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

<b>Thurs Nov 26:</b> Bouncers to wear head cameras, RLPO goes to China, Merseyrail's glowing punctuality etcetera

Published on November 26th 2009.

BOUNCERS at nine Liverpool bars are wearing head-cams as part of a new drive to make the city a safe place at night.

The miniature cameras record pictures and sound and are designed to reduce drink fuelled violence, and provide crucial evidence if a crime is committed.

They are being used at the Baa Bar on Wood Street and Myrtle St, Modo in Concert Square and Bumper on Hardman Street, and it is hoped it will soon extend to other premises.

ROYAL LIVERPOOL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA TO PERFORM in Shanghai next year as part of Liverpool’s presence at World Expo.

The trip in April 2010 will also be used to launch a drive to attract more Chinese tourists to Liverpool.
