Manchester 250: Friday 31 August

Diana remembered and Keane to be re-United

Published on August 31st 2007.

A 23-YEAR-OLD woman has been raped in a telephone box in Urmston. The attack happened as the victim tried to help the man who appeared to be lost. As she went into a phone box near the Nags Head circle, the man raped her before running off. The attacker is described as a white, 5ft 8in, of medium build and aged in his early 20s. He had short brown hair, a cleft lip and was wearing a short-sleeved grey shirt with a white emblem.

HUNDREDS of people will be attending a memorial service at Manchester Cathedral today to remember Princess Diana on the tenth anniversary of her death. Similar services will be taking place across the country. Princess Diana died, aged 36, along with her companion Dodi Al Fayed, 42, in a car crash in Paris.

MOTORISTS turning left off Chester Road near Stretford Mall have been puzzled by what could be Britain’s shortest and most pointless double-yellow lines. The lines are on one of Greater Manchester’s busiest roads and are too short to a vehicle. Matthew Colledge, for Trafford council, said: “A review of all waiting restriction markings is under way and anomalies like this are being noted and corrected.”

FORMER UNITED CAPTAIN Roy Keane will return to Old Trafford on Saturday as manager of Sunderland. This will be the first time Keane has been up against his former team as an opposing manager. Sir Alex Ferguson told Setanta Sports: “Roy has the wherewithal to be a top-class manager.”
