Police have arrested a man from Manchester on suspicion of running a series of illegal sports streaming websites.

The man was detained at his home in the North West by the City of London Police’s specialist unit where detectives found evidence of an industrial size streaming operation, including 12 computer servers streaming a wide range of sporting events from across the world, which have since been seized.

The operation was supported by Greater Manchester Police with the suspect being taken to a local police station for questioning.

Today’s operation is the unit’s third arrest in relation to online streaming and sends out a strong message that we are homing in on those who knowingly commit or facilitate online copyright infringement.

“Not only is there a significant loss to industry with this particular operation but it is also unfair that millions of people work hard to be able to afford to pay for their subscription-only TV services when others cheat the system.”

– DCI Danny Medlycott

There are no longer any areas in the North West where housing is 'easily affordable' according to a new report by the TUC.

The research found that 50% of housing in the region costs at least five times the local average salary.

Even previously ‘easily affordable’ areas, such as Bury and Rossendale, are now out of reach for many local people with house prices now over five times the average wage.

Properties in the Ribble Valley are the most unaffordable - house prices there being more than seven and a half times local average earnings.

Schools in the North West are being encouraged by the Environment Agency and Angling Trust to offer pupils the chance to try fishing.

Fishing has proven health, social and educational benefits and can help pupils improve personal skills such as communication, concentration and discipline.

One school in the North West is already leading the way - Smithills School in Bolton has set up its own angling club and has a school team that competes with other clubs at weekends.
