Manchester 250: Tuesday 25 September

Shere Khan’s sheer nightmare and boys choir chaos

Published on September 25th 2007.

ANCOATS is to get a 381ft apartment block. Plans have now been finalised for the £82m Gravity development on Store Street to begin in March 2008. The tower will include 373 flats with a starting price of £130,000 as well as over 17,500sq ft of mixed-use space for offices, retailers and eateries. Developers, Time and Tide have said the name Gravity has been chosen to reflect the pull of the Eastern Gateway location.

SHERE KHAN Group chief executive, Nighat Awan, 52, has been arrested by police investigating the smuggling of illegal immigrants into the country. Mrs Awan who plays a key role in the success of the Manchester-based restaurant chain, has strongly denied any involvement. A spokesperson for Mrs Awan said: “Far from being involved in anything illegal, she has worked for a long time in the past as a human rights charity worker.”

MANCHESTER BOYS CHOIR is in crisis after 26 lead choir members have joined a rival group. For the first time in its 26 year history, the council-funded choir has had to launch a recruitment campaign to replace lost members. Organisers insist the choir has not been disbanded, however there are currently no events or performances scheduled.

SVEN-GORAN ERIKSSON will be paying close attention to Georgios Samaras tonight, as the 22-year-old gets set to resurrect his career in the Carling Cup match against Norwich. Eriksson said: “It would be a mistake to forget about Samaras. He may be saying to himself `I will show that stupid Swede!'”
