<b>Thursday 10 July:</b> Attack on Oxford Road, Corrie creator honoured and Ronaldo is a slave to the game

Published on July 10th 2008.

A SEXUAL ATTACK took place on Oxford Road earlier this week. A teenager was dragged into a car as she left the Hit and Run bar on Oxford Road on Tuesday. She was driven around and sexually assaulted by two men before being dropped off half-an-hour later near to where she was snatched. The men are all described as Asian and in their 30s or 40s and one had a mole under his right eye.

CORONATION CREATOR, Tony Warren was honoured yesterday by Manchester Metropolitan University. Warren, 72, received an Honorary Doctorate of Letters in recognition of his contribution to ground-breaking television and creative writing which has helped put Manchester and Salford on the cultural map.

MANCHESTER CITY COUNCIL is to replace bottled water with tap water in all its buildings. The changeover will save the council £93,000 a year and is part of the Tap into Water campaign, launched by United Utilities. It is estimated that in the UK we buy three billion bottles of water each year.

FIFA PRESIDENT, Sepp Blatter, has accused Manchester United of treating Cristiano Ronaldo like a modern day slave and believes they should let him go. He told Sky News: “If the player wants to play somewhere else, then a solution should be found. I'm always in favour to protect the player and if the player wants to leave, let him leave. I think in football there is too much modern slavery, transferring players or buying players here and there.”

Strange that UU are trying to persuade people to abandon bottled water in favour of their own tap variety whilst all the while claiming that it is more environmentally sound.

Modern Slavery? Getting paid VASt amounts of money to do something they enjoy and have all the perks and luxeries that go with it. Must be a hard life being a premiership footballer
