Manchester 250: Tuesday 11 December

Today’s city news in two hundred and fifty words

Published on December 11th 2007.

A TODDLER has escaped an airport accident with minor injuries after becoming stuck on a baggage conveyor belt. The two-year-old girl became separated from her parents in the check-in hall of Terminal 2 of Manchester Airport after she crawled under a check-in desk. It is not known as to whether the girl passed through an x-ray machine or how far she actually travelled on the conveyor belt exactly. However, she was found in the first of three tiers of the baggage system and taken to Wythenshawe Hospital with cuts and bruises.

A MAN who plummeted 40ft down a lift shaft in Manchester’s CIS Tower has walked away without a scratch. Contractor, Michael Burke, stepped into the empty lift on the ground floor, however the lift was not there and he fell into the basement. CIS confirmed that the Health and Safety Executive has been alerted to the broken lift.

SACKED nurse, Karen Reissmann has lost her appeal to be reinstated after her controversial dismissal for speaking out about the NHS. A strike of up to 150 mental health workers took place in Manchester with the backing of Unison trade union. There will now be another protest at 6pm tonight in Piccadilly Gardens.

SIR ALEX FERGUSON has accepted an FA charge of misconduct. Ferguson has admitted using abusive and insulting words towards an official after an exchange with referee Mark Clattenburg at Bolton last month. He has not requested a personal hearing and a regulatory commission will now consider the charge.

Its a strange world.The Coop/CIS remove the resident maintenance staff from the Cis Building, gives a pep talk to the outside contractors of saving the company £2 million a year.And shortly afterwards a visitor to the building falls down the lift shaft. Not a contractor working on the lift. Once again penny pinching can have dire consequences.
