<b>Friday 23 May:</b> Tories take Crewe, officers take illegal workers and Fergie takes a moment to reflect

Published on May 23rd 2008.

THE CONSERVATIVES have won over Crewe in the Crewe and Nantwich by-election according to reports. Leader David Cameron told the BBC that overturning Labour's 7,000 majority "can be the start of something different and something bigger". New Conservative MP Edward Timpson said the message that the government needs to change is loud and clear from voters.

IMMIGRATION OFFICERS have found three men working illegally at a garage in Old Trafford. The UK Border Agency found the men at Auto Technik on Upper Chorlton Road. Two men were arrested, the first for entering the country illegally and the second breaching terms of visit by working. A 19-year-old is also facing removal from the country. The firm is facing fines of up to £10,000 for each man.

TEACHERS are threatening strike action once again. The National Union of Teachers has said it may plan further strike action in autumn in protest at Government pay cuts. Last month's strike affected around 2.9m pupils with up to 5000 schools closed in England and Wales.

SIR ALEX FERGUSON has praised his newly-crowned European Champions. He said: “ I think this has got the makings of our best ever team. This is an amazing achievement, it’s fantastic. As a club, we started the sojourn into Europe in 1955. We deserve to get this trophy now. I think there was a sense of fate about it. It was my first penalty shoot out win in a big game. I’m very proud of my team.”
