Manchester 250: Friday 7 September

Trains back on track and new centre is music to Hooky’s ears

Published on September 7th 2007.

POLICE are once again appealing for information on the murder of Jessie James - as we approach the first anniversary of his death. Jessie was shot three times as he cycled through a Moss Side park in September 2006. Detective Superintendent Shaun Donnellan, Senior Investigating Officer for the murder, said: “I am sure there are still people out there who have information.”

METROLINK lines to Bury are to reopen next Thursday after six weeks of disruptions. Nearly 40 miles of worn-out track have been replaced totaling a cost of around £100m. Michael Renshaw from Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive said: “Tram journeys on the Bury line will now be much smoother, quieter and more reliable.”

A MUSIC CENTRE has been opened on Newton Street for Manchester’s budding young musicians. Trafford College launched the £1.5m centre with the help of Peter Hook from Joy Division/ New Order and Mani from the Stone Roses and Primal Scream. Peter Hook dedicated the centre to the memory of Anthony Wilson. He said: “It's nice to see the council dignitaries all here who are now recognising how important music is to the city, and that's down to Tony.”

SVEN-GORAN Eriksson is confident his current City team are fully capable of taking him through to January’s transfer window. Despite having a distinct shortage of strikers, Eriksson is happy with the strength of his squad. He said: “We have to play the kind of football that we played in the first 10 or 15 minutes against Blackburn.”
