As part of their renewed appeal to find Steve, police have issued an updated image of how Steven might look now, at the age of 30.

“Someone out there must have some information about Steven in relation to his disappearance, his whereabouts or his movements since 2005 - and we are urging them to come forward and speak to us.

"At a time of year when many Brits are heading abroad we are asking holidaymakers to keep their eyes peeled and to let us know of any potential sightings of Steven – or any information, which could assist in the search for him.”

David De Gea's proposed transfer from Manchester United to Real Madrid collapsed as time ran out on Monday night.

The necessary paperwork was not lodged before the Spanish league deadline and United are understood to blame their Madrid counterparts.

Confirmation that two of the world's biggest clubs could not settle the deal led to much mirth on Twitter.

Here is a selection of reaction to the deal going belly up:

Spanish newspaper AS: "Now we are hearing that United did send the documents on time but in a format that couldn't be opened at the LFP. Windows 95?"

Footballer-turned-pundit Mark Bright responds to AS: "I mean, you can't make this stuff up....."

The Mancunian Way reopens in the centre of Manchester this morning, two weeks after a sinkhole forced its closure.

Engineers worked round the clock over the bank holiday to repair the road, which was damaged when the hole appeared after flooding. The city council say a contraflow, and speed restrictions, will allow traffic to return to the route.
