CCTV footage showing the last known movements of Stone Roses fan Chris Brahney has been released by police.

The 22-year-old's body was found in the Manchester Ship Canal at Salford Quays 10 days after he went missing following the band's gig at Heaton Park.

The CCTV film shows him walking in Manchester city centre in the early hours of Saturday 30 June.

Officers think he was going to pick up shoes he had bought earlier that day and hidden in Rosenfields car park.

The footage shows him walking from the car park on Thorniley Brow, near to Shudehill Metro link station, to Deansgate,

He was wearing sunglasses on his head.

Mr Brahney had lost his phone at the concert and became separated from friends.

Police later said they believed his phone could be in Edinburgh.

It is thought that prior to travelling into the city centre, he may have used the park-and-ride facility at Bowlee Park, in Heywood Old Road, towards Middleton, shortly before midnight.

Further inquiries suggest he was seen outside the Maccabi Sports Centre on Bury Old Road just after midnight.

Detective Inspector Debbie Oakes said: "Officers are continuing to offer support to Christopher's family, and we are trying to give them the answers they so desperately need.

"The post-mortem examination brought an inconclusive result, but, as is routine, samples have been sent for toxicology tests.

"We do, however, have a number of lines of inquiry that we are vigorously pursuing, including CCTV footage that could help us make more sense of Chris' final movements, information from witnesses following the fantastic public response and other avenues for us to pursue.

"We understand that Chris walked from Shudehill, past a number of pubs, to Deansgate.

"Anyone who saw Chris in Manchester city centre, carrying a Primark bag, is urged to call the police as soon as possible."

  • Bristol Academy extends reach overseas with first foreign students

    With the doors to its brand new £1million training centre officially open, one of the UK's leading apprentice training providers, Bristol based S&B Automotive Academy, is showcasing its world-class facilities by launching a series of foreign student exchanges for the first time in its 41-year history. To get a flavour of what life is like as an apprentice in the UK, the Academy hosted 16 apprentice engineers and bus drivers from the G9 Automotive College in Hamburg, Germany, as part of a Europe-wide vocational training initiative called the ‘Leonardo Programme’ with support from the European Social Fund. In a reciprocal arrangement, S&B will be sending nine apprentices to Germany during February 2012 so that they can get an appreciation of life in the automotive industry on the Continent. A further three German exchange groups are being planned for next year. Designed to assist the development of vocational skills and training across Europe, including work placements for trainees, the Leonardo Programme has a budget of €1.75bn, which is helping to encourage UK organisations to work with their counterparts abroad. In what is expected to be another challenging year for employers in the UK automotive sector, S&B’s Chief Executive, Jon Winter, claims that the exchange initiative will bring many benefits to the Academy and its apprentices: “In a world of global automotive brands, it’s important for our learners to understand the international context of the industry they have chosen to make their career. This new exchange programme will enable apprentices and Academy staff alike to achieve a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities within the automotive arena in Europe. With the Academy’s influence also extending to the USA and Asia, there’s every possibility that this initiative could move further afield in the future.” Continued Winter: “The need for skilled technicians across the world is on the increase and we actively encourage our apprentices to look at broader horizons during their training. Many of them have already learned the phrase ‘Vorsprung durch Gelehrtheit’, quite simply, ‘Advancement through learning.” In the 2010/11 academic year, S&B doubled the number of successful Apprenticeships over the previous year with some 350 apprentices graduating from the Academy. At the same time, achievement levels reached an all-time high with an overall success rate of 85%. For those learners on the Advanced Apprenticeship three-year programme, success rates were even higher, at over 98%.
