<b>Wednesday 13 February:</b> Newlove killer to appeal, climate concerns and Wembley haggle for Hatton

Published on February 13th 2008.

JAILED teenager, Adam Swellings, who was sentenced to a minimum of 17 years for kicking father-of-three Garry Newlove to death, is set to appeal over his sentence and conviction. Swellings, 19, from Crewe, was the ringleader of three youths who murdered Mr Newlove, 47, outside his Warrington home. Swellings had been released from custody for an assault just hours before the attack.

The DEPARTMENT of Health has predicted that a serious heatwave caused by climate change in 2012 could cause thousands of heat related deaths. Manchester reached temperatures of 15C/60F yesterday, raising concerns about global warming. The unseasonal weather has caused certain spring flowers to open prematurely and indicate the possible impact of climate change.

MANCHESTER WOMEN would rather have a night out with their friends than go on a date on Valentines day, according to reports. Manchester social networking site CitySocialising found that 52% of women in the city would prefer to be out with the girls than a love interest. Furthermore, 60% of Mancunian men said that the most romantic day in the calendar was of no interest to them whatsoever.

WEMBLEY STADIUM has put forward a bid to host Ricky Hatton’s next fight in May. The national stadium is up against Hatton’s home ground, the City of Manchester Stadium, Eastlands. Wembley is able to accommodate 20,000 more fans. However, Hatton reportedly has his heart set on fighting in Manchester to reward fans who travelled to see his defeat against Floyd Mayweather in the US earlier this year.
