<b>Monday 9 November:</b> Morrissey hissy-fit, Owen weds in Scotland and Gay Village to be pedestrianised

Published on November 9th 2009.

MORRISSEY CUTS SHORT GIG AFTER BEING HIT with a missile while performing in front of 8,000 at the Liverpool ECHO Arena on Saturday night. Furious he was hit with the plastic glass, he stormed off stage after only two songs and refused to return, sparking a chorus of boos. Fans are now waiting to see if they will be entitled to a refund for their tickets.

MARK OWEN MARRIED HIS FIANCEE in the Highlands at the weekend. In a ceremony that included his Take That bandmates and Robbie William as guests, the couple had the candlelit marriage as darkness fell over Inverness. The band, rumoured to be reuniting as a group, were expected to sing at the wedding, with Owen posting on the website: "No doubt once the boys have had a few drinks we will get into song."

A DRIVE-FREE ZONE COULD BE CREATED in the gay village after “extremely encouraging” feedback. Areas on Sackville and Bloomfield Streets were closed to traffic on Friday and Saturday evenings as part of a four-week pilot scheme. A study of the changes carried out by Salford University found that 87% of people thought it was a good idea, with the number of crimes also falling.

CORRIE STAR BEING QUIZZED BY POLICE after a car crash in the city centre. Ryan Thomas, who plays Jason Grimshaw, was spoken to by officers after his Chrysler smashed into a lamppost. Another man has been charged with driving while under the influence of drink or drugs.

This ’N’ That wisdom: The only place where success comes before work is in a dictionary.
