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

<b>Monday 7 Sept:</b> Liverpool: still the place to be, BNP leader on Question Time and airport set to grow

Published on September 7th 2009.

LIVERPOOL HAS BEEN NAMED in the top three UK city break destinations for the second consecutive year. The up-market Conde Nast Traveller Magazine announced the results of the readers' poll at an awards ceremony in London. Liverpool found itself ranked behind London and Edinburgh in the list of favourite UK cities.

THE NORTH WEST MEP and leader of the BNP, Nick Griffin, could soon appear on Question Time. THE BBC is preparing to invite him on the show, saying it is bound by the rules to treat all political parties with "due impartiality".

Talks are being held with other political parties as some have refused to share a platform with the allegedly racist party, but the BBC said “no parties can dictate who should or shouldn't be included".

A LOTTERY-FUNDED ARTS PROJECT celebrated after being named the best in the UK. Sefton Performing Arts and Creative Education (Space) centre, based on Marsh Lane in Bootle, won the arts category in the 2009 Lottery Awards. Space offers teenagers a place to take part in creative activities to gain skills and qualifications. Staff from Space were presented with a prize of £2,000.

JOHN LENNON AIRPORT has revealed plans for a £12m extension. Details of the development were released as it emerged low-cost carrier Easyjet may bring more routes to Merseyside. The planned extension could add 45% extra retail space, providing a total of 80,000 square feet of retail.
