  2. Senior Investigating Officer Bob Tonge said: The court heard how Paul and his friend James Falconer were set upon and assaulted by a gang armed with weapons whilst walking in Clifton in March 2005. Paul, originally from Eccles, had spent the day with his mum (Susan) and partner as well as a friend in the Newmarket pub in Swinton until around 7.30pm. At 8.10pm calls were made to police from two different women saying that there was a man being attacked close to the Lord Nelson pub. Officers arrived at the scene shortly after whereupon they found Paul on the ground suffering from severe head injuries, Paul was found alone, no one else was in the area known locally as the Sandy Path. Paul spent a week in hospital before sadly succumbing to his injuries, leaving behind a girlfriend who was pregnant with his twin children, who have both sadly had to grow up without ever knowing meeting their father. New evidence emerged as a witness came forward with vital information that helped secure the convictions. Paul Croft's mother has spoken about her heartache at the loss of her son as his killers are jailed 12 years on from his murder, saying: Our thoughts are with Paul's family and his children today as justice has finally been served upon those who stole him away from them by inhumanely cutting short his life.
  3. Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue service were called to the scene of the fire on Wardley industrial Estate close to Swinton just before midnight on Saturday the 6th of May, after the alarm was raised by locals who had discovered the blaze. UPDATE - 23:40 pm A joint investigation to establish whether the fire was caused by arson is on-going. UPDATE - 19:40 pm UPDATE - 10:00 am Manchester Road between Swinton and Walkden remains closed this morning due to a pylon cable which was brought down as a result of the fire and is blocking the A6, it is thought that the road will be opened again at some point in the afternoon. If you are in planning to use that stretch of the road then please use an alternative route. UPDATE - 3:38am 20 people have been evacuated from their homes following damage caused by the downed power cable. Residents have been given temporary accommodation by the local Emergency Planning Officer. The cable has also affected the train line between Manchester and Wigan which will be closed off until further notice. Power lines have fallen between Moor Side and Walkden stations. The fire is believed to be involving a large quantity of recycled computer parts in an industrial sized container. A downed power line has also caused problems at the scene and is being made safe by the National Grid. Holloway Drive is closed off until further notice while the incident is brought undercontrol. Group Manager Paul Starling who is at the incident said: At its peak there were eight fire engines at the scene, but this has since been scaled down to six due to the fire crew’s speedy response. An investigation into the cause will take place once we have made the area safe. Thick black smoke was reported to have blown across the carriageways of the M60 around junctions 14 to 15 as well as also across the M61. The NPAS helicopter was scrambled with its heat sensing cameras to help pinpoint the heart of the inferno to help those on the ground bring the blaze under control. It as yet remains unclear as to how the fire started but this is not the first time Salford has witnessed a recycling centre on fire as in March 2015 a blaze ripped through buildings at a neighbouring centre, just up the road in Clifton. A year earlier in March 2014 a similar fire caused by Arson tore through a site at Duncan Street - Ordsall, which led to operators Recovered Fuels Shipping Ltds loosing its licence later that year in July. Both previous blazes took days to get under control, smoke and fumes Like lingered in the air around the sites for sometime and in the case of the latter several roads, including Oldfield Road and Liverpool Street, were shut.

    The victim was rushed to Salford Royal Hospital by emergency services and treated for the serious injuries inflicted to his neck. Police say it is still unclear how the man came to be in this condition and an investigation is on going to establish the exact circumstances.
  6. James Paul Wilde, 28, residing at Rake Lane, Swinton stood in the dock at Manchester & Salford Magistrates court today, charged with the historic 11 year old murder of Paul Croft in an alleyway alongside the Lord Nelson Pub in Pendlebury. On the 31st of March 2005 police received a call that Paul had been found beaten battered and with severe head injuries, whereupon he was rushed to Manchester Royal (Hope), sadly dying of his injuries a week later aged just 19 years old and having tragically never met his twin sons who were born just three months later. Several arrests were made at the time but none of them resulted in charges being made despite several appeals to the public for information and (GMP) offering a £50,000 reward in 2010. Prosecutor Eileen Rogers told the court that his appearance was relating to murder charges from 2005 and that it would need to be referred for a future date at Crown court. Wilde was then remanded in custody as the case was adjourned until his appearance at Crown on November 14th. Wilde had previously been arrested in March 2005 and February 2006, a police spokesman said. This latest arrest comes after a reopening of this 'Cold Case' and a fresh look at the evidence. As Mr Wilde was lead away a female could be heard weeping, he shouted up to the Gallery "I'll ring you tonight'. 11 years is a long time for any family to wait for justice but they never gave up fighting, nor did they give up hope of finally bringing Paul's killer to justice. This is a further step along the way.
