ROONEY SUPPOSED TO BE THE ANTITHESIS OF BECKHAM, Manchester Mercantile Court was told. Wayne, then 17, was given "brand values" by his agent, Paul Stretford, and sports management firm Proactive to play up his working class credentials and brand him as “earthy, real and not manufactured like DB." The footballer, his mother, father and wife are scheduled to give evidence today.

3,000 STUDENTS TOOK PART IN WORLD’S LARGEST PUB-CRAWL on Tuesday that stretched from Fallowfield to Deansgate Locks. The two-mile bar crawl included 13 venues with the 3,000 revellers having to queue to get into each venue. The group was so big they had to be divided into three separate 'waves' with each arriving and departing an hour after the other, and in-case they got lost, all participants sported a blue T-shirt with the intended list of venues and departure times.

CHIEF INSPECTOR VISITS THE TRAFFORD CENTRE TO RECRUIT SHOPPERS as special constables. Officers from North West’s constabularies were in Central Peel Dome to chat to people interested in becoming specials. GMP Chief Constable Peter Fahy said, “Special constables provide us with a fantastic extra police resource to reassure communities and keep local streets safe.”

Engineers say the sound is being caused by high winds hitting the thin glass ‘blade’ on the top of the tower.
