On September 11, , the body of nine-year-old Sharon Sparks was found dumped on a grass verge on a remote country lane. She had suffered severe head and facial injuries in an incident which sent shockwaves through the town. A huge investigation was launched with 60 detectives working on the case. After several police interviews the former soldier admitted killing Sharon, telling police he had picked the schoolgirl up from a bus stop near her home in Shawforth. We are prevented from showing his face for legal reasons, following an order made in Northern Ireland. Why was that allowed to happen? Despite not living together the pair were close.

The shuttle represents cotton spinning, and the cylinders and calico the industry of printing that material. The stag is from the arms of the local family of Hargreaves, of Broad Oak, who were closely connected with calico printing.
Perpetrators[ edit ] Twelve men were initially charged with sex trafficking and other offences including: Nine men were convicted, of whom eight were of British Pakistani origin and one was an Afghan asylum-seeker. Of the three not convicted, one was cleared of all charges, the jury was unable to reach a verdict in the case of the second, and the third was not present at the trial after fleeing to Pakistan whilst on bail.
Two worked for the same taxi firm and another two worked at a takeaway restaurant; some came from the same village in Pakistan and another pair shared a flat. Despite one victim going to the police in to report the child grooming , the Crown Prosecution Service decided not to prosecute two men, invoking the witness’s credibility. Between and , Sara Rowbothan, made more than attempts to alert police and social services but was told the witnesses were not reliable.
One victim, a year-old known as the Honey Monster, acted as a recruiter, procuring girls as young as 13 for the gang. The victims were coerced and bribed into keeping quiet about the abuse by a combination of alcohol and drugs, food, small sums of money and other gifts. On one occasion he ordered a girl aged 15 to have sex with Kabeer Hassan, as a “treat” for his birthday — Hassan then raped the girl himself. The ring-leader, year-old Shabir Ahmed, claimed the girls were “prostitutes” who had been running a “business empire” and it was all “white lies”.
He shouted in court, “Where are the white people? You have only got my kind here. Shabir Ahmed received the longest sentence, 19 years for rape, aiding and abetting a rape, sexual assault, trafficking for sexual exploitation and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with children. Kabeer Hassan was sentenced to nine years for rape and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with children.

I am not a morning person. If you don’t believe me, ask literally anyone who has ever had the misfortune of encountering me before 9am. Or my first cup of tea, at least.
The 8 and the 12, the latter taking a circuitous route via Daubhill, Little Hulton, Walkden, Roe Green and Worsley taking a scheduled 55minutes against the rather tightly timed 38 minutes of the more direct 8. Quite apart from the fascinating stuff we saw and rode on the way up, across and back down again, the Stockport and Manchester Crossleys made a great impression, and so did the great variety of operators working into Manchester, but I remember being especially taken by those lovely Salford Daimlers with their straight staircases, destination-winder trunnions and the no-nonsense, upright Metro-Cammell bodies.
To have lasted so long with such rough treatment these wonderfully characterful vehicles must have been as solidly-built as they looked—or were the fitters kept busy? I bet someone knows! I read that Salford always put their newest buses on the 15, which ran to Piccadilly, to impress their neighbours “across the river”. This has now been superseded by Shudehill Bus Station, which is actually in Manchester, and the whole area around Victoria Bridge Street is being redeveloped.
And yes, I agree about “Arndale”! On the radiator subject I only ever remember the radiator was far forward and was informed at the time it was because of the longer engine. My first encounter with the forward entrance Leylands was on the 73 from Whitefield to Victoria, a pleasure to drive. Your epic trip from Reading to Grimsby via Salford sounds worthy of an article, describing route, rolling stock and how long it took!
Might we be hearing from you shortly? Given that the Daimlers had not only been in the fleet for 16 years by the time you started but for the majority of those years had been the bulk of the fleet and given newer Daimlers with preselector boxes had entered the fleet in the early s, I have to ask where the fault lay — bad maintenance or poor driver training after the departure of Charles Baroth? From my experience of the Salford ones I would imagine them to be the full at No matter what training you give a driver, if he wants to ignore it he will.
Ties to be played between March Ground staff clear the lines. Spurs, eight-times FA Cup winners, will now be away to Premier League rivals Swansea in the quarter-finals as they continue their quest to win a first major trophy since lifting the English League Cup in Rochdale’s Joe Thompson, falls under pressure from Tottenham Hotspur’s Mousa Dembele and Tottenham Hotspur’s Eric Dier Third-tier strugglers Rochdale were unchanged from the side that held Spurs to a draw in the original tie while Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino made nine changes from the side which snatched a league win at Crystal Palace last time out.
Spurs thought they had taken an early lead thanks to Erik Lamela’s close-range finish.

A vandalised bench in Gosforth Park which appears to have been set on fire overnight Image: Newcastle Chronicle Councillors got involved in the clean up effort at Gosforth Central Park , after thugs caused damage over the weekend. Four councillors and one resident spent an hour scraping plastic off of the ground and sweeping up mess after a bench was torched. East Gosforth Councillor Dominic Raymont explained that he believed the vandals started the fire in a wheelie bin, judging by the amount of plastic at the scene.

Ossett’s Textile Mills. When you look at any old pictures of Ossett, especially those pictures taken from the outskirts of the town, an enduring feature is the sheer number of smoking mill chimneys that punctuate the skyline.
Ossett’s Textile Mills When you look at any old pictures of Ossett, especially those pictures taken from the outskirts of the town, an enduring feature is the sheer number of smoking mill chimneys that punctuate the skyline. Every respectable Ossett textile mill had a chimney and usually a mill dam too. So numerous and prominent were these huge brick structures that you might think that there had been a competition among those pioneering Ossett businessmen to see who could build the biggest and best mill chimney.
The smoke pollution from the mill chimneys was a constant nuisance and the stonework on Ossett Holy Trinity Church has been permanently stained by soot from the smoke from coal-fired steam boilers that powered Ossett’s industry. Several Ossett mill-owners were prosecuted in the 19th century because the smoke from their mill chimneys was regarded as a public nuisance. The rag and mungo trade was unquestionably Ossett’s primary industry and there were rag warehouses and textile mills all around the town.
In , only the mill of Edward Clay and Sons on Wesley Street has survived the gradual decline in the industry.
