  1. At around 11.30am on Wednesday 23 June police were called to a report of a road traffic collision involving a lorry and two cars on the A57 at Cadishead Way in Irlam. Emergency services attended and a 62-year-old man and a 39-year-old man were both taken to hospital. Despite the best efforts of medical staff, the 62-year-old man has since sadly succumbed to his injuries. The 39-year-old man remains in a critical condition. The driver of the lorry remained at the scene to assist police. No arrests have been made. Police Constable Karl Horner of GMP's Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: Residents at the time called for measures to be taken to stop speeding drivers in the area after a series of accidents along the notorious route. Anyone with information, or dash-cam footage, should call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4741 quoting incident 1074 of 23/06/2021. Anyone with information can also report online or by using the LiveChat function at www.gmp.police.uk. Alternatively, call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
  2. Eight men dressed as grannies travelled from Anfield to Old Trafford on June 26th dressed as grannies to raise £4,800 for specialised physiotherapy for ten-year-old Freya Bailey from Irlam, Manchester. Freya was born with two holes in her heart and has cerebral palsy and epilepsy. Her physiotherapy, which is not available on the NHS, costs around £1,000 per month. Dad Darren, 49, came up with the Scooter Grannies idea in 2016 to help raise funds for an operation which helped ease Freya’s pain. He now has to continue to raise money for ongoing physio which helps to keep her mobile and means she can continue to ride her adapted bike and go swimming. Darren said: In previous years, Darren and his colleagues have scooted from Irlam to Blackpool, Irlam to Chester and Huddersfield to Irlam. They are sponsored by 20 local businesses who sponsor the race to continue to pay for Freya’s physiotherapy – the money raised by this event will cover physio for around the next five to six months. Darren’s next Scooter Grannies event is planned for September. Darren said: Darren and his supporters are also keen to raise funds for other local families with children with disabilities, so this year the £120 collected along the route will support Michelle Vincent and her son Kaiden, 16, who has Angelman Syndrome. Michelle set up a group for local carers @m44 and Darren is also a member. Gill Gibb, CEO of Tree of Hope said: To donate to Freya’s fund, visit https://www.treeofhope.org.uk/freyaslittlelegs/

  5. Plans to expand Springwood Primary School have moved forwards. Today the City Mayor made a decision to move plans forward and increase the capacity by 60 places to meet the need for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) support in the city. A statutory consultation will now open on Monday 19 April. The school in Swinton provides specialist education for children with complex needs from across the city. Pupils who attend the school are from across the whole city and aged from 2 to 11 years old. The children have profound, complex or challenging needs including multiple learning difficulties, severe learning difficulties, communication and interaction needs, autism, and hearing and visual impairments. The decision made by City Mayor Paul Dennett (Tuesday 23 March) means the school can move on with plans to expand at a second site at Craig Hall, Preston Avenue in Irlam. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: Jacqui Wennington, Headteacher at Springwood Primary School said:
  6. After a Review which took place earlier in the year, the Trustees Savings Bank (TSB) at Moorfield Parade in Irlam is set to close on the 25th of May. The move comes as the TSB revealed that 67% of all its customers are now using mobile, online or telephone banking, and in some branches they see an average of just 20 customers regularly visiting each week. Staff are now urging its customers to use the Branch in Eccles in the future should they require counter services as the bank moves more towards online banking as a way to provide its services. The move is part of a larger set of closures of which the TSB hopes will bring them savings of £100m by 2020. However, not all customers are happy at the prospect of having to travel an extra 4.5miles to visit a branch of their bank. Elderly customers are expected to be impacted upon the most due to the changes, with many unable to access or use computers, mobile phones or the internet. Full details on the move can be found below.
  7. Officers were called around 8pm on Friday 19 February 2021 to Liverpool Road, Irlam to a report that two males on a motorcycle had been involved in a collision and a firearm had been located at the scene. It is believed a second vehicle was involved in the collision. Two men, both aged in their early 20s, were taken to hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life threatening. They were subsequently arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm or ammunition with intent to endanger life. They remain in hospital at this time. Officers received a further report around 8.15pm of a vehicle fire on Cutnook Lane, Irlam. Emergency services attended and the vehicle – a black Chrysler – was safely extinguished. Initial enquiries suggest five males had set fire to the vehicle before fleeing the scene. An investigation is ongoing into the collision and vehicle fire but officers are treating these incidents as linked. It is also believed that the motorcycle was involved in a firearm discharge on Kings Road, Irlam minutes prior to the collision. Detective Inspector Zoe Nightingale of GMP’s Salford district, said: Anyone with information, or dashcam footage, is urged to get in touch with police on 0161 856 2079 quoting log 2611 of 19/02/21. Alternatively, details can be passed on anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
  8. A tattooist from Salford, who was found guilty of raping a client and sexual assaulting five other women at his parlour between 2013 and 2019, has been jailed. Paul Little (10/07/1964), of Cutnook Lane, Irlam, was sentenced today (Tuesday 22 December 2020) at Manchester Crown Court, Crown Square, after being previously found guilty of sexual offences against a total of eight women – aged between 19 and 49. The court heard how Little had inappropriately touched the women when they had come in the store to have a tattoo done on them and, on two separate occasions, he exposed himself to them. The worst of Little's offending occurred in May 2014 when he raped a 49-year-old woman after completing a tattoo for her. Little was originally arrested by police in December 2019, after a report was made that he had sexually assaulted a female client at the parlour. Initially, Little was arrested and charged for sex offences concerning four women, but further victims and witnesses came forward after seeing the news in the media. He denied all charges against him and the case was taken to trial with Little being found ‘guilty’ on Monday 23 November 2020 of the following: - One count of rape; - Five counts of sexual assault; - Two counts of indecent exposure. Little has now been ordered to serve eight years and six months in custody. All of the victims have been, and continue to be, supported by specialist officers from GMP and partners agencies including St. Mary’s. Detective Constable Stefani Matthews, of GMP’s Salford CID, said: Greater Manchester is nationally recognised as a model of good practice in terms of support services available to victims. If you or someone you know has been raped or sexually assaulted, we encourage you not to suffer in silence and report it to the police, or a support agency so you can get the help and support available. -Greater Manchester Rape Crisis is a confidential information, support and counselling service run by women for women over 18 who have been raped or sexually abused at any time in their lives.

  9. If you are travelling through Irlam and Cadishead this evening, you should be aware that there has been a serious road traffic collision on Liverpool road close to the Leisure Centre which has resulted in the road being closed by emergency services as they deal with the incident. A stretch of Liverpool Road is closed between Lathom Road and Victoria Road. We are told that the incident thought to have involved 3 vehicles happened shortly after 5:20pm. It is being reported that traffic is being diverted along Cadishead Way (A57) and Fairhills Road. Additionally bus service provider 'Go North West' have diverted the number 67 and 100 busses. Please avoid the area if you can for the time being as delays are expected and at present it is unclear how long the road will be closed for. Earlier this morning (21st November) there was another report of a another vehicle being involved in a collision with a stationary van close to the current scene. The occupants of the vehicle fled the scene before emergency services arrived. We are trying to obtain more information and will update accordingly.
  10. A horrific vehicle collision in Irlam overnight has left a wake of destruction behind as two women occupants said to be responsible fled the scene on foot towards Glenmuir Close. Local 'Core Party' councillor, Darren Goulden, told of how he had been awoken at around 1am in the early hours of this morning (Saturday 21st of November), to what he describes as carnage outside of the 'Cakes by P' shop on Liverpool Road which he owns with his wife. It would appear that a silver Honda estate car collided with his next door neighbours work van, with the resulting impact being so forceful that it shunted the van into the neighbouring garden, damaging a wall and another two other vehicles in the process. It is unbelievable that the occupants were able to free themselves from the wreckage and flee the scene as the impact was so energetic that it sent the traffic calming sign on the street flying over a quarter of a mile along the road and the badge from the silver Honda was found in the BACK garden of the house. Councillor Goulden said that it is a miracle that no one has been killed, adding that anyone with information or CCTV footage should contact the police. Officers are currently on scene and investigating the collision, this morning. If you can help with CCTV footage or were witness to the incident or saw the two women leaving the scene then please get in touch with GMP via 101. Photos: Barry Briggs

  16. A crowd-funding bid has been launched to raise £17,950 for an iconic Manchester sculpture damaged by vandals. The sculpture At the End of the Day has been admired and enjoyed by generations of local people in Irlam (& Cadishead) since it was created by a very talented schoolboy 40 years ago this year. The full-scale replica of a man in a flat cap relaxing on a bench was restored in 2016 and took pride of place on a platform at the refurbished Irlam Station House, where it won a new audience of commuters and visitors, many keen to take a selfie with it. Following vandalism, the statue was moved to safe storage. Campaigners want to mark its 40th anniversary by raising enough money to recreate it, ideally in bronze so that it will be enjoyed outside for several more decades, and restore it to its rightful place at the Station House. In 1978, Simon Law made At the End of the Day for his O-Level art exams, creating it from clay, plaster of Paris, mesh and cloth, with a metallic paint coating finish Then aged 15, the Irlam school pupil was an aspiring sculptor - one of his other creations, a bust of Ena Sharples actress Violet Carson, was bought by Granada Studios. Simon, now a senior design manager for John Sisk and Son, said: The sculpture – also known locally as The Man on the Bench – was on proud display at Irlam High, for years before it had to be rehoused due to school refurbishments. Irlam charity the Hamilton Davies Trust (HDT) became guardians of the statue and funded its restoration in a project which took over 140 hours. It then took pride of place at Irlam Station. Often thought to represent a tired shift-worker from the town’s now defunct steelworks, it has come to symbolise the regeneration of Irlam’s Station House from a run-down building into a vibrant community hub. In 2017, vandals broke off the statue’s leg, leaving the sculpture looking dented and bashed about. HDT is now leading the new appeal to make the statue stronger than ever. It has also submitted a funding request to The Arts Council. Mandy Coleman, Consultant General Manager of HDT, said: Donations can be made on the appeal page: www.gofundme.com/manonthebench
  17. Kenneth Jackson (13/09/1935) of Riverside Avenue, Irlam was sentenced to 21 years in prison and a further one year to be served on licence at Manchester Crown Court today, Friday August 3, after being found guilty of rape and indecent assault. .map-responsive{ overflow:hidden; padding-bottom:32.4%; position:relative; height:0; border: 2px solid #fff; background: #262e33; border-radius: 2px 2px 2px 2px; } Jackson began abusing the victim when she was just four-years-old in the 1970s. Aged 11, the girl was told by Jackson she was being taken to Warrington to buy a coat. Instead, he drove her to an address in Irlam, where he raped her. The abuse continued even up until the girl was aged 16 and in 2017 she contacted police, at which point she was given specialist support and Jackson was arrested. Detective Sergeant Chris Smith of GMP’s Public Protection Investigation Unit said: Greater Manchester is nationally recognised as a model of good practice in terms of support services available to victims. - If you or someone you know has been raped or sexually assaulted, we encourage you not to suffer in silence and report it to the police, or a support agency so you can get the help and support available. - You can call Greater Manchester Police on 101, or alternatively, people can refer themselves to St Mary's Sexual Assault Referral Centre on 0161 276 6515, whether or not you want to make a police report. - St Mary's Sexual Assault Referral Centre in Manchester provides a comprehensive and coordinated forensic, counselling and medical aftercare service to anyone in Greater Manchester who has experienced rape or sexual assault.

  18. Jack McKeever of Sienna Close, Irlam was jailed for two and a half years today after sexually attacked a woman whilst she was sharing a bed with both himself and his girlfriend after a party early last year. .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 partygoers were staying at a friends house and by around 6am most had gone upstairs to bed, McKeever, his girlfriend and the victim had stayed downstairs and made up a makeshift bed out of settees. The 24-year-old McKeever then positioned himself between the two women, once they had both fallen asleep he made his move. The 20-year-old victim said she was awoken after feeling someone touching her inappropriately. Once she realised what was happening she pushed McKeever away but he continued with his assault and proceeded to touch her thigh, at which point the victim jumped out of the bed and went to tell friends what had happened. The victim was so distraught it took her 10 days to be able to come to terms with what had happened and contact the police. McKeever maintained that he had mistaken the victim for his girlfriend as he was half asleep but a jury disagreed and he was found guilty and subsequently sentenced to two and a half years in prison by Judge David Hernandez, who told him: The victim told the court how she had attempted to take her life by overdosing after the incident which has left her feeling that her life has been completely ruined and that she has lost everything. McKeever's defence, Michael Brady, told the court how his client had made a serious error of judgement.

  20. Councillor Karen Garrido (Ceremonial Mayor of the City of Salford) took the time to pay a visit to Irlam Primary School along with Tony Prescott (Hamilton Davies Trust) to cut the ribbon and open the schools new school library, thanks in part to a £3,000 grant from the Hamilton Davies Trust to replenish ageing book stocks. In a day and age when technology rules the lives of many, it's nice to think that kids are still getting the chance to sit in a quiet place and immerse themselves in a good book.
