<b>Thursday 24 April:</b> Exploding car, rice set to rise and Logan back with City

Published on April 24th 2008.

A CAR exploded in Fallowfield last night after it was set alight. The blast had blown the doors off a Vauxhall Vectra spreading debris over 30 square metres. Fire fighters extinguished the flames and the scene has been preserved for more detailed forensic examination. Two people were seen running away from the scene towards Wilbraham Road shortly before the car blew up.

CHINESE restaurants in Greater Manchester may have to increase menu prices due to rising food costs. Several Chinese restaurants have commented on the rising costs of cooking oil and rice. Gerry Yeung, owner of Manchester's Yang Sing restaurant told Crain's Manchester Business: “The price of rice is up by about 50 per cent since last November and has probably doubled in the past year. It is going to have an impact.”

OVER 400 schools in Greater Manchester have closed today as part of a national strike. Teachers are protesting outside Manchester town hall today as part of the National Union of Teachers industrial action. The strike is the result of a 2.45% pay offer from the Government. Staff rejected the offer, arguing that it was well below consumer inflation.

SHALEUM LOGAN is set to return to Manchester City after a loan spell at Stockport County. Shaleum has helped County rise up to fifth in the table during his seven appearances for the club. But with Micah Richards, Nedum Onuoha and Javi Garrido all out of Saturday's final home game, Logan could come straight into the first team squad.
