<b>Tuesday 14 October:</b> PIN guessing game over, cannabis upgraded and bus crash in Old Trafford

Published on October 14th 2008.

A BANK CARD THIEF who went to the same cash point over 50 times to try and guess the PIN numbers of cards he'd stolen has been jailed. Trevor Agnew, 44, thought if he kept trying the same machine he may guess the numbers, despite the odds being one in 10,000. After several attempts, the cash machine on Stockport Road, Timperley, was then filmed by police. Agnew has now been jailed for three years and four months.

A BUS has collided with a building in Old Trafford. Motorists are advised to avoid the junction of Upper Chorlton Road and Kings Road following the accident.
