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

Tuesday Sept 23: Drink-drive charge judge quits... dentist case hears of leopard-thong prancing.... and pubs fined

Published on September 23rd 2009.


A LIVERPOOL CROWN COURT JUDGE, who was arrested for allegedly being drunk in charge of a car while on bail for a similar offence, has resigned.

Bruce Macmillan, 63, of Sefton Park, was arrested in Toxteth, last Thursday but bailed pending further inquiries.

He had been charged with drinking and driving on 27 August after being stopped on the M6 in Lancashire. By stepping down he loses his £128,000-a-year salary, but avoids being disrobed by the Lord Chief Justice and Lord Chancellor.

Mr Macmillan is due to appear before magistrates in Chorley on 30 September to face the original charge of drinking and driving.

A DENTIST FROM WARRINGTON HAD SEX IN HIS SURGERY after developing a pattern of sexually motivated behaviour towards four dental nurses, the General Dental Council has heard.

Anthony Barton, 36, would allegedly strut around in a leopard print thong while shouting, “Get a load of that!” Barton, 36, of Warrington, Cheshire, faces 17 charges releating to his job in a Wigan practice, from 2000 to 2008. He admits having sex with Ms B but denies touching three others.

WIRRAL PUBS HAVE BEEN FINED THOUSANDS of pounds after private investigators caught them illegally showing Liverpool and Everton matches on Sky.

Wirral’s Pensby Hotel’s supervisor was found guilty, in his absence, to the charge of dishonestly receiving a programme. Both proprietor’s of The Dell in Prenton and the Queen’s Hotel in Birkenhead pleaded guilty to the same charge at Wirral Magistrates Court yesterday.

AN ACTION PLAN WAS LAUNCHED after not enough women in Liverpool were having their first pregnancy scan on time. Government targets state 86 per cent of expectant mothers should have their first appointment with a midwife by 12 weeks, but from May until recently the city only achieved 82.5 per cent. Liverpool Primary Care Trust is now addressing the issue as a priority and claims the figure is up by 10%.
