Manchester 250: Friday 6 July

Piccadilly pollutes the city and United tussle for Tevez

Published on July 6th 2007.

BOMB manuals have been found in the home of a 37 year-old, father-of-three from Bolton. Omar Altimimi will be sentenced today after police found the books which detailed how to make bombs, detonators and poison gases along with footage celebrating the executions of Westerners and terrorist attacks including 9/11 and 7/7. His is the first conviction by Greater Manchester Police's new counter terror unit.

PICCADILLY Gardens and the bus station area opposite is the second most polluted city centre site in the country. Readings from the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs have shown high concentrations of sooty particles linked to breathing conditions such as asthma. Figures recorded between January and April showed Piccadilly as the seventh worst polluted location overall in the country.

GREATER MANCHESTER has the worst anti-social behaviour record in Great Britain. Record numbers of Asbo’s are both issued and breached here, which is 38% more than in Greater London. Council Spokesman Eddy Newman said: “I think people would have cause for concern if they found out that Asbos were being breached without the perpetrator being convicted.”

UNITED could be facing a courtroom battle over the signing of Argentinian player Carlos Tevez. The deal is set to be confirmed over the next fortnight, but the question of who actually owns the 23-year-old could become the subject of a legal battle.Tevez's registration until 2010 is currently owned by West Ham. The Premier League could look to block any move unless the Hammers receive the transfer fee.
