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

Flight from airports across the country including Liverpool and Manchester were disrupted today apparently due to an ash cloud from a volcanic eruption in Iceland.
Manchester Airport issued a warning saying the National Air Traffic Control Service (Nats) had placed restrictions on flights until 1800hrs this evening. Passengers should check with their airline before travelling to the airport this morning.


The University of Liverpool was more than £15 million out in its financial forecasts for the past academic year, accounts reveal.
The university had expected to end the year to July 2009 with a surplus of £2.3 million. However, when the accounts were collated an overall deficit of £13.2 million emerged.

The finance director has since been replaced and Liverpool's financial statements say most of the deficit was due to lower than budgeted research income.

Rafa Benitez has paid tribute to the people of Liverpool ahead of today's Hillsborough memorial service.
It is the 21st anniversary of the disaster, which claimed the lives of 96 fans, and a memorial service is being held in front of a crowd of 10,000 at Anfield on Thursday afternoon.

He said: 'All the players and all the staff are always there trying to support the families because it is a very important day for the club.


A jury has started its deliberations in the trial of a Merchant Taylors' trainee teacher accused of having sex with one of her pupils.
Hannah McIntyre, 25, denies one count of sexual activity with a child by a person in a position of trust at Liverpool Crown Court.
