Manchester news blog Inside the M60- nominated at last year’s Manchester Blog Awards- is a great place for all the latest city-based info. As well as the site, which “aims to report on the issues of concern to the general population of the city,” the organisers maintain a daily newsletter providing links to online articles about Manchester.
