  12. To be honest, I had certain reservations about writing this story for fairly obvious reasons of sensitivity, but I think it should be retold and you can make your own mind up on this matter. Six years old, Elizabeth Nolan lived at the back of a property at 116 Regent Road, Salford and attended the nearby Mount Carmel R.C. school, only 100 yards from her home. .map-responsive{ overflow:hidden; padding-bottom:32.4%; position:relative; height:0; border: 2px solid #fff; background: #262e33; border-radius: 2px 2px 2px 2px; } Her mother took her to school at 1.50pm on Tuesday 16th April and the girl was last seen leaving the school at 4 pm with other schoolchildren. The alarm was raised by her parents when she didn't return home and a search of the local area was carried out including the nearby River Irwell all to no avail. As the days passed without any sign of Elizabeth her parents must have feared the worst, sadly their worst nightmare would come true. A water inspector, Robert Smith was walking along the bank of Shawbrook, which was close to the Burnage and Wilmslow boundary the following Monday, 22nd April when he spotted a child's body lying in two feet of water and quickly summoned the police, who confirmed that the body was of Elizabeth Nolan. An inquest was held at Manchester Coroners Court the following week under the supervision of Mr Sturridge the Manchester Deputy Coroner where some rather unusual facts emerged. Elizabeth's mother told the court had not been accustomed to wandering off on her own and although she had only been attending school for two days, her home was only 100 yards away and she knew her way home on her own. A teacher from the school confirmed that Elizabeth had left school on time along with other children. Robert Smith who found the body told the court it would have been impossible for her body to have been washed down the stream as it was only six inches deep in parts. Sergeant Collins from Salford Police said that enquiries had failed to find anybody who saw her, after she left school, he then added that the place where her body was found - some three miles away from her home - was a quarter of a mile from the nearest cottage and it was 100 yards on either side of the streams banks to the nearest footpath. Continuing with his evidence he said that it was possible that she could have slipped on the bank, struck her head against something, then she would have become insensible and drowned, however, there were no marks of a struggle on the path alongside the stream. Next to give evidence was Dr Heslop who had made a post-mortem examination on Elizabeth, he said there was a bruise on the back of her head and then added somewhat horrifically and possibly needlessly that rats had attacked the body and eaten part of her! He could only surmise if she had been hit on the head with a stone as the bruise had been caused before her death and may have been caused by her accidentally falling into the brook and striking her head. Detective Inspector Hoare of Salford Police said he and his force had made the fullest enquiries into her disappearance but were unable to ascertain as to how the child had got to the spot where she was found. The Deputy Coroner described the case as being, "a sad one" and remarked that it was extraordinary that the child could have wandered so far without being noticed and there was nothing to show she had gone with other children or was taken away by someone and the only verdict he deliver was, "An Open Verdict" There are so many unanswered questions in this case that it beggars belief that this verdict was reached at. How on earth could a six-year-old girl simply vanish off the face of the earth, Regent Road was one of the busiest thoroughfares in Salford with 100's of shops and traffic streaming into and out of Manchester, surely somebody saw her? How did she manage to "wander" some three miles to the place of her death without being seen, to a place that she had never been to before, I assume, and its a hell of a walk for a six-year-old. Her injuries seem to be as consistent with being struck on the head and being pushed into the ditch, possibly to conceal her body from prying eyes. Did schoolchildren take her there as a prank that went horribly wrong, and she accidentally fell into the ditch banging her head causing them to panic and run off, I doubt that as young children could not have kept that dreadful secret for that long. Finally, the worst case scenario is that Elizabeth was abducted on the street near her home, possibly by someone who knew her or that she trusted, or a complete stranger befriended her and lured her to her death. A very, very sad story, but it would be good if some truth were to be finally revealed after all these years, if only for her family's sake, a sad and mysterious case indeed.
  13. A man has been charged after a police officer was left with a two-inch head wound whilst attempting to make an arrest. Anthony Robertson (18/07/79) of Bury New Road, Salford has been charged with assault and a public order offence. .map-responsive{ overflow:hidden; padding-bottom:32.4%; position:relative; height:0; border: 2px solid #fff; background: #262e33; border-radius: 2px 2px 2px 2px; } He remains in custody and is due to appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ this morning, Thursday 17 May 2018. At around 6.10pm on Tuesday 15 May 2018, police were called to a report of indecent exposure on Dean Brook Close, Moston.
  14. Christopher Leslie Partington (25/01/1985) of Wildbrook Road, Salford has been charged with seven offences contrary to Section 58 (1)(a), TACT 2000 which relates to the possession of a document or record likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism. .map-responsive{ overflow:hidden; padding-bottom:32.4%; position:relative; height:0; border: 2px solid #fff; background: #262e33; border-radius: 2px 2px 2px 2px; } He will remain in Police custody and is expected to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court tomorrow morning, Wednesday 16 May 2018.

  15. The Veterans Garage, based at Barton Airport in Eccles will see the £1.6 million restoration of the UK’s first ever airport terminal which is being transformed into a hub for veterans, emergency service personnel and the community. .map-responsive{ overflow:hidden; padding-bottom:32.4%; position:relative; height:0; border: 2px solid #fff; background: #262e33; border-radius: 2px 2px 2px 2px; } The first stage – the conversion of a portacabin into a comfortable lounge serving refreshments from 9am to 6pm seven days a week - will be opened by the Ceremonial Mayor of Salford, Councillor Peter Connor. Project manager Dan Redshaw and his father David launched the Veterans Garage scheme after his brother Jayson struggled to cope with the aftermath of service in Afghanistan with the Royal Engineers where his close friend Sapper Elijah Bond was killed in an IED attack. The family share a love of all things automotive – from classic and supercars to motorcycles and scooters – and thought a car and motorcycle restoration centre run by and for veterans could help them combat post-traumatic stress disorder, make new friends and integrate with the local community through a shared interest. Dan said: Dan says the Veterans Garage is also his way of saying thank you to Jayson who gave him one of his kidneys. www.veteransgarage.co.uk
