<b>Monday 28 July:</b> Barton released, sainthood for Manchester nun and emergency landing for troubled plane

Published on July 28th 2008.

JOEY BARTON has been released from prison after serving two months of a six month sentence for assault. The 25-year-old former City player was captured on CCTV in Liverpool last December punching a man. Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan said on Sunday that the footballer still had a future with the club.

A MANCHESTER NUN could be next in-line for sainthood. Sister Elizabeth Prout worked with Manchester's poor in the 19th century, opening schools and helping people in slums from her base at St Chad's church, Cheetham Hill. If the sainthood goes ahead, she will become the first female British saint for 40 years.

TWO WOMEN caused a plane to make an emergency landing on a flight to Manchester after they tried to open the cabin door mid-flight. The women were reportedly drinking on board a flight from Kos in Greece to Manchester on Wednesday afternoon before the incident which also included one of the women attacking a flight attendant with a bottle of vodka. The plane made an emergency landing and the women were later arrested.

LOUIS SAHA is to be sold to Paris St Germain according to the Daily Mirror. The report suggests that the French striker, 29, is interested in going home if a fee can be agreed. The paper said: 'Sir Alex Ferguson has grown fed up with Saha's inability to be a significant part of his squad and the money from shifting him could help in his bid for a fit goalscorer.'
