A jihadi, with links to the Manchester Arena bomber, faces years in jail for being a member of so-called Islamic State.

Mohammed Abdallah left his home in Moss Side to go to Syria. IS registration documents, leaked by a defector, listed him as a specialist sniper.

He will be sentenced at the Old Bailey later.

United say no to City's Amazon camera crews

Manchester United have refused a request from title rivals Manchester City to allow filming in the dressing room at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's side have been followed by an Amazon Prime film crew for much of the season for a multi-episode documentary series which is scheduled to be aired next year.

City agreed a reported £10 million deal with Amazon for the behind-the-scenes crew to chart their campaign but the internet broadcaster will have its access restricted in the Manchester derby.

It is understood that United have made the dressing room and players' tunnel off limits due to the demand from media companies from around the world for the hotly-anticipated clash.

TV rights holders of more than 20 crews will be in attendance and, as a result, the Red Devils feel the tunnel will be too busy to accommodate another which is not an official Premier League broadcast partner.

Premier League leaders City, who are eight points above their rivals heading into the weekend, refused to comment when contacted by Press Association Sport.

A man from Manchester claims he's being forced to use a wheelchair which is causing him to have "extreme pain and sores."

Ben Wimbush says Manchester Wheelchair Services aren't providing him with the right equipment, despite his spinal unit confirming he needs a different chair.

A spokesperson for Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust said;

We are very sorry that Mr Wimbush is still having problems with his wheelchair and are working with him to address his concerns. We are taking additional specialist expert advice to ensure that the equipment he has received is safe and appropriate."
