Manchester 250: Tuesday 28 August

ATM Tunnel found in Fallowfield and a great escape for Solskjaer

Published on August 28th 2007.

WORKMEN have uncovered a vast tunnel leading to an ATM at the Blockbuster Video store close to Fallowfield Retail Park. The discovery was made whilst workmen laid electric cables underground. The 20-metre tunnel was made by a gang in a complex plot to raid the cash machine. Police are yet to work out how the would-be robbers disposed of the soil.

MANCHESTER PARENTS are denying their children £45m in maintenance payments, according to the Child Support Agency (CSA). The agency has revealed each child is losing out on £3,200 in support payments. Lord McKenzie, Child Maintenance Minister, said “The campaign launch sends a strong and simple message to those parents in Manchester who refuse to pay child maintenance: Your time is running out. Act now or we will.”

METROLINK lines in Altrincham and Bury are well on the way to being reopened. Trams will return to the Altrincham line today and the Bury line reopens in mid-September as part of the £100m project to improve the network. Prices will be cut for passengers until work is completed. The transport executive's Michael Renshaw said: “Some of the track we've replaced was more than 50 years old and passengers will notice smoother, quieter and more reliable journeys when the trams run again.”

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER is set to retire from Manchester United. Having been dogged by injuries the 34-year-old will be fondly remembered by the United faithful as the man who won the 1999 European Cup with his last-gasp penalty box strike.
