SALFORD FILM ON CORONATION STREET
 

Star date: 22nd March 2010

THE CORRIE HORROR SHOW

Splintered, a new horror film made by Salford based production company Not A Number, is being featured on episodes of Coronation Street this Friday.

Corrie characters, Sian, Sophie, Ryan and Lee, are shown watching the scary movie on DVD and discussing its horrid details as the tension cranks up in the room…

SPLINTERED

Inner demons, beasts, psychopaths and teen terror come to Coronation Street this week as a new feature length horror film not only gets a plug and a preview on the top soap but also forms part of the plot.

"I'm really chuffed Splintered plays a key role in Friday's episode of Coronation Street" says director Simeon Halligan "And what's ironic is that the background to the story in Splintered is very much about coming to terms with your own sexuality. This nicely echoes Corrie's Sophie Webster as she begins to realise her own sexual identity.

"It's also interesting that the lead character in Splintered is also called Sophie - and of course, having worked at Granada TV for many years myself and actually on Corrie itself back in the nineties - it seems fitting Splintered gets a nod on The Street before its UK release in July."

Originally Corrie's people phoned Not A Number seeking any scary film to show, as the Crescent based production company also stages the annual Grimmfest horror film festival. But Not A Number jumped at the chance to preview Splintered to Corrie's nine million or so viewers.

"You have to make the most of every potential plug" explains Splintered's producer Rachel Richardson "It seemed a perfect tie in for us and a great way to give people a little sneak peak."

Starring Stephen Martin Walters (Hannibal Rising) and Holly Weston (Madonna's Filth and Wisdom), and made by the producer of Scum and Half Light, Splintered is released in cinemas in July and will be shown at the Salford Film Festival. The blurb says it features `the mind of a deranged killer in the body of a wild beast' and promises `he'll rip you apart'. Nice family viewing…

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL THREAT LETTER CAUSES ELDERLY CITIZENS ANGUISH

Star date: 22nd October 2018

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.
