An excited passerby snapped a picture of a £7,000 glass-top table at an exclusive Manchester furniture store with a label saying 'Rooney.' The picture set tongues wagging that is was due for delivery at the new £20million Cheshire mansion where Wayne Rooney, his wife Coleen, and their children are moving into.

It suggests the table has already been purchased and will be ready for delivery in December. But the mystery was solved by the store, who confirmed the ornate table was not purchased by the ex-Manchester United star or his wife, but by a different customer who happened to also be called Rooney.

There have been better days for a spot of fishing – and more scenic locations, too. But as the rain falls on a grey, autumnal morning, I find myself huddled beneath the roar of the A20 flyover in an unlovely corner of Maidstone, Kent, looking out at the nearby Travelodge, a drive-through McDonald’s, the back of the local crown court – and the impenetrable murk of the River Medway. There’s a gentle splash as my companion, Gareth Bryer, throws his line into the water and gently pulls it taut. Almost immediately, he gets a ‘bite’ and we both hold our breath as he teases his makeshift apparatus out of the water to reveal our catch: a spark plug, rusty nails and a 5p coin. Gareth Bryer with a home-made knife he pulled out of the River Medway. The 36-year-old Army engineer from Manchester is a fan of magnet fishing, the newest and fastest-growing form of angling in Britain Gareth holds the MAC-10 gun scooped from Enfield Lock in North … [Read more...] about Machine guns, crossbows, knives and even BOMBS: How the delightfully eccentric craze of ‘magnet fishing’ is now dredging up chilling proof of violent Britain

A rail boss got a hefty pay rise after commuters on his lines were plunged into chaos by delays. Arriva Trains increased managing director Chris Burchell’s salary from £298,000 to £311,000 for the year to December 2018. But months earlier 165 Northern Rail services were axed as an “interim” timetable kicked in. It left thousands of passengers stranded in areas including Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool and the Lake District. Tonight Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham slammed Mr Burchell’s pay award, saying: “This news will stick in the throats of long-suffering Northern passengers and shows our rail industry is in dire need of radical reform. “Bosses should take a pay cut, not line their pockets. Government action on Northern is as overdue as one of their trains. "We call on the Transport Secretary to remove Northern’s franchise and the Government to deliver the power and funding to honour the PM’s promise of devolved local … [Read more...] about Huge pay rise of Northern Rail boss as thousands of passengers plunged into chaos
Paddy McGuiness has told wife Christine he does not want to share the spotlight on her TV breakthrough. The former model had hoped the Take Me Out host, whose catchphrase is “no likey, no lighty”, would appear with her in The Real Housewives of Cheshire. But despite them reportedly patching up their marriage following last month’s Nicole Appleton row, he said he would rather support her from behind the scenes.
