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

<b>Monday Sept 14:</b> LFC in £80m sponsorship deal, council worker drowns and call to take land away from gentry

Published on September 14th 2009.

LIVERPOOL FC has agreed the biggest sponsorship deal in its history with international finance giants Standard Chartered Bank.

The four-year deal, starting in July 2010, is said to be worth £20m per season and will see the bank's name and logo replace Carsberg on the club's shirt.

Liverpool managing director Christian Purslow said the sponsorship deal had attracted huge interest from around the world.

A ST HELENS COUNCIL WORKER HAS DROWNED while on holiday in Kenya. Siobhan Meadwell, from Wigan, died while on a boat trip from Mombasa, where she had been staying. A Foreign Office spokesman said her boyfriend was also injured but was released from hospital on Saturday.

AN INVESTIGATION HAS BEEN LAUNCHED after two shots were fired at a car in Everton. The Vauxhall Vectra was travelling on Smith Street, just off Kirkdale Road, when a gunman opened fire from a dark-coloured BMW M3. The three men and woman inside the car were unharmed. Merseyside Police are treating the shooting as a targeted attack but said the motive was unclear.

ARISTOCRATS SHOULD HAVE LAND SNATCHED from them to tackle the region's allotments crisis, the Government was told today. A report said plots should be transferred from the country's biggest landowners to frustrated gardeners, who must otherwise wait years for a plot because of a growing shortage. Nearly 5,500 people are on waiting lists across Merseyside, Cheshire and West Lancashire alone.
