SALFORD POLICE USE TWITTER TO KEEP IN TOUCH

Salford people can now use Twitter to see what the police are up to in their area and to interact with cops on the beat.

The new police Twitter service is available in all areas of Salford but the Salford Star went down to East Salford to see how it's working on the streets…

@GMPSalfordEast
We've just discovered a Cannabis Farm on Lower Broughton Road. 37 plants in total. Know where anymore are? 0161 8725050!

@GMPSalfordEast
A male has just been arrested on the Crescent for Robbery and 2 Assault Police following an incident outside the Salford Art Gallery.

PCSO Andy Shaw is sat in The Angel community centre showing us how Twitter is working to keep the people in touch with the police in Salford. But then you'd know that if you'd been plugged into the GMPSalfordEast Twitter account because it's already up there… `Interview with @salfordstar09 this morning. Out on patrol in #trinity and #blackfriars today!'

The real time tool that's being used to promote inanities and footballers' foibles has now been taken up by the Greater Manchester Police as a communication link with the community.

"We've only just started using it in last few weeks we can regularly update the public on what we're doing in the area, police surgeries, any appeals, crimes…anything that's happened in people's neighbourhoods" says Andy "I could say `We've just stopped four lads in Broughton who are known offenders, keep your eyes out for any suspicious activity, give us a ring we are out and about'…

"People can message us too" he adds "They can tell us if they see anything suspicious, or ask us about crime prevention and we can either tell them to ring 872 5050 or go and have a look ourselves . People have asked questions already and it's been working great. We started off with around thirty followers and it's already grown to around 130."

While Andy has been specially trained to be the `voice' of East Salford police on Twitter, the other four neighbourhood police teams in the city are also Twittered up.

To see what's going off on the beat either click here or go to www.twitter.com and search your local police…

THE CHRISTIE FACING £7.5M CUTS AS CANCER PATIENT MADE TO WAIT FOR BED

Star date: 7th December 2016

NO ROOM AT THE HOSPITAL...

"Is that what we're being reduced to? Just die quietly and don't make a fuss? No!" Jean from Langworthy

On Saturday there is a `No room at the hospital' rally in Manchester against NHS cutbacks in Greater Manchester. In the run up, the Salford Star presents a series of articles highlighting the state of the NHS.

We start with a Salfordian cancer patient at The Christie who has experienced cancelled appointments and long waits for treatment because there were no beds. The Christie states that its £7.5million cuts this year won't impact on the quality of care. But this patient's friend says `Enough is enough!'

AS POLL STATES ONLY 18% TRUST NATIONAL PRESS, SALFORD STAR BACKS MEDIA FUND

Star date: 6th December 2016

ALTERNATIVE MEDIA CROWDFUNDING LAUNCHED

Today, a YouGov poll found that only 18% of people trust the national press to tell the truth, unsurprising after some truly disgusting Daily Mail headlines recently.

Now a bunch of alternative national and local media groups, including the Salford Star, have backed The Media Fund, an online, ongoing crowdfunding platform that collects monthly donations, and distributes them to independent and grassroots media.

SALFORD PUB SAVED FOR COMMUNITY BY NORWEGIAN MANCHESTER UNITED FAN

Star date: 5th December 2016

THE `B' HIVE SURVIVES

The `B' Hive pub, off Langley Road South, has been saved for the Whit Lane community by a Norwegian Manchester United fan who loved the place too much to see it fall into the hands of a developer.

The `B' Hive was destined to be converted to student flats or demolished until Ronnie the Norwegian arrived like Ole Gunnar Solskjær in Fergie-time to rescue the much loved boozer.
