Manchester 250: 3 September 2007

No feet on seats and lets all move to Salford

Published on September 3rd 2007.

A STUDENT faces a criminal record after putting her feet on a train seat. Kathleen Jennings, a maths student at Manchester University who lives in Oldham, took her feet off the seat after being questioned by a rail officer. She has now been summoned to appear before magistrates. Her father Tony said: “Why couldn't a fixed penalty notice be given? She could end up with a criminal record on her CV, which could affect her future. It's madness.”

TWO 15-YEAR-OLD girls from Salford, who were caught waving imitation guns at a CCTV camera on Dale Street, have been arrested and cautioned by police. Superintendent Mark Burtonwood, of Greater Manchester Police said: “This is reckless behaviour by two young people who clearly didn't care that people saw them waving what appear to be firearms around in public.” The girls were held in cells before being interviewed and released hours later.

SALFORD is one of the best places to live in Britain according to a survey of cities with rich lifestyle at affordable prices. The balance of up-market restaurants, bars and top-performing state schools alongside fast food chains, value supermarkets and betting shops gave Salford an affluent score.

THE GLAZER family have dismissed talks that Manchester United is to be sold. Recent reports have suggested that the club is being targeted by overseas investors. A spokesman for the family said: “The Glazer family are not engaged in any discussion with any prospective bidder and it is not courting bidders for Manchester United.”
