Manchester City ‘target of massacre’
Eastlands massacre threat
A teenager on trial for allegedly plotting a pipe bomb and gun massacre at his school in Manchester was also considering an attack on Manchester City, a court has heard.
Matthew Swift, aged 18, reportedly sent the suggestion in a computer message to co-defendant Ross Wilkinson. A jury at Manchester Crown Court was told that Swift wrote: “I was thinking of targets to attack – like the City stadium.”
The pair are accused of a planned attack on Audenshaw High School timed to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Columbine massacre. Both deny conspiracy to murder and to cause explosions.
The trial continues.
