When former Liberal MP and businessman Richard Peacock donated the Red Rec at Taylor Street for local people to play on for 100 years, little did he know that within days of that covenant ending Manchester's Labour bosses would be looking to sell this valuable open space for yet more housing.

Jackie Pearcey helped get equipment on the area to provide a breakout space for local youths on the Hampden Estate.

Jackie told us "This area is designated by this council as being a local park, it is not as if there is no other land in Gorton and Abbey Hey to build on, but once again Labour are going for the easy hit selling off valuable open public space."
