A bar worker received a shockingly abusive text message from a fellow member of staff after she handed in her notice

Kiara Claire, eighteen, had been working at The King’s Ransom pub in Sale since May after being furloughed from her old job.

Last week, however, Kiara landed herself a new job, so she sent the pub’s assistant manager a polite text message informing him that she would be leaving.

She wrote: The trial shift has gone amazingly today and they want me to start whenever I can. I will be handing in my notice tomorrow when I come in.

“I can’t thank you and the rest of the team more than enough for giving me a job.”

However, this message didn’t sit too well with her manager, known only as John, who swiftly sent back a lengthy reply.

The message read: “Kiara. My love. It’s my wedding day. I don’t give a toss if you’re employed or not.

“And whilst we’re doing this, as you have had the level of disrespect to message me, with this meaningful nonsense. ON MY WEDDING DAY. I would like to give you some home truths.”

He went on to slam Kiara for having ‘no initiative’, called her a ‘vacuous poser’, said that she is ‘too focused on how you look and not what you do’, and slammed her for being a ‘useless employee.’

He added: “You would rather text than do your job. You should be embarrassed about this. But hear my words. Because they will do you a favour. Nobody is interested in YOU. 

“Your work ethics are the only thing matter. Focus on the job and stop focusing on yourself. Beauty will fade. Dumb b**** is forever.”

Of course, Kiara couldn’t believe that the text message could be genuine, and even thought it was a joke. Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, she explained: “When he messaged me, I thought it was a joke because that’s just my personality, I try not to take things too seriously.

“It was only until the next morning when I reread it that I started to get upset about it because the way it had been set out looked like he was being quite serious about it.”

Kiara admitted that the message was upsetting to read: “I suffer from anxiety and it was quite shocking and upsetting to read. It did make me feel worse, it knocked my confidence.”

She eventually told her mum, Joanne, who swiftly rang the manager to confront him – but he denied having ever sent the message.

Regardless of John insisting that his friends had taken his phone, Kiara’s mum posted screenshots of the message exchange onto social media, where it has since been widely circulated online.

The general manager of The Kings Ransom, known only as Tracy, has since addressed the incident, saying that she is aware and is investigating.

She wrote on Facebook: “As the General Manager of The Kings Ransom, I would like to assure you we take matters like this very serious and the matter is currently being investigated as a matter of urgency.

“I would like to apologise on behalf of The Kings Ransom for any distress caused.”

Woman ‘attacked by dog’ close to where toddler was mauled to death in Rochdale

The woman claims the dog was ‘hanging’ on her arms

Published

A woman has spoken of her experience of being attacked by a dog just yards away from where a toddler was killed in Rochdale.

Three-year-old Daniel John Twigg died in hospital on Sunday May 15th following a ‘devastating’ dog attack in Milnrow, Rochdale.

Officers were called out to a property near Carr Lane at around 1:15pm, where the youngster was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance.

There, he was sadly pronounced dead.

In the wake of Daniel’s death, a young woman has claimed that she too was mauled by a dog while walking on a footpath just yards from where the fatal attack happened.

The woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, told the Manchester Evening News that she was bitten by a Cane Corso – the breed that was confirmed as being involved in Daniel’s death – less than 100 yards from the scene.

She said: “The dog wasn’t on a lead. It was hanging off my arms and tugging at me. It bit me on my side.”

The woman says she was left with horrific injuries to her arms and ribs, and has been left with life-long scars to her arms. 

She reported the incident to the police, but was told that officers would not be visiting the farm if there were ‘dangerous dogs on the loose’.

The woman believes the attack was captured on CCTV, but claims police said there was no evidence of what she was alleging.

She said: “They said there was no proof. I don’t think they ever went up there. They just wouldn’t do anything.

“I asked them if they were going to wait until someone was dead to do something.”

As part of a complex investigation, detectives say they are reviewing ‘other incidents of note’.

Michael Ely / Geograph

In an emotional statement released by GMP, Daniel’s family said he ‘was a happy, kind and caring little boy who was loved by all who knew him’.

The statement read: “He loved Paw Patrol and playing with his brother and sister, he also loved being around animals – especially his pony, Splash. He brought us many laughs and was a comical character. He was brave, intelligent and full of many characteristics.

“Daniel loved being with his whole family and will be missed by all. On behalf of our family, we ask people to respect our privacy.”
