Manchester 250: Friday 3 August

An Airport ASBO and a methadone mix-up

Published on August 3rd 2007.

AN AIRPORT ASBO has been given to a man caught stealing chocolate from WH Smith in terminal one of Manchester Airport. Richard McGuire, 36, from Wythenshawe, who has a string of convictions for shoplifting, has been banned from visiting the airport for three years and sentenced to three months in prison. He is however, allowed to pass through the terminals provided he has a valid flight ticket.

HEROIN substitute, methadone was found in a prescription bag meant for a four-year-old girl. Carolina D’Alessandro from West Didsbury found the bottle of methadone which was placed alongside medication for her daughter Constanza. Manor Pharmacy has apologised to the family and given them a £50 gift voucher as compensation. A spokesman for Manchester Primary Care Trust said: “More than 22,000 prescriptions are issued in Manchester every day and mistakes are rare.”

A FIRE broke out this morning at a petrol works in Bury. Firefighters were called to the site on Walmersley Road to tackle the blaze. Nearby residents were forced to close their windows as smoke covered the area. Motorists are advised to avoid the area. An investigation into the cause of the fire will take place shortly.

CARLOS TEVEZ has finally been given the go-ahead to transfer to United. After weeks of disputes with West Ham over the Argentinian striker’s contract and registration with the Hammers, United have finally sealed the deal. The Premier League now need to approve the settlement in which West Ham are expected to receive £2 million compensation.
