FOUR TEENAGERS have been charged with the murder of father-of-three, Garry Newlove, who was attacked by a gang outside his home. Two 16-year-olds, a 15-year-old and18-year-old Adam William Swellings will appear at Warrington Magistrates Court charged with the murder. Mr Newlove died as a result of a haemorrhage caused from a hard blow near his left ear.

TWO GUNS were seized yesterday in Burnage and Heaton Mersey. Armed police seized a handgun from a property on Berwick Avenue at around 6.40pm last night and a second firearm from inside a house on Didsbury Road. A resident said: “This is a very quiet street and we are not used to trouble in this area.”

SALE RUGBY STAR, Andrew Sheridan, known as the strongest man on the English national squad, has been put out of action due to an insect bite. Sheridan, who plays forward for the Sale Sharks, was bitten on his ankle during training and has since been on an intravenous drip. He will now miss England’s warm-up match against Marseille on Saturday.

SIR ALEX FERGUSON will unveil his new signings at tonight’s game against Portsmouth.
