Manchester 250: Monday 3 December

Blears in denial, a big extinct beast and Hatton takes heart

Published on December 3rd 2007.

SALFORD MP Hazel Blears is in the clear – according to the MP herself. In the donations scandal dogging the Labour Party, Blears has declared that dealing with donations has never been her job, and that she had no knowledge of the money at the centre of the crisis. The Communities and Local Government Secretary called for party funding to be settled on a permanent basis to avoid confusion and restore faith in politics.

SALES have hit the shops early this Christmas. Retailers in Manchester and nationally are looking at ways to ensure that the predicted slow Christmas doesn’t hit too hard. Most of the major retailers such as Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and Waterstones are advertising discounts and deals. Anecdotally sales in the shops seem lower than usual despite the streets being busy at weekend.

UNIVERSITY of Manchester scientists have helped uncover the secrets of a dinosaur found in the North Dakota hills. The duck-billed Hadrosaur marks a breakthrough in dinosaur study as its fossilised remains include skin features and also internal organs. It’s been called the ‘Tutankhamun of dinosaur finds’ because of its significance and should settle questions of whether dinosaurs had scales or feathers.

RICKY HATTON is determined to become the undisputed champion of the world this Saturday. He believes his street-fighting style and courage will give him the edge over Floyd Mayweather. “I have one thing which nobody can take away, the heart to win. When things get tough, I use that, that heart, to carry me through.’
