Manchester 250: Wednesday 10 October

Eid Mubarak and GMP aren’t a force to be reckoned with

Published on October 10th 2007.

GREATER MANCHESTER POLICE have been ranked among the worst forces in the country. GMP was assessed as good in tackling serious crime but poor on satisfaction and fairness. The force believe the unofficial rankings could be damaging. Ken Jones, president of the Association of Chief Police Officers said: “The framework is of a complex nature, somewhat bureaucratic, costly for forces to administer and is open to misinterpretation.”

A MAN is critically ill in hospital after falling from a second floor window of a city centre apartment. Police attended the flat on Dale Street after reports that a 25-year-old man had plunged around 40ft from the window at 3.20am. Inquiries have begun and the man remains in Manchester Royal Infirmary.

EID celebrations are expected to take place between Friday 12 and Saturday 13 October. Thousands of people will gather in and around Rusholme for the festivities. Superintendent John O'Hare from Greater Manchester Police said: “This may mean that journeys through Rusholme are likely to take longer than usual.” The main area for delays will be along Wilmslow Road, between Platt Lane and Moss Lane East, however traffic may extend back to the city centre and Fallowfield.

CITY player Stephen Ireland has pulled out of Ireland’s squad for their European Championship qualifier against Germany and Cyprus on Tuesday. He said: “I have thought long and hard about whether I would do my country and myself justice if I joined up with the squad. Unfortunately, I don't believe I would on this occasion.”
