MANCUNIANS favour finger print readers over chip and pin keypads, according to new research. CPP Identity Protection found that 83 per cent of Mancunians would switch to finger printing as a safer security measure.

THE BRITANNIA HOTEL in Offerton, Stockport has been branded the dirtiest in Britain following fines of over £36,000 for food hygiene offences.

WAYNE ROONEY is back in training for United after suffering a foot injury five weeks ago. Sir Alex Ferguson said: “He’s started training which is good. I’d not have brought him back to training unless he was ready. We have to wait and see how his fitness is after being out but I’m delighted he’s on his way back.”
