Families in Trafford are campaigning for their council to reinstate the free school bus for their learning disabled children.

Trafford Council withdrew transport funding for 11 children with special educational needs saying it was no longer their duty to pay for people over the age of 16.

Now, the Conservative Council may cancel ALL the buses for disabled children older than 16.

Watch as conman escapes with £40k from Bureau de Change

Police in Manchester have issued CCTV of the moment a conman poses as a Bureau de Change manager in Trafford before stealing £40,000.

It happened at Asda at Trafford Park at 3.45pm on Wednesday 29 July, the man dressed in a smart suit, calmly went into the kiosk and chatted to customers before appearing to take the cash.

An investigation has been launched and a 22-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud. She has been bailed until 21 September.

“I would ask people to take time to look at the CCTV footage and bear in mind that the offender may be using some form of disguise to obscure his appearance. Anyone who may recognise the person in the footage is asked to contact us as soon as possible. The company who owns the kiosk have put forward a reward of £2000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for this crime.”
