City news in 250 words: Monday 7 June

Glazer’s deeper in debt than thought, lad dies in fall and maybe no to 19k for Sir H?

City news in 250 words: Monday 7 June

A BBC PANORAMA investigation will reveal tonight that Manchester United's owners, the Glazer’s, are ‘£1.1bn in debt - £400m more than previously known - after borrowing extensively against their shopping mall business’. Banks have put 28 of their 64 shopping centres on a watch list, because they are concerned about the loans. Four shopping centres have already gone bankrupt.

A SCHEME TO CHALLENGE the unruly youngsters and offer them support is being rolled out across Manchester today. The scheme, which has been operating in north Manchester and Wythenshawe since April 2008, is now up and running throughout the whole of the city. Under the scheme, officers work closely with the neighbourhood policing team and the local community to identify youngsters who may be involved in, or at risk of becoming involved in, anti social behaviour.

A 17-YEAR-OLD lad has died after falling from a flat during a party in Stockport. The boy fell from the top floor of Textilis House, off Wellington Street, in the town centre 50ft to his death. Greater Manchester Police (GMP) interviewed witnesses at the party but said that his death is not being treated as suspicious.

Maybe the Glazer's could sell off the gold bit

AFTER THE ELECTION FARCE, Sir Howard Bernstein may not take a £19,000 payment due as returning officer for the 6 May poll – according to the MEN. An investigation is examining why several hundred people weren’t able to vote because of late evening rush. Sir Howard will await for the result of the investigation before deciding to take the £19,000.

Out of the window weather forecast: Grey with a cold hint of dining inside rather than on the terrace to day

If you were like me last night screaming at the television for showing the wrong Panorama programme, you will be pleased to note that the Glazer investigation is being shown tonight (Tuesday night)

What does Sir Howard do for the £19k?

AgricolaJune 9th 2010.

He knits the souls of those who don't vote into hair shirts to wear by labour voters.

Well worth it then.
