ABBEY HULTON: More than 30 jobs will be created if a pizza delivery firm wins approval to open a new branch.
Domino's Pizza wants to open a facility at the former Kwik Save site in Leek Road, Abbey Hulton.
The one-time supermarket was cleared in June last year and two units were built in its place.
Now Domino's has applied to Stoke-on-Trent City Council for a change of use as the site was originally designated for retail.
If approved, the takeaway would be open seven-days-a-week. The national firm has applied to open from 9am until 11pm, Monday to Saturday, and 10am until 11pm on Sundays.
A report into the application says: "The nature of the product and style of the operation reduces the visits to the unit, so that any perceived nuisance to local residents is seen to be minimal when a unit is operating."
HANFORD: Firefighters carried out a rescue operation to save a horse that was stuck in a stream.
Crews from Longton fire station, along with an animal rescue unit from Leek, were called to Primrose Hill, in the Hanford area, by the RSPCA.
The charity had been alerted when the animal became stuck in the stream, which was at the bottom of a steep embankment.
Firefighters rescued the horse within an hour of the call, which they received at 11.20am on Saturday.
ABBEY HULTON: Four people were taken to hospital after the car they were travelling in overturned.
The emergency services were called to the incident in Abbey Lane, near to Hanley Town Football Club, at 11.30am yesterday.
They found a grey Alfa Romeo on its roof. Four occupants from the vehicle were taken to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire with minor injuries and were later sent home.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact PC Nathan Ames on 101.
