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

<B>Monday Dec 7:</b> Brown intervenes over Kirkby Tesco plan, Fazakerly hospital bans Christmas decs, London air link hopes dashed etc

Published on December 7th 2009.

GORDON BROWN HAS INTERVENED TO TRY TO RESCUE Everton’s plans to move to Kirkby. High level talks have taken place in the hope of reviving plans for the 50,000 capacity stadium and Tesco store, but minus the accompanying shops which led to the project’s rejection.

Citing the impact it will have on the region and the effect on England’s 2018 World Cup bid, the PM has urged his ministers to find a way out of the wreckage of “Destination Kirby”.

FAZAKERLEY HOSPITAL HAS BANNED CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS after fears they would cause infections. Bosses say cleaning would be impaired by decorations which can harbour dust and spores, and have planned to put up a 6ft fibre-optic tree instead.

LIVERPOOL TO LONDON RAIL LINKS ARE A BETTER OPTION than flights to Heathrow, a Parliamentary report has concluded. The study, headed by Riverside MP Louise Ellman, backs the third runway expansion of Britain's biggest airport, but concludes it is needed to meet growing demand for international, rather than domestic, flights. It was deemed ‘essential’ that the 225mph West Coast mainline link goes directly to Heathrow, as well as central London, cutting travelling time to just 1 hour 40 minutes. The study’s recommendations are a blow to Liverpool John Lennon’s hopes of reviving flights to London.

CURTIS WARREN COULD FACE ANOTHER DECADE BEHIND BARS, unless he pays ten of millions of pounds. The authorities on Jersey, where he was jailed for 13 years, are attempting to finally seize his alleged fortune, and If he can't or won't pay, he will serve 10 years in default.
