Manchester 250: 27 July 2007

Missing girls, elite athletes and litigious Argentines

Published on July 27th 2007.


GABRIEL HEINZE is doing a West Ham and Carlos Tevez. In a move similar to the legal proceedings involving the latter Argentine and Manchester United, the former Argentine might take United to court in a bid to force a £7m move to Liverpool. The legal move kills off hopes that Heinze might remain at United.

THE TRANSPORT Innovation Fund, aka Congestion Charging, is set to be approved by Greater Manchester Councils this afternoon. Despite late attempts to block the bid eight of the ten local authorities look likely to vote to go ahead. Only Trafford and Stockport are currently against the proposal which needs a simple majority to proceed and may result in £3bn of investment in the regional transport network.

POLICE are getting increasingly worried over the disappearance of two schoolgirls from Greater Manchester. Patience Mlambo and Jade Williams, both aged 14 and from Salford, have never been missing before. Police are appealing for anyone with information about their whereabouts to contact them. Ch Insp Sean Hogan, Operations Manager at Salford, said: "Their families are besides themselves with worry and can't understand why they have disappeared like this.”

SALFORD is preparing for its biggest annual event this Sunday when athletes from more than 30 countries gather in the city for the Triathlon World Cup. Prize money of £100,000 is up for grabs in the races which start at 7am for elite women and 11.30am for men. More than 22,000 spectators are expected at the event centre on Salford Quays.
