City news in 250 words: Wednesday 9 February

GMP OFFICE SHARING: GMP Chief Constable Peter Fahy has suggested that staff should move out of their offices and start sharing with council workers. The proposed move could allow for stronger relationships between police and social workers in the hope that this would help to tackle “chaotic” families. The plans would see GMP saving money at a time when cuts are at the forefront for public sector organisation.

CAB BABY CALL ‘A HOAX’: Police believe a call from a woman claiming to have left a two-week-old baby outside the Citizen’s Advice Bureau in Bury last Thursday was not genuine. After receiving the 999 call from the woman, who had an African accent, officers searched the area and all CAB branches across Greater Manchester to no avail. Police are keen to hear from anyone with information about this incident.

CHESHIRE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE STATISTICS: Cheshire Police have released statistics showing that one in five victims of domestic violence in the county is male. The figures come as the police launch a new campaign urging male victims to step forward and report domestic abuse, especially with Valentine’s Day approaching.

FORMER GMP CONSTABLE JAILED: Michael Fletcher, 31, of Bacup, has pleaded guilty to two counts of two accounts of misconduct in a public office after having sex with a vulnerable woman while on duty. He has been sentenced to 32 months in prison following the sentencing at Minshull Street Crown Court. Fletcher resigned from the Force five days after his arrest in July 2010.

Out of the window weather forecast: Don’t go anywhere without an umbrella. The sky is looking eager to ruin everyone’s day.
