  1. A huge well done to Aldi after stepping in to replace all of the items stolen from a local foodbank in Broughton. Truly showing the real spirit of Salford. Regional managing director Ruth Doyle at Aldi said she was appalled to hear that their donation to tackle period poverty had been taken from a storage unit at Mocha parade, Broughton. In a press release she said: The final distribution of the £2,500 donation to help women in period poverty and local families had been due to take place this week – but staff and volunteers were left in tears when they discovered thieves had broken in and cleaned out the entire unit. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said he was delighted with the news and that he couldn’t thank Aldi enough for their kindness. Tom Togher, Chief Officer of Salford Citizen’s Advice and Salford Foodshare added: Salford City Council has identified new, secure storage for the donation. Meanwhile as we reported earlier today, police are determined to bring those who carried out this appalling act to justice.

The fire thought to be set by arsonists was quickly extinguished and only minor damage was reported to the historic building. Then in the early hours of this morning (7th Aug) shortly after 5.50 am, police were called to reports of a fire at wasteland on Greenwood Street, Salford. Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service and police were in attendance, and the fire has now been brought under control. A huge plume of smoke could be seen drifting across the City skyline this morning, it is thought that Tyres and light goods were set on fire. Travel on the trains was also affected with Northern rail issuing a statement on temporary suspensions: There were road closures in place. Ford Lane was closed to the public at the junction of Broughton Road, and Greenwood Street was closed at the junction of Redwood Street. Cordons have since been removed. Enquiries in to the full circumstances around this incident are ongoing.
