEREST IN TARDIS LOOS: £17,000 was spent to install pay-per-use toilets in Wilmslow and Macclesfield, but only 637 people paid a visit between August 2008 and July 2009, putting the average cost per visit to the taxpayer at £26.84. Cheshire East Council has decided to close the facilities to cut costs.

MIDLAND HOTEL, BLACKPOOL TOWER AND MANCHESTER CATHEDRAL GETS THE LEGO TREATMENT: These popular landmarks, commissioned by the MEN will feature at a display in the Trafford Centre's £7.5m Legoland Discovery Centre, which is due to open on 22 March.

TWIN CONFESS TO DRIVE-BY SHOOTING AFTER SUICIDE ATTEMPTS: Brett and Jordan Francis, 26, of Chadderton killed Amran Khan over £12,000 worth of drug money. After denying the murder, the twins are believed to have gone to Runcorn , taken an overdose, slashed their wrists, and jumped into the River Mersey in a bid to take their own lives. Jordan confessed to an ambulance woman who arrived at the scene, whilst Brett is understood to have drowned.
