Breaking News ! We're already past the half way point in November and it's been busy in Greater Manchester's courts. People have been locked up for all manner of  criminal offences  with M.E.N. reporters there to cover the most serious. There was the 'Iceman' Mark Fellows who was handed another life sentence for gangland attack before he murdered Salford's 'Mr Big' Paul Massey. Then there was the 'dangerous, destructive, violent, foul-mouthed, racist menace' who made her neighbours' lives a misery. Despite the coronavirus outbreak, and lockdown restrictions, people are still being locked up for their offences. Here are some of the criminals locked up in Greater Manchester since the start of the month. The McColls shoplifter who went back with a MACHETE - and laughed as he fled with £300 Cade Higson Laughing robbers wielding a machete and a knife struck at a convenience store. One of them was recognised by staff as a shoplifter who had previously stolen items from McColls in Walkden, Salford on a number of occasions. Cade Higson, 21, was later picked out in an identity parade by a shop worker. Manchester Crown Court heard that Higson and the other unidentified robber went into the store on Walkden Road at about 8pm on January 7 last year. Higson did not have his face covered at first, but the other man did. They left but returned a few minutes later, with Higson's face now covered. Both jumped over the counter, Higson wielding a machete and the other with a knife, demanding that staff open the till. About £300 was stolen. But as he climbed over the counter, Higson's mask slipped and his face was visible. Higson was prosecuted after being identified. He has since served a three year jail sentence, for drug dealing. Judge Cross jailed Higson for two years. He said ordinarily the sentence would have been 'considerably longer', but there were a number of 'extremely unusual circumstances' in the case which meant it could be reduced. Higson, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to robbery and possession of a bladed article.

Damian Williams, 50, was spared initially spared jail after being snared by a group called Children's Warriors. He was hauled before the courts and ordered to comply with a sexual harm prevention order. But Williams was caught by Children's Warriors again, when he believed he was sending sexualised messages to a 14-year-old girl. The account was a decoy set up by the group. Now Williams, from Crumpsall, has been jailed for eight months. He had received a three year community order in 2018 for 'almost identical' offences following a hearing at Bolton Crown Court. But in October Williams sent messages on the internet to someone he believed was a 14-year-old girl. He invited the girl out for a drink, suggesting she could 'bunk off school', prosecutor Katie Jones said. Williams, of Eadington Street, Crumpsall, pleaded guilty to breaching a sexual harm prevention order and attempting to communicate with a child for sexual gratification.

Janette Higginson was branded a 'dangerous, destructive, violent, foul-mouthed, racist menace' by a judge as she was locked up. A court heard the 57-year-old subjected her neighbours on Henley Avenue, Stretford, to years of abuse. Three sets of neighbours were forced to get restraining orders against her. In June, Higginson set fire to her semi-detached house in a bid to seek revenge on her husband - the day a letter about their divorce came through. Judge John Potter said her life had descended into 'crisis and chaos' due to her alcohol dependency, but that only she was responsible for her 'dreadful behaviour'. He jailed her for 34 months at Minshull Street Crown Court. Higginson pleaded guilty to arson being reckless as to whether life was endangered; racially/religiously aggravated intentionally harassment; and breach of a restraining order. She was jailed for 34 months and the restraining order in place against her neighbours was reimposed for another eight years.

Munther Alothman and Abdirahman Mohamed, both 18, were part of a gang which targeted multiple people in and around Bolton town centre between November 2019 and April of this year. Victims were forced to hand over cash, bank cards and other possessions, while one was told he would be stabbed unless he drove the gang to a petrol station. After taking them to a Shell garage off the A666, the college student managed to escape and hid inside the garage until police arrived. In another incident, a victim was stabbed several times in the leg after trying to resist an attack. A judge sentenced Alothman to serve seven-and-a-half years, and Mohamed to serve three years and nine months, in a young offender insitution. Alothman, of Waggon Road, Breightmet, was arrested again by police and pleaded guilty to nine counts of robbery, one count of attempted robbery, nine counts of possessing a bladed article, one of fraud and one of perverting the course of justice. Mohamed, of Aylesford Walk, Halliwell, pleaded guilty to two counts of robbery and one of fraud.

Fellows, 40, who is already serving a whole life term, was given another life sentence today (Friday) after being convicted in relation to brutal attack on Aaron Williams, an associate of Salford's A Team gang. Aaron Parkin, who the judge said played a 'critical' role in plots to attack Williams and another A Teamer, Abdul Rahman Khan, was jailed for 14 years. He was responsible for trackers placed on Khan and Williams' cars prior to the attacks. Judge Sir Peter Openshaw said Fellows is 'obviously' dangerous and handed him another life sentence, which will run alongside the previous sentence he received for the murders of Paul Massey and Merseyside gangster John Kinsella. Fellows was not physically present in court for the hearing, and he remained on videolink from HMP Wakefield as he did during the six week trial at Manchester Crown Court. Jurors found three men not guilty of being involved in the attacks on Williams and Khan, both described as associates of Massey and Stephen Britton, said to be the leader of the A Team. Jamie Rothwell, 33, Liam Gee, 31, and Warren Barnes, 32, were acquitted of conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm with intent. Parkin had previously admitted two counts of conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm with intent in relation to both attacks. Fellows was acquitted on counts of conspiracy to murder, but convicted of one count of conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm with intent in relation to the attack on Williams. Nick Johnson QC, for Fellows, argued it would be 'disproportionate' for the defendant to receive a life sentence. But Sir Peter sentenced Fellows to life in prison, to serve a minimum of 10 years and eight months.

. The sentencing came after a third trial into gangland feuding in Salford.

Hussain was convicted of having a blade in a public place and handed a suspended prison sentence. But just five months later, the 27-year-old was taken down by armed police after waving a fake gun in the air in the street. He has now been jailed for eight months at Minshull Street Crown after a judge said he had 'not learnt his lesson'. Hussain, of South Hill Street, Oldham, pleaded guilty to possessing an imitation firearm in a public place and breach of a suspended sentence.

A black pistol, which was loaded with a magazine, was found wrapped in black plastic in the garden. Nearby was a rusted silver revolver found within a black bag inside a backpack. McNamara was arrested at the scene and admitted to stashing the weapons, before refusing to speak to police further about where he acquired them or who for. McNamara, of Bankfield Drive, Oldham, was today sentenced to six years in prison at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court.

Craig Mossop's Land Rover had mounted the pavement on all four wheels just seconds before ploughing into Susan Jackson at more than 50mph. He then left her for dead as he continued driving the vehicle, which had faulty brakes, for another 400 metres before crashing into another pedestrian. The 51-year-old, who was unlicensed and uninsured, was jailed for nine years at Bolton Crown Court on November 16. Sentencing Mossop, Judge Martin Walsh criticised his 'prolonged, persistent and deliberate course of very bad driving'. Judge Walsh told Mossop, of Hartington Road, Bolton, that 'no sentence that a court can impose could reflect the value of the life that was lost and damaged by his conduct'. Ms Jackson, 50, had just been for a run when she was on the way to meet her husband at the David Lloyd gym in Chorley Street, Bolton, on the afternoon of August 23. But as she crossed the road outside the club, she was struck by Mossop's Land Rover. The impact of the crash saw Ms Jackson flung 30 metres into a wall on the opposite side of the road. She suffered 'multiple injuries' and died almost immediately. Mossop, who has 17 previous convictions for 37 offences including a number which are driving-related, has since admitted causing death by dangerous driving; causing serious injury by dangerous driving; and driving a vehicle while over the alcohol limit. He also pleaded guilty to driving without a licence or insurance. As well as being jailed, Mossop was also disqualified from diving for 14 years and must take an extended test before getting behind the wheel again.

He had been out washing his Mercedes C200 at his home in Chadderton, Oldham, when a man asked whether he was interested in selling the vehicle. Later he returned with two other men, at about 7pm on January 23, and told him he was interested in buying the Mercedes and wanted to take a test drive. After driving for about 10 minutes, Michael Daly, the front seat passenger, produced a knife and put it to the victim's throat. Daly, 22, demanded he handed over his wallet and phone. After refusing to reveal the PIN number to his phone, another unidentified man sat in the back of the car headbutted him three times. The victim was pushed out of the car and watched on as it sped off. Minutes later, his bank cards were used by Daly to buy a bottle of vodka and cigarettes. The driver of the car hasn't been identified. Another man, Patrick Daly, was in the car with two women who were not prosecuted. Now Michael Daly has been jailed for five-and-a-half years. Patrick Daly, 39, of no fixed address, was sentenced to three months for aggravated vehicle taking. Michael Daly, of Sandyhill Road, Blackley, admitted robbery, possession of a bladed article, fraud, handling stolen goods, dangerous driving and drink driving. He was also banned from driving for almost five years.

The unsuspecting victim drove him to Peel Street where he asked her to pull over, police said. He then grabbed her handbag from the back of the car. The woman tried to grab it back before Parkinson, from Dukinfield, pulled out a large knife and held it to her throat. He fled the vehicle with the bag and used the woman's bank card to make multiple purchases, including for alcohol and bunches of flowers. Three day after the incident - which happened at around 2pm on Sunday, September 6 - local officers arrested Parkinson. He was charged and pleaded guilty to robbery, possession of a bladed article and three counts of fraud by false representation.
