<b>Wednesday 20 February:</b> Printworks assault, Boddington’s make-over and Trafford Centre España

Published on February 20th 2008.

SEVEN MEN have been arrested after an assault near the Printworks. Two men were chased from the Printworks onto Corporation Street by a group of men in the early hours of Tuesday morning. They were then punched and kicked and stamped on while they were lying on the floor. The seven men, aged between 19 and 26-years-old, remain in police custody for questioning.

BODDINGTON’S BREWERY is to be transformed into a development of offices, hotels, shops and a micro-brewery. The £250 million scheme will also provide 480 new homes, a college and a series of low-rise mixed-use blocks. Architects are starting on the first phase of the transformation which will see the former Boddington’s brewery turned into a 20-storey tower and public square.

THE TRAFFORD CENTRE is to get a sister centre in Spain. Property giants Peel Holdings are taking the concept to the Costa del Sol to create Trafford Centre España. Following years of negotiations and proposals with the Spanish authorities, the scheme has been given the go ahead. The replica mall will take two years to build and is due to start in 2009.

DARIUS VASSELL has praised fellow team mate Benjani for boosting the squad. He told mcfc.co.uk: “It was tough for him – upfront on your own against United away – it doesn’t get much tougher but he’s a great player and he’ll be a great acquisition for the team and hopefully he’ll score loads of goals for us. It was a great boost. Sometimes you need that.”
