City news in 250 words: Monday 1 February
POLICE SAY FILM ‘SHOWS CHILDREN BEING RADICALISED’ after they are seen being encouraged to hold guns. The Counter Terrorist Unit raided a house in Manchester and seized the film and a leaflet that stated, “No child is ever too young to be started off on Jihad training”. The footage, which police believe was filmed in Pakistan, was uncovered on the hard drive of a computer during a raid carried out under the Terrorism Act 2000.

HOSPITAL’S A&E CLOSED AFTER A FIRE yesterday afternoon. The fire started in the service ducts which supply Trafford General Hospital with oxygen. Although quickly contained, some seriously ill patients were moved to nearby hospitals, and the A&E department was closed, and remains so, to all major injuries. A spokeswoman said, “No staff, patients or visitors were injured and nobody was ever at any risk.”

COP JAILED FOR BEING A WEDDING REGISTRAR. Bolton-based Mohammed Sadiq Patel, 49, spent up to 40 hours a week marrying couples while pretending to be on duty or after ringing in sick. Manchester Crown Court heard how the father-of-two, who pleaded guilty to seven counts of misconduct, fiddled more than £6,000 in shift payments from GMP while marrying up to three couples a day over five years.

ROONEYS TO APPEAR IN COURT after being sued for £4m by their former management company for loss of earnings. Wayne and Coleen left James Grant Group when their agent, Paul Stretford, left the company and took his two star clients with him in 2008.
