Angry Man United fans vandalise Ed Woodward’s house

Manchester United’s fans have always been pro-active when it comes to the ownership of the club.

Twenty-one years ago, the Shareholders United group played a key role in helping to block Rupert Murdoch’s proposed takeover at Old Trafford.

And in 2005, following the Glazer buy-out of United, that organisation became the Manchester United Supporters Trust, an industrial and provident society with over 200,000 paying members that continues to fight for fans’ rights and is recognised by the club despite it’s continued opposition to the Americans’ ownership.

Tuesday night’s attack on the home of executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward suggests that the more militant members of United’s support now believe that direct action is required to remove Old Trafford’s controversial owners.

But it is not a new development. There has always been a group of angry young men lurking in the shadows.

The Manchester Education Committee and the sinister splinter group the Men in Black are two elements of United’s support that first emerged when the Glazers were plotting their controversial leveraged buy-out of the club in the early 2000s.

The MEC first hit the headlines in February 2004 when a group of fans disrupted a race meeting at Hereford after manager Sir Alex Ferguson had become embroiled in a legal row with JP McManus and John Magnier over the ownership of champion racehorse Rock of Gibraltar.

The Coolmore stud in Ireland, owned by McManus and Magnier, was then vandalised.

Eight months later, the MEC issued a statement of intent after fans invaded the pitch during a reserve-team game at Altrincham’s Moss Lane ground in a bid to “punish” United’s in-house TV station for offering a media platform to Florida-based businessman Malcolm Glazer.

Dubbed ‘Operation Havana’, the publicity stunt came with a warning that the MEC were about to bring “civil war” to Old Trafford and that the club’s sponsors and commercial partners would be viewed as “legitimate targets.”

In early 2005, with the Glazer takeover now looking inevitable, another statement was released warning chief executive David Gill that supporting the leveraged buy-out would be viewed as “an act of treachery that will place board members in an extremely vulnerable position for years to come.”

It came with a chilling warning to Joel Glazer that he would not be able to employ a security staff big enough to keep him safe.

When the Glazers completed their takeover that May, the debt-free club was instantly plunged £700million into the red.

One influential group of supporters turned their backs on Old Trafford to form the rebel club FC United of Manchester.

Others stayed to continue the fight.

A people carrier transporting three of the Glazer brothers to Old Trafford was attacked outside the stadium later that summer.

That prompted Joel Glazer to break the family’s silence for the first and only time to tell MUTV viewers that they could be trusted to run the club properly and maintain United’s success on the pitch.

Over the next eight years, Ferguson’s brilliance as a manager delivered another five Premier League titles and the Champions League.

But fan protests continued as the Glazers began plundering £1.3billion from the Old Trafford coffers to meet debt repayments and pay themselves dividends.

A Green and Gold campaign was launched by MUST, urging supporters to stop buying official club merchandise and instead wear the colours of United’s founding fathers from Newton Heath.

But more aggressive elements began to re-emerge after rivals Manchester City were bought by Sheikh Mansour and it became clear that the Blues were about to become a force in the Premier League.

In 2008, Rio Ferdinand was confronted at his Cheshire mansion by a balaclava-wearing group calling themselves the Men in Black.

The England defender was stalling on a new contract and the MiB were intent on reminding him how the club continued to pay his wages after he had been suspended by the FA for eight months after missing a drug test.

Ferdinand agreed to talk to the group if they removed their balaclavas – and although worried neighbours called the local police, the evening ended peacefully.

Police arrest man for operating funeral service from home and remove coffins from property

A man has been arrested at a house in Blackley, Greater Manchester as neighbours witnessed police removing a number of coffins from the property.

Officers were called to Capricorn Road on Friday night to reports of suspicious circumstances.

A man in his 50s was arrested on suspicion of fraud and remains in custody for questioning.

A funeral service business which is registered to the house is listed online.

Police have not released any further details about the nature of the investigation.

Neighbours reported seeing a number of coffins being removed from the property and placed inside a private ambulance.

Footage seen by the Manchester Evening News shows two coffins being wheeled from the house on Saturday lunch time.

On Saturday night, a police car guarded the front of the property while detectives continued their enquiries.

A number of plain clothed officers were seen searching the house throughout the afternoon.

A funeral hearse can be seen in the driveway covered partly by tarpaulin.

Local residents say a private ambulance parked outside the house was taken away by police.

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police said: “Police were called at 8.45pm on Friday evening to reports of suspicious circumstances.

“Officers attended and arrested a man in his 50s on suspicion of fraud.

“He remains in police custody.

“A cordon is still in place.”

New Year Eve warning by UK police

Police are warning people not to attend New Year celebrations on the River Thames in London without a ticket, as the UK prepares to usher in 2020.

More than 100,000 tickets have been bought for Tuesday night’s sold-out fireworks display.

The Metropolitan Police urged those without tickets to watch from home or attend other events in the city.

Firework shows are also to be held in cities including Manchester, Cardiff, Newcastle, Inverness and Nottingham.

And in Edinburgh, the streets of Edinburgh are filling up as an estimated 100,000 Hogmanay revellers prepare to welcome in the start of a new decade.

Celebrations began on Monday evening with thousands taking part in a pre-Hogmanay torchlight procession.

In a statement to those visiting London for the celebrations, the Met said it wanted “everyone who comes to London for New Year’s Eve to have a good time”.

However, referencing the fireworks on the Thames, the force added: “If visitors do not have a ticket, entry will not be permitted to the event, so the advice from the Met is to watch the fireworks from the comfort of your home.”

Miraculous escape as car crashes into house and catches fire

Three people have suffered serious injuries after the car they were travelling in crashed into a house and caught fire.

The incident on the Isle of Lewis happened on the A857, after the junction with the A858, known as Barvas Corner, at about 01:30.

Car crashed into house

Three men in the car, aged 22, 32 and 36, and a 61-year-old woman who was in the house were rescued by police.

A 32-year-old man was arrested in connection with road traffic offences. Sgt Donald Sinclair, of Police Scotland, said: “Our inquiries into the circumstances of the crash are ongoing and I am appealing for anyone who saw the crash or who saw a blue Vauxhall Zafira being driven on the A857 before 1.30am to come forward.

The car ended up standing upright on its bonnet, leaning against the house.

The driver and two passengers of the blue Vauxhall Zafira were taken to Western Isles Hospital for treatment to serious injuries.

Court rules police ban on Extinction Rebellion protest is unlawful

A police ban on Extinction Rebellion protests in London last month was unlawful, High Court judges have ruled.

The Metropolitan Police imposed the ban, which prevented two or more people from the group taking part in protests, under the Public Order Act.

But judges have ruled that police had no power to do this because the law did not cover “separate assemblies”.

Activists say the police could now face claims for false imprisonment from “potentially hundreds” of protesters.

The Met said it would “carefully consider” the ruling.

The protests cost £24m to police and led to 1,828 arrests, with 165 people charged with offences, the Met says.

During the court hearing, the force had argued that the ban was the only way to tackle widespread disruption.

Announcing their judgement, however, Lord Justice Dingemans and Mr Justice Chamberlain ruled in favour of Extinction Rebellion.

Lord Justice Dingemans said: “Separate gatherings, separated both in time and by many miles, even if co-ordinated under the umbrella of one body, are not a public assembly within the meaning of the public order Act.

“The XR [Extinction Rebellion] autumn uprising intended to be held from October 14 to 19 was not therefore a public assembly… therefore the decision to impose the condition was unlawful because there was no power to impose it under public order Act.”

The judges noted that there are powers within that act which may be used lawfully to “control future protests which are deliberately designed to ‘take police resources to breaking point”‘.
