<b>Monday 9 February:</b> Dangerous, radioactive, connected and tinted: Manchester as the week starts

Published on February 9th 2009.

WANTED MAN GEORGE APPLETON is dangerous according to Greater Manchester Police and must not be approached.

In a modern twist police want women who contacted him through dating and social networking websites to come forward.

ONE OF THE BIG COMPLAINTS about the way Wythenshawe functions concerns the infrastructure. Plans for a new multi-million pound bus station in Wythenshawe to be completed in 2011 have moved a step closer following a decision to approve £200,000 of spending for initial designs for the station. Councillor Andrew Fender, said: “Our plan is to vastly improve the public transport in and out of the town centre, with first class bus and tram facilities."

CARLOS TEVEZ CAR WAS IN THE DARK a little too much according to police. They stopped him while driving because certain windows on the vehicle were illegally tinted. They then found that the United soccer star did not have a full UK driving licence. His £140,000 Bentley was seized and later removed under the Road Traffic Act 1988.

RUTHERFORD’S LABORATORY in Coupland Street at the University of Manchester has been closed due to a radiation scare. In 1919 Nobel prize-winner Ernest Rutherford split the atom here.
