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

<b>Tuesday 22 Sept:</b> City's Shanghai Expo trip reviewed and other stuff

Published on September 22nd 2009.

LIVERPOOL is reviewing its presence at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai after London pulled out of the event.

The capital's decision came last week, as a cost-cutting move, as it attempts to find cash to plug a £160m hole in staging the 2012 Olympics.

It leaves Liverpool as the only British city with a stand at the event and Cllr Eddie Clein is calling for assurances that it will not cost the city any more than the £3m budgeted, half of that coming from public funds.

POLICE ARE HUNTING A GANG OF MASKED GUNMEN who shot a 19-year-old man. Police found the victim outside shops on Hillside Road, Huyton. He was taken to hospital for treatment to a gunshot wound to his buttock. It is believed the four men in balaclavas sped-off towards Primrose Drive in a dark coloured car at 9:45pm.

PLANS FOR A £10M WIRRAL COAST REDEVELOPMENT have been announced. Known as the Mersey Coast Project, it will take place between Rock Ferry and Eastham and will include the Royal Mersey Yacht Club. A Wirral Council spokeswoman said it would "transform the waterfront area" and will enable the club to host national and international events.

FAKE £1 COINS HAVE HIT MERSEY TUNNEL’S REVENUE by around £86,000. The coins are thought to have been used in the Queensway and Kingsway tunnels, for about six months. Merseytravel believe the coin scam is a national rather than local issue and have promised to take action against fraudsters.
