<b>Friday 15 August:</b> Versace comes to Eccles, biggest food hygiene fine in Manchester and drunken pilots arrested

Published on August 15th 2008.


A STOWAWAY CAT has survived a five-day journey from Italy to Greater Manchester. Versace the cat was found in a crate which was delivered to a company in Eccles. He has now been quarantined for six months due to the fact that he arrived in the country via Switzerland and France without a pet passport. He will be re-homed here, once his quarantine is over.

SHAHENSHAH curry house on Wilmslow Road, Rusholme, has been fined £31,000 for food hygiene offences. A health officer found infestations of mice and oriental cockroach as well as filthy conditions in the kitchen and food storage areas in April of this year. The fine is one of the biggest that has ever been given to a restaurant in Greater Manchester.

A PAIR of Russian pilots have been arrested at Manchester Airport today on suspicion of being drunk. The pilots were about to fly a Boeing 767 to Moscow when they were arrested. Security officers claim the pair were couldn't stand up properly as they waited to board the plane. The breathalyser reportedly confirmed that they were well above the legal limit for flying.

A recent survey has revealed that Mancunians admittedly enjoy drunken calls and don't mind being woken up to flirty late night text messages. Around 105 million text messages were sent and 45 million calls made last year by people while drunk in the UK.

I feel sick after reading the cockroach/mice story.... surely if one of them places is that skanky a few more are also. The curry mile is a cockroach/rat/pigeons wet dream!! If you want a good curry get to Akbars or Eastzeast....

I always find the oriental variant of cockroach to be the most troublesome. Shahen Shah however should count themselves lucky that they didn't have to deal with an infestation of tunnel rats though.
