Manchester 250: Friday 5 October

Say no to strangers and Barton blows his own trumpet

Published on October 5th 2007.

WHITWORTH STREET WEST could be renamed in the memory of Tony Wilson. It has been reported that the street is to become Tony Wilson Way, Anthony H Wilson Way or Wilson Street West. The council believe renaming the street, where the Hacienda building once stood, would be a fitting tribute to Mr Wilson. Plans for the name change now need to be approved by two-thirds of the street’s residents.

POLICE in Wigan are warning children to be on their guard after man tried to entice young children into his van. He approached an 11-year-old boy on Mesnes Road on Monday and an 11-year-old girl on Miles Lane on Thursday. Det Insp Steve Crimmins from Wigan CID said: “We wanted to make sure parents and teachers in Wigan were aware of these incidents, and continued to encourage all children to be wary of strangers.”

MANCHESTER FASHION WEEK kicked off last night at the Urbis. Hosted by Bolton-born Radio One DJ, Sara Cox, the 12 minute fashion show included collections from Matthew Williamson, Paul and Joe and Betty Jackson.

JOEY BARTON has suggested that City owe part of their recent success to him. The midfielder who moved to Newcastle this summer told BBC Radio Five Live: “I hope they appreciate the job I did last season. Were it not for myself, Micah Richards and Richard Dunne the club wouldn't have had Shinawatra, the Premier League and Sven.”
