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…

Full story here…

@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…

SALFORD COUNCIL TO LOSE ANOTHER £1MILLION DEVELOPER FEES AT BLACK FRIARS PUB

Star date: 2nd March 2015

PETER DONE COMPANY TO AVOID £1.2MILLION PLANNING FEES – AND WON'T EVEN PAY FOR A BUS STOP

A company part owned by Fred Done's brother, Peter, has a planning application going to Salford Council this week, to put up two horrendous blocks of apartments by the Black Friars pub in Trinity. Done's company, FICM, should be paying over £1.2million in planning fees plus providing 76 affordable properties but is set to avoid the payments due to `viability' issues.

Transport for Greater Manchester requested that the developer should at least provide two new bus stops on Blackfriars Road – but Done's company, apparently, can't even afford that. The Done brothers' wealth is estimated at around £700million.

THE END OF THE `NATIONAL' HEALTH SERVICE?

"This deal smells beyond dodgy and beyond folly..." GM Referendum Campaign

Following reports of a deal to devolve £6billion of health and social care funding to Greater Manchester, in Salford there's been almost a deafening silence from the city's civic leaders.

Elsewhere, the deal, which could take the `National' out of the NHS, has been discussed in detail. Here, the Salford Star looks at the reactions.
