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

<b>Friday 14 August:</b> Panic in the Premiership, lorry thieves and new city centre halls for students

Published on August 14th 2009.

PARANOID FOOTBALLERS ARE installing panic rooms in their homes after a number of vicious robberies on Premiership players. Spending more than £50,000, a number of Liverpool and Everton players have installed the panic rooms at their homes in Cheshire. The rooms, which will include panic buttons, thickened walls and toughened windows, are said to provide a “safety window” until help arrives.

TWO LIVERPOOL MEN have been arrested after a yacht was found with £10m worth of cocaine in Spain. Mark Mills, 40, and 37-year-old Joseph Bowness were among scores of people held after the UK-bound Dolphin Dancer yacht was stopped 500 miles off Galicia. Police seized 300,000€ (£283,000) as well as a handgun, mobile phones and computer equipment.

A MANHUNT has been launched after a gang rammed police cars with £150,000 worth of stolen trucks. One suspected thief is under arrest in hospital after he was hit by one of the stolen HGVs in the car park of the Tudor Rose pub and Premier Inn, on Parkgate Road, Ledsham, Wirral. The remaining gang-of-three smashed their way past two police cars as they made off towards Heswall in the HGVs stolen from a haulage yard in North Wales an hour earlier. None of the police officers was injured.

THE UNIVERSITY OF LIVERPOOL is spending £45m on building a new city centre halls of residence complex for its students. Subject to planning approval, the eco-friendly development will be the “greenest in the country” and will include green roofs to attract birds and wildlife.
