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

<b>Wednesday 19 August:</b> Double bomb attack, post strike continues and teens rescued from estuary

Published on August 19th 2009.

POLICE ARE INVESTIGATING two petrol bomb attacks in two days on the same house. A petrol bomb was thrown at the front door of the house in Stonecrop, near Calderstones Park, on Sunday night. On Monday night police were called again when a petrol bomb was thrown at the front window. No one was injured in the attacks. The area around the house has been cordoned off for forensic investigations.

FOUR TEENAGERS WERE RESCUED yesterday after becoming trapped by the tide in a Mersey estuary. The group, who had been out swimming, were stranded on the rocks by Harrison Drive in New Brighton on Monday night, and were only rescued after a passer-by spotted them. A RNLI New Brighton crewmember said, “They were certainly in a very dangerous situation and have all learned a very valuable lesson”.

AN UNOFFICIAL POSTAL STRIKE continues to affect thousands of Wiral residents. Postal workers at the Royal Mail sorting office in Wallasey stopped work on Monday in a row with management over new working conditions. Changes to postal routes made by postmen and women are said to have added to the number of deliveries they now make. Out of the 70 workers at the Wallasey office, 65 are involved in the strike.

A SHOT FIRED IN ANFIELD is being investigated by police. The single shot was fired on Westcombe Road yesterday morning and police have recovered a single bullet casing. Nobody was injured and it is still not known what the gunman’s target was.

Josephine Butler House is currently being demolished up there at the corner of Hope Stret. Luckily the new Tesco being built opposite will more than compensate.
