  1. Updated: a 17 year old girl has since been arrested in connection with this attack Emergency services were called to an incident at around 3.25 pm this afternoon in which a teenage girl was found to be suffering from a stab wound after being attacked on Paddington Close in Pendleton Police were quickly on scene and cordoned off an area around Sycamore Court and St Paul's C of E Church. A rapid response until was first on scene, quickly followed by an ambulance to transport the girl to hospital. The teenagers injuries are thought not to be life threatening but this latest stabbing comes not long after another teenager was stabbed in the leg in Weaste earlier this month. And a man was stabbed in the neck not far from where this latest incident took place We will update this post as we get more information.
  2. Emergency services were called to a stabbing at a block of flats on Kiwi Street in pendleton on Monday morning. At around 11am police received a call saying that a man had been stabbed in the neck. The victim who is in his early 20's had suffered a serious but non life threatening injury for which he was taken to hospital to be treated, he remains there this evening. A GMP spokesperson said: Anyone who has any information is asked to contact police on 0161 856 1319, or you can alternatively call 101 quoting reference number 730 of Aug 13.
  3. It has been over one year since the heartbreaking scenes of devastation hit the news after a fire tore through a building wrapped in the same combustible cladding as used on many Salford residential tower blocks. A resident of one of those blocks wrote into postbag to tell of his anger and upset at what he views as a lack of action by Salford City Council and Pendleton Together. ---- I am one of many residents who live in one of the Pendleton Tower Blocks that have similar cladding and insulation to the Grenfell Tower Block. .map-responsive{ overflow:hidden; padding-bottom:32.4%; position:relative; height:0; border: 2px solid #fff; background: #262e33; border-radius: 2px 2px 2px 2px; } Shortly after the Grenfell Tower Fire, the Salford Mayor Paul Dennett announced to the media that all cladding from their nine blocks would be tested and if the tests failed it would be removed. In a later press release, it was revealed he was borrowing £25 million to replace the cladding. Now over a year on from Grenfell, what has happened to the Nine Tower Blocks owned by Salford City Council and run by Pendleton Together? 1) Fire Marshals were put in the Nine Blocks to patrol 24/7. However, we have recently found out that the so-called Fire Marshals have only just recently had training for doing this job. What training we don’t know. 2) Salford City Council/Pendleton Together removed the unsafe cladding from all Nine Blocks, but only the first three floors of each block and replaced it with what Salford City Council and Pendleton Together told residents was a safe boarding. 3) Pendleton Together then told residents to remove all doormats from outside their doors (most doormats are or were fire resistant). If the mats were not removed, the cleaning teams were told to remove them and they were then binned without any further notice to the residents. 4) Pendleton Together then told vehicle owners they could not park in the first two parking spaces that were closest to the building. Every block was supposedly told this, however, if you go round the blocks you will see this is not enforced on all blocks. It is on Thorn but not on Spruce where cars are parked within a couple of feet from the building wall and the same applies to some of the other blocks in the square. 5) The residents of Thorn were also told to remove plastic flower pots from alongside the building. When asked why we were told they could catch fire. Also, chairs and tables were removed from the community garden for the same reason and that the fire service had told Pendleton Together to enforce this. However, when the fire service was asked about this by residents, the residents were told that they had not told Pendleton Together this and that Pendleton Together has taken it upon themselves to implement the rule. 6) Salford City Council and Pendleton Together then decide to install fire alarms in the Tower Block but these are as much use a fire extinguisher that is empty! Why? Because the fire alarms were placed in the stairwell and not on landings, there is a fire door on each landing that acts like a sound buffer so most residents cannot hear the alarm in their flats when they are tested each week. 7) Salford City Council and Pendleton Together in their ultimate wisdom have decided to install new fire alarms and sprinklers in every flat. That consultation was months ago but as they say, silence is golden and in Salford City Councils and Pendleton Together case the silence is deafening. We the residents have not been told if this is going to happen and if so when it will happen. And who at the end of the day is going to be picking up the cost of redecorating residents flats when every room is going to be affected? Pendleton Together is constantly telling us that the safety of their residents is a top priority. Well, it seems something has been lost in the pipeline with their own policy. On Friday the 6th July 2018, one of the hottest days so far, some bright spark from Pendleton Together decided to remove fire extinguishers from the nine blocks that still have the unsafe cladding on them. And no one from Pendleton Together had the decency to contact any member of the resident's committee of Thorn Court to inform them that the fire extinguishers were being removed from the community room and community room kitchen. When a member of the resident's committee contacted Pendleton Together, the housing officer informed him they had been removed in error and would be on the way back to the block, this was at 2:00 pm by 5.30pm the committee member checked to see if the items had been returned. They had not and everyone at Pendleton Together had left the office. So the out of hours service was contacted and after some time two of the three fire extinguishers were returned by the fire marshals. They said that no one from Pendleton Together had informed them that these were being removed. So far no one from Pendleton Together has responded to a voice message I left on Friday.

  4. Eye witness reports say that the man fell from the 12th floor onto the roof of a small building adjoining the tower block, paramedics, fire and police quickly arrived at the scene where upon they immediately attempted to resuscitate him. Police and Fire services gave assistance to the paramedics by providing access to the roof. It is unknown as to the circumstances that led to the man falling but police are still present and the area is currently cordoned off, it will remain so until the police investigation concludes. The condition of the fallen man is currently not known. We will update this post as soon as more info is available. If you can assist the police with their enquiries then please contact them on 101 Image Copyright: Google Earth
