Tag team freed and Co-op group flee the coup

Published on October 30th 2007.

THE CO-OPERATIVE GROUP is to move its headquarters on Corporation Street and offices on Hanover Street, Redfern Street and Federation Street. In the next two years the company plans to move to better equipped, modern offices on their own land in the city centre or in the wider Greater Manchester area. It is then hoped that this will make way for vital regeneration of New Century House. The CIS building is not included in any of the plans.

JAILED graffiti pair, Thomas Dolan and Thomas Whittaker of Macclesfield, have had their sentences overturned.

Judges at the Court of Appeal have granted them a two year conditional discharge.

DISGRACED BUSINESSMAN, Reuben Singh, is in the news once again today after failing to pay back a £900,000 loan to the Bank of Scotland. Singh was named the world’s youngest self-made millionaire after forming a fashion chain whilst he was still at Manchester’s William Hulme’s Grammar School. He later sold the chain for just £1 and is now bankrupt.
