City news in 250 words: Friday 5 November

BEZ IS WANTED: Ex-Happy Mondays dancer Bez is being sought by police over allegations he violated a restraining order involving his former girlfriend. Bez was jailed for four weeks in August for attacking Monica Ward and told he must not contact her for two years. Greater Manchester Police are trying to track him down.

CONFUSED DRIVER: A man who left his home near Bolton to travel to Rhyl for a holiday, ended up driving on the wrong side of the A55, a court has heard. John Marsden, 86, drove approximately six-and-a-half miles the wrong way on the main dual carriageway, 14 hours after setting off on the 70 mile trip. He received a one year ban and £35 fine.

TAXI ASSAULTS: Two women were sexually assaulted by a taxi driver and some of his passengers in Manchester last Saturday. The 18-year-old and 23-year-old were walking along Great Ancoats Street after a night out, when a minibus pulled up and the driver offered to take them home. Unbeknown to the women, there were 14 men in the vehicle. The women were sexually assaulted but escaped while the minibus was moving.

MANFORD IN THE DOGHOUSE: Comedian Jason Manford has apologised after it emerged he exchanged flirty Twitter messages with a female fan. Debra McNamee told the Sun how the married father-of-two got excited over pictures of her in underwear. Manford said: “I’d like to apologise to anyone that this has offended as that was the last thing I ever intended to do.”

Out of the window weather forecast: Going to a bonfire tonight? Pack a mac.
