Manchester 250: Monday 20 August

Final farewell for Tony and Geovanni delivers for City

Published on August 20th 2007.

THE FUNERAL of Anthony Wilson is taking place today. The respected broadcaster, journalist and musical entrepreneur will have a service at the city centre’s Roman Catholic church, St Mary’s at 2pm. For tributes from Manchester Confidential readers to Anthony Wilson check out our Icon of a City dies story.

SALFORD UNIVERSITY may be forced to pay back £500,000 of public money following reports that they failed to carry out work funded by the public. Reports suggest that a training scheme which received millions of pounds in European grants never took place. Auditors were brought in to investigate last year. Salford University have said they have not received a refund request from auditors.

NINE PEOPLE including five children were rescued from a rooftop in Oldham last night, after a fire broke out in the shop below. The fire broke out in a general store on Ashton Road at 6pm. Fire fighters went up to the flat above the store following reports of people on the roof. Two adults were rescued by passers-by and the five children and remaining adults were rescued by firefighters.

MANCHESTER CITY are top of the table following a win over United. Sven Goran Eriksson's side defeated Manchester United 1-0 thanks to a deflected strike from Geovanni. Despite dominating the game, United failed to score making this their worst start to a Premier League season since 1992 when they managed just one point from their opening three matches. It is also the worst start by any defending champions.
