Manchester 250: Thursday 29 November

Police go on a gun run and teacher says no phones for you

Published on November 29th 2007.

POLICE have arrested 23 people in Stretford, Sale, Fallowfield, Levenshulme, Gorse Hill and Old Trafford in connection with gang related activities after a sawn-off shotgun was found in the wall of a garden shed in Clinton Avenue, Fallowfield. Police also recovered ammunition as well as recovering a stun gun and machetes.

A £400 FINE has been issued to a woman in Horwich for leaving her wheelie bin in the wrong place. The 26-year-old mum received the bill after failing to pay a fixed penalty notice issued in July for leaving her bin in the alleyway behind her house. The council says the crackdown is because abandoned bins attract arsonists.

A TEENAGER has been removed from her school by her parents because a teacher refuses to hand back a mobile phone confiscated for two weeks. The phone went off in a maths lesson at Siddal Moor Sports College in Rochdale and is being retained in line with the school’s policy. Lindsay and Steven Mossop claim the school’s actions are over the top and have contacted police to investigate whether it is theft.

CITY’S transfer list negotiations are going well between boss Sven-Goran Eriksson and owner Dr Thaksin Shinawatra. Eriksson told mcfc.co.uk: “In this moment Dr Thaksin has a very long list, but I’ve told him it will be shorter and shorter. He knows what we are thinking about and what we are talking about. That was done last week and he didn’t seem to be too shocked – so that was good.”
