Manchester 250: Tuesday 7 August

Airport blacks out and Heinze means business.

Published on August 7th 2007.

A POWER CUT at Manchester Airport has caused delays this morning. A power surge reportedly blew circuits at 5.30am causing phone lines and computers to go down. Electrical power has now been fully restored with no knock-on effect to flights. The full reason behind the fault is still unknown.

AN ARSON attack on a dance studio on Newton Street has caused water and smoke damage across two floors. This is the second fire this year for Sunshine Studios, who were in the process of recovering and rebuilding from the first fire at their Dale Street premises back in May. A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: “The incident is being treated as arson and inquiries are continuing.”

SMOKING FINES have been issued at a Shesha café in Cheetham Hill. The fines, which are the first to be issued in Manchester, were given to three people caught smoking the fruit flavoured tobacco waterpipes inside Shesha Lounge. Environmental Health Officers are now considering court action.

UNITED defender, Gabriel Heinze made a return to the club on Monday to discuss his future and to try and secure a move to Liverpool. The Argentinean says he has a letter from United allowing him to leave for £6.8m. However, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has said this move will not happen. United Chief Executive David Gill said: “He is a contracted player for two years and unless we receive an offer which is acceptable to us as a club, he will remain with us.”
