The Nifty 250: News of the day in so many words

<b>Tues Nov 10:</b> Lottery winners go public, alcohol sales to go on, and and ready, steady, go for Wavertree seat

Published on November 10th 2009.

NORTH LIVERPOOL'S fortunes are vital to the future economic success of the city, a council inquiry into unemployment has found. It has recommended that Liverpool and Sefton councils and other agencies commission a future development of the area, which includes Anfield, Everton, Walton, and Kirkdale. The inquiry, led by Cllr Beatrice Fraenkel, found that, “North Liverpool is the key to the future of our city…the unrealised potential of the people and spaces of north Liverpool is just waiting to be activated.”

LIVERPOOL WORKERS ARRIVING AT WORK to discover they had scooped £45.5m on the Euromillions will go public today. Some of the group turned up at their Wood Street offices not knowing they were in line for a £6.4m windfall each, with Lottery operator Camelot confirming all the staff work for IT firm Hewlett Packard and are based in BT’s Royal House.

AN MP’S RESIGNATION HAS SPARKEDM speculation that there will be a race for her job from senior Labour councillors. Wavertree MP, Jane Kennedy, announced yesterday she will stand down at the general election after 17 years. Outsider contenders include Luciana Berger, but in Liverpool it is thought opposition leader Joe Anderson and his deputy Paul Brant will throw their hats in the ring for the coveted parliamentary candidacy.

THE ECHO ARENA has said it will not stop selling alcohol at its shows after singer Morrissey halted his show on Saturday night after being hit with a plastic container of beer during his second song. Attempts are being made to single out the culprit and police are going through CCTV of the incident.

Worried BadlyNovember 10th 2009.

Regarding the numerous problems, relating to the crowd behaviour and complaints associated with the selling of alcoholic drinks, at the Oldham Arena. Under Public Order requirements which cover football games, theatre performances and associted venues all enforced rigidly with the full force of all the agencies involved. There appears a great reluctance from the Liverpool City Council, also its licensing authority to involve in serving any form of notice. In any attempt to address problems by ammending or the threat to withdraw, the license on Health and Safety, Public Order requirements at this venue. Remember the Matthew St, debacle, the cancellation on Public Safety issues was given as a prime reason and a concern by the Council. Maybe the concession for the provision of alcoholic refreshments etc, at the Arena, possibly has something to do with this, I ask the question how was the concession negotiated and to whom was it gifted!!
