Manchester 250: Tuesday 2 October

Cathedral cracks down and the future’s bright for City

Published on October 2nd 2007.

A DENTIST has been jailed for 18 months for defrauding the NHS of up to £140,000.Olowashe Olojugb, 67, from Wigan, claimed for thousands of gold crowns and bridges which he had not provided to patients. Liverpool Crown Court heard that he had made 426 false claims while working in Hulme and Appley Bridge.

SECURITY is to be tightened at Manchester Cathedral. CCTV cameras are to be installed after thieves caused £2,500 worth of damage to a stained glass window. Canon Paul Denby said: “The thieves had kicked their way in through the stained glass window before smashing a cash box full of 10 pence pieces. We are now being forced to go down the route of CCTV, which we didn't want to do.”

A VICTORIAN house has been bought by Manchester City Council for £450,000 only to be demolished. The house on Ashton Old Road, Openshaw, is to be bulldozed to make way for new homes. Karen Abbad from the Openshaw Residents' Association has said: “The council are paying for a house that could be converted back into a house, or into the flats it is in, for a lot less, which is a waste of public funds.”

MANCHESTER CITY may be enjoying a great start to the season but Manager Sven-Goran Eriksson insists we can expect even better performances from his squad. He said: “The players are young and hungry and the new ones we have brought in love the Premier League. I think we will get better.”
