<b>Tuesday 16 June:</b> Zombies in town, millionaire pensioner and pollution in Walkden

Published on June 16th 2009.

DON'T BE ALARMED if you see zombies on the city centre streets on Sunday 12 July. It's part of a charity challenge to break an official Guinness World Record. 1,600 plus zombies will begin their walk at The Printworks. The event is to be filmed and could end up being used in an American zombie movie. Profits will be donated to charities including Cancer Research, Children in Need, and Christies.

A PENSIONER FROM BOLTON has become England's biggest ever lottery winner. Brian Caswell, 73, and his wife Joan were the joint winners of the Euromillions jackpot on Friday and are due to discuss their massive win at a press conference later in Macclesfield. The couple are one of two lucky winners to take a half share Friday night's £50m jackpot.

GORSE PITT RESERVOIR, IN WALKDEN has been polluted after diesel and chemicals from a fire at a garage were spread by floods. Birds and other wildlife have been found dead following the fire at the VRS vehicle depot. The chemicals spread into a nearby stream which flows to the reservoir. Police are treating the blaze as arson.

CRISTIANO RONALDO will not face any charges over a road smash earlier this year in which he crashed his brand new Ferrari into the side of a road tunnel. Ronaldo was initially the subject of a careless driving investigation but police have now said he simply lost control of the car and it would be inappropriate to prosecute him for any driving offence.

It was inevitable Ronaldo would follow Kaka to Real Madrid. An irritating c**t always follows a Brazilian.
