Manchester 250: 18 June 2007

Gun victim named, Beckham virtually attends big day and City to Thai up deal

Published on June 18th 2007.

A MAN killed in a drive-by shooting in Manchester city centre has been named by police. Ucal Chin, 24, from Chorlton-on-Medlock was taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary after being shot in his car along Anson Road on Friday evening. Officers are continuing to appeal for information regarding the whereabouts of a light-coloured, possibly silver, saloon car which police believe carried the attackers.

GARY NEVILLE married Emma Hadfield this weekend in a ceremony at Manchester Cathedral, the photos of which the couple chose not to sell to a magazine. Guests included Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney and Coleen McLoughlin. The Beckhams didn’t attend, however David, made an appearance at the reception via video link. A police helicopter circled the Cathedral on the big day.

SONY has apologised to Manchester Cathedral for using its interior in their computer game without permission. The Dean received a letter on Friday saying, ‘It was not our intention to cause offence. If we have done so, we apologise.’ Reverend Govender, said: “We thank Sony for the apology they have made. However, we do not move from the position that we are against violence.” It remains to be seen if the game will be taken off shelves.

CITY are optimistic about their Thai take-over once again, following news that there will be a £120m offer by the end of the week. An official bid is expected to be made for the club by the ex-Thai prime minister, Thaksin Shinawatra, despite having £830m of his assets frozen last week.
