The weather forecast from the previous evening had promised clear skies, but I awoke at 5.25am to the sound of rain tapping against my window and distant police sirens. Out on the street the first person I saw was a thick set man, in ill-fitting tracksuit trousers and a luminous cagoule. He was maybe in his late fifties and had an unhappy, flat face, like a cartoon burglar. He was jogging like someone who knew he had to run from the scene of a crime, but was really to old for a life of wrongdoing and was ready to be caught.
I walked up Great Ancoats street towards the Piccadilly Basin. A lot of Manchester’s heritage has been cleaned away from here, leaving expectant empty spaces and views back into the city centre. On the way home I passed a chic, young woman standing in the cold with an absolute stillness, waiting for a lift to take her to somewhere else.
