ALDERLEY EDGE BYPASS OPENS, 90 YEARS LATER: An idea which was thought up 90 years ago has finally been made a reality. The long-awaited Alderley Edge Bypass cost £52m and is designed to take about 26,000 vehicles a day away from Alderley Edge and Nether Alderley. It was scheduled to open in summer 2011 but has been completed well-ahead of schedule, despite being initially thought up in the 1920s.

TAGGED MAN A LONG TIME DEAD: A man wearing an electronic tag could have been dead for three weeks before his body was found, an inquest has heard. Robert Little, 25, was wearing an ankle tag when he was found dead at his home in Mowbray Street, Ashton-Under-Lyne, earlier this year. Stockport Coroner John Pollard said he would be writing to the Ministry of Justice recommending a more pro-active system of monitoring offenders wearing tags.

The man from London is due to appear at Manchester City Magistrates' Court later.
