Manchester 250: Thursday 9 August

Murder arrests made and Scholes makes a comeback

Published on August 9th 2007.

ARRESTS have been made over the shooting of schoolboy Jessie James last year. The turn-around came after a new witness came forward on Monday with vital evidence. The suspects are a 21-year-old man from Old Trafford and a 20-year-old man from Hulme. The men were arrested separately this morning on suspicion of murder and are currently being questioned.

A HOME OWNER has been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent, after an intruder fell from the balcony of his top floor flat in Chorlton. Patrick Walsh, 56, confronted the intruder who he awoke to find ransacking his flat. Reports suggest the intruder tried to escape through the window before falling to the concrete yard. The suspected burglar is fighting for his life after the incident.

URBIS is preparing for its 0161 Festival this Sunday. The venue will play host to a showcase of Mancunian musical talent as well as interactive activities for children and adults alike. Guests can try their hand at belly dancing, face painting and graffiti art at the free festival. The event is on Sunday 12 August from noon until 4pm in Cathedral Gardens, next to Urbis.

PAUL SCHOLES returned to United last night on top form with a 4-0 friendly win over Dunfermline. Scholes was a shock inclusion to the team line-up which included Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney and new signing Owen Hargreaves making his debut. Scholes, who had a knee operation only two weeks ago, could also play against Reading on Sunday.
