A large site has been put up for sale around the Atlas Works near Elbow Street and Chapel Street in Levenshulme.
This site is part of the land that had previously been subject to a major redevelopment project and is being sold with planning permission. However, this site does not encompass all of the previous development site which may jeopardise the previous plans. The 1.8 acre site is being offered for sale at “around £750,000”.
The site advertisement is available HERE.
Police are appealing for information after a series of robberies in Levenshulme.
Since 10 January 2014 there have been several robberies where the offenders at first engage in casual conversation and ask for the time before stealing mobile phones.
In each incident the offenders are described as being of Eastern European appearance.
Detective Sergeant Scott Halsall from Didsbury Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “At this stage we are looking at the potential that a number of robberies are linked and have been carried out by the same group of men. We have extra patrols in the area but would ask the public to report anything suspicious to police.
“As the popularity of smart phones increase so too do the number of offences. We would urge the public to remain vigilant and keep mobile phones out of sight and don’t advertise them to would-be thieves.”
Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 4423 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Police are also urging residents to make a note of their IMEI number which they will now need to report a phone as stolen. To find this out, key *#06# into the phone’s keypad.
