Good evening. Two men have been arrested on
suspicion of the armed robbery of a betting shop in Denton this morning.

A Manchester MP has urged the Christie Hospital in Manchester to
focus on patients following the resignation of its chairman. Lord
Keith Bradley said he'll leave once a replacement is found for the
cancer hospital. His decision follows the suspension late last

the new chairman needs to resolve its problems quickly.
Over 1000 people in Liverpool today queued for the first glimpse inside
the newly renovated headquarters of the White Star Line, the company
that owned the Titanic. The Grade two`listed building at 30 James
Street is currently being transformed into a hotel and
apartments. Trudi Barber was there. Hundreds snaked around the corner to
look inside the converted building that's been empty for over 30 years
until a multi million pounds investment plan to restore it to its
former glory. It is quite inspiring. It is impressive. It is a shame it
has been empty. It's expected to be finished by April, but its new
owners were overwhelmed by the interest in its heritage. Liverpool
has been an amazing city. This is one of the buildings that make
people feel this way. Some even travelled from Belfast where the
Titanic was built, before it hit an iceberg and sank in 1912, killing
over 1500 people woman. My grandfather was a carpenter who
worked on it on the construction of the Titanic. To see it now is a
wonderful. The world famous Whitestar line building will soon be
proudly welcoming thousands again. This event saw some of the biggest
names. And other coming north western band will play. I think it
will be a surreal experience. It is always lovely to play Manchester and
see familiar faces. Sale Sharks beat London wasps 22`7.
It promises to be a special weekend for four year old George Johnson
from Wallasey. George will be mascot at this weekend's Capital One Cup
final ` for Sunderland not Manchester City. Stuart Pollitt
explains. Despite the smile, George hasn't had
much luck in his short life. But for Sunderland Football Club he is
proving to be a lucky charm. The four`year`old has had 75 operations,
as doctors try to uncover his mystery digestive condition. We
ended up down at Great Ormond in London, which should have been for
eight days and he's ended up being there the majority of his life. His
equivalent of his tea is a bag of vitamins or a bag of fats. George
has to be fed through his heart every night. His family are trying
to raise thousands of pounds to go to America for treatment. He can
wake up one morning and have something planned for the day and
can be in hospital, or an ambulance, or not come back from Great Ormond
Street for eight months. George s dad supports Sunderland, his mum
Everton. George was a mascot at the game between the two on Boxing Day.
Sunderland won and he was mascot again when they beat Manchester
United to reach Wembley. So the team has kept faith with George. When you
are mascot they seem to win, don't they? Lucky mascot. Yes. All the
other teams want me to support them. The other teams want you to support
them so they win? Yes. And whether Sunderland win or lose tomorrow
nobody deserves to walk out at Wembley more than George.
Here's Mel Coles with the weather. Good evening. After a pleasant
springlike day, we're going to see the cloud increase this evening
There will be one or two showers and rain will push its way in. It may
turn wintry through northern part of the Pennines. As it clears, there
will be the risk of some ice, but on the whole temperatures not dropping
far, with lows of around four or five Celsius. Tomorrow gets off to
quite a dull start. Plenty of cloud around, some drizzle, some showers
as well. Then the main band of rain starts to sweep in from the west,
accompanied by strong winds, and tomorrow will feel quite fresh.
That is it from me. I will be back with more news.
Hello. For some of us, it was quite a decent state, some sunshine
around, but not the case right now in Northern Ireland and parts of
Scotland, chilly with some rain as
