City News in 250 words: Wednesday 31 March

A TEENAGER HAS BEEN FOUND GUILTY of the murder of a 16-year-old boy in Stretford. Giuseppe Gregory was shot at outside the Robin Hood pub on May 10 last year. He suffered fatal head injuries after bullets shattered the rear window of the car he was in. Njabulo Ndlovu, 19, from Newton Heath, was found guilty after a month-long trial at Manchester Crown Court.

A FATHER HAS BEEN JAILED FOR LIFE after strangling his two children to death to punish his wife. Petros Williams killed Yolanda Molemohi, four, and two-year-old Theo Molemohi at his flat in Whalley Range, last October. He also made a farewell video which featured him urging the children to say goodbye to their mother. He will serve a minimum of 28 years in prison.

TEACHERS ARE BEING BULLIED by pupils online, according to the Association of Teachers and Lecturers. One in seven teachers say a colleague has faced abuse on social networking sites such as Facebook, from a student or parent. Delegates at ATL's annual conference in Manchester passed a resolution calling for the union to develop a policy and issue advice to members on dealing with social networking sites.

A TIME CAPSULE has been found at a primary school in Leigh. The bottle and note, written by the original builders, date back to the early 20th Century. It was discovered by builders demolishing the original Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School. The handwritten note reads: ‘This grate was put up by James Riding and H Williams.’
