<b>Friday 5 September:</b> Liverpool papers move to Manchester plus weekend ring road rage

Published on September 5th 2008.

LIVERPOOL PAPERS, the Daily Post and the Liverpool Echo, are moving production out of Liverpool to Greater Manchester. Printing is to be carried out at Trinity Mirror's site in Oldham. Reports suggest that 100 jobs will be affected in the move and redundancies are likely. The transfer is set to be completed in the next 15 months.

MANCUNIAN WAY will be disrupted by road works this weekend. Diversions will be in place on Fairfield Street, Whitworth Street West, Deansgate and Liverpool Road from 7pm on Friday until 6am on Monday. Engineers are making repairs to damaged sections of the Mancunian Way and its central reservation barriers. Roads on southern approaches to the city centre will be busier than usual and drivers are urged to allow additional time for journeys.

THE CHOIR, a new six part BBC drama starring Sarah Lancashire, is being filmed in and around Manchester. Filming began last month for the uplifting musical drama. In a statement, Kate Harwood, BBC Head of Series and Serials, said: “As the characters' individual stories unfold it's the power of music that holds them together. We're delighted to be bringing such an original drama to BBC audiences, and hope to have them singing along.”

FANS traveling to Spain for the England 2010 World Cup qualifier are to be monitored by police at Manchester Airport. Plain clothes and uniformed officers will be enforcing football banning orders on any troublemakers. Well known football hooligans have already been sent out subject to banning order letters.
