The bike-sharing operator Mobike is pulling out of Manchester this week because of “unsustainable” losses from theft and vandalism – the first time the Chinese firm has abandoned a city because of antisocial behaviour.
“Tens of thousands” of customers in the city should have their deposits and credit refunded in the next few days, the company said on Wednesday. It has already started removing the silver and orange bicycles and will transfer them to London, Oxford, Cambridge and Newcastle, where it will continue to operate.

The Argus really is a gooseberry fool paper. There's been a number of times I've seen them print the same article twice on that day's edition of the paper. There was an article in there the other day that ended part way through a quote.
Spying On My Family: Chelmsford family horrified after cameras find sons viewing 'soft porn' in new TV show
A Chelmsford police officer who opened his doors to TV cameras to spy on his family was horrified after discovering his two sons watching “soft porn”.
Rob Kirk, his wife Donna, both 37, and their four children- Chloe, now 18, Ryan, 14, George, 11 and Poppy, nine, from Sixth Avenue, took part in an intrusive social experiment for the upcoming Channel 4 show ‘Spying On My Family.’
The program followed every move of the Kirk family for a whole week, whose phones and internet usage were also monitored.
