<b>Friday 9 May:</b> Three thick thugs, three dumb mums and three rotten raiders

Published on May 9th 2008.

THREE GANG MEMBERS have suffered defeat after walking into a crowded gym armed with guns without realising police were giving a talk on gun crime in the room next door. Police officers called in an armed response unit after they realised the Gooch Close gang members had targeted Moss Side Leisure Centre. Two men were jailed for possesion of firearms, intent to endanger life and assault at Manchester Crown Court. Police have said this is a significant victory over a gang that has terrorised South Manchester for the past two decades.

THREE MOTHERS from Manchester have been caught trying to smuggle £340,000 worth of cocaine into the country in their underwear. Collette Williams, 38, Natalie Phillips, 28, both from Chorlton and Cherie McClarnan, 21, from Wythenshawe, were caught at Gatwick Airport. All three women have bee sentenced to five and a half years in prison.

THREE ROBBERS raided Blockbuster on Lapwing Lane, West Didsbury on Sunday. The men got away with cash, games, games consoles and credit vouchers. They threatened to stab the manager of the store before bundling him into the back room. So far a 21-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of robbery but has since been bailed.

WAYNE ROONEY could be on the bench for United's title decider at Wigan on Sunday due to an injury. Sir Alex Ferguson said: “He may be on the bench. He'll certainly be fit for the Champions League final.” The decision will be made over the next 48 hours.
