Manchester 250: Friday 12 October

Travel agent isn’t Going Places and no smoking for cabbie

Published on October 12th 2007.

A TRAVEL agent is to be investigated following reports that customers’ details were left displayed in the shop window. Private information such as names, addresses and credit card details were allegedly left on desks by the window of Going Places in Manchester city centre. The Associaton of British Travel Agents have said they will be investigating the claims.

A CAB driver has been given a £50 fine for smoking in his vehicle. Iftikhar Ahmed, 50, was spotted by a council official while he was smoking in his parked car in Oldham. Since the July smoking ban came into play, it is now illegal to smoke in any public place, including taxis and private hire vehicles. This case is believed to be the first of its kind in Britain.

A MUM has been jailed for 56 days for driving to pick her children up from school while four and a half times over the limit. Debbie Leonard, 36, has also been banned from driving for three years. Despite pleas from Leonard’s defence that she had been in debt and in a bad relationship, John Pleeth, chairman of the bench at Macclesfield magistrates, said they had no alternative but to impose a custodial sentence.

MICHAEL OWEN could be joining his former international team manager, Sven-Goran Eriksson at the City of Manchester Stadium. Reports suggest that Eriksson will urge the Manchester City board to try to sign Owen, 27, in the January transfer window.
