COVID RATES: Manchester and Salford now have a higher rate of infection than Bolton

 

1. Both Salford and Manchester now have a higher rate of infection than Bolton, according to the latest data from Public Health England.

Bolton had been holding the top spot in the city-region and the country, for a number of weeks but cases have recently been declining in the area.

2. Schools in every borough of Greater Manchester have been affected by positive Covid cases since May half term.

Schools are once again having to send pupils home as infection rates continue to rise across the city-region.

According to research from the Manchester Evening News, here is the full list of schools with confirmed cases this half term:

Manchester

  • Abbott Community Primary - (confirmed case in Year 6)

3. A review of evidence collected after the Manchester bomb has produced "new, albeit limited, investigative opportunities" according to police.

No-one has ever been charged over the Provisional IRA attack on 15 June 1996, which left hundreds injured.

Det Ch Supt Dominic Scally said police "remain absolutely committed" to bringing those responsible to justice.

The attack, which saw a device detonated in a lorry parked on Corporation Street outside the Manchester Arndale shopping centre, was the UK mainland’s biggest bomb since World War Two.
