Cops cock up and Sharks Sale home

Published on September 11th 2007.

DISGRACED detective, David Smith, 49, who retired from Greater Manchester Police after being branded a liar by the judge in the bungled Harold Shipman case, was given a new £30,000 a year job by the force as a civilian expert. After releasing they had made a mistake, a police spokesman said: “We have reviewed the recruitment process and accept that the wrong decision was made. His temporary contract with GMP will not be confirmed and he will cease his employment with the force.”

POLICE PATROLS will be increased in Manchester’s Jewish communities over their High Holy days. The extra policing will aim to reassure communities and deter anti-Semitism activity, particularly in Salford, Bury and North Manchester. Chief Insp Karan Lee said: “This time of year generates a particular demand and an appropriate response is required.”

BUSINESS EXPERTS in the region have reported on the regeneration challenges facing Greater Manchester over the next 20 years. The report by the British Chamber of Commerce- A Tale Of Cities: The Best Of Times?- highlights progression made, as well as what will need to be achieved for Greater Manchester to become a world class city-region by 2025.

SALE SHARKS players Charlie Hodgson, Magnus Lund and Chris Jones have all been left at home whilst England defend their World Cup title in France. Sharks coach Kingsley Jones said: “They are quality players and should be playing on a world stage, but it makes my job easier to have them with us and not with England.”
