Manchester 250: Tuesday 6 November

Good signs for Cheshire and Stephen strips for City

Published on November 6th 2007.

THOUSANDS of road signs have been taken down across Cheshire following complaints that they were confusing motorists. The 4000 signs were removed from around Chester and Macclesfield as part of a nationwide clear-up of unwanted or unneeded traffic signs, which were bombarding motorists with too much information. The signs will be recycled or stored and reused.

THE IDENTITY of a man who was involved in a bizarre body mix-up last week has been discovered. The man, originally believed to be Thomas Dennison, was cremated by his mother only for it to be revealed the next day that he was alive. The dead man was actually named as Michael Collins, and his brother is now due to collect his ashes.

BUS AND TRAM operators are preparing to give travelers the best Christmas transport possible this year. Stagecoach will be running trams until 10.30pm on Christmas Eve and until 1.45am on New Year’s Eve. Trains, however, will be finishing earlier with all services running down from 7pm on Christmas Eve and most from 8pm on New Year’s Eve.

MANCHESTER CITY are back up to third in the Premier League following their 1-0 win over Sunderland. The winning goal came from Irish midfielder Stephen Ireland. He marked the winning goal by dropping his shorts to reveal Superman boxer shorts. Manager Sven-Goran Eriksson said: “I’m very happy for Stephen. He scored such a good goal, and such an important one as well.” The result leaves City just two points behind Arsenal and Manchester United.
