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

LIVERPOOL IS FACING A HEADTEACHER RECRUTIMENT CRISIS because of a reluctance to take on what has been deemed an impossible job.

In a damning attack on the Government, Ian Andain, headteacher at Broadgreen International School and chairman of city headteachers’ group Liverpool Schools Forum, said the nature of the job was a large factor in teachers shunning headships, particularly in challenging urban areas like Liverpool. “The Government seems determined to make headship as difficult as possible”, he said.

MORE THAN 800 HOMES AND BUSINNESSES COULD BE CPO'd as part of the Merseytram Line One planning bid; deadline looming.

Merseytravel has issued notices to householders and landowners warning them that it may need to acquire their land and properties in a bid to ensure the £450m project stays on track, doesn't hit the buffers, be derailed or any other metaphor for it not happening.

Private houses, gardens, pubs and other land lie in the path of the proposed tramline, to run between Liverpool and Knowsley via Tuebrook and Norris Green.

MEANWHILE, train operator Merseyrail provided the most reliable service in the UK, according to new figures.

Over the four week period ending February 5, and despite the worst winter weather in 30 years, 97.85% of its trains ran on time.

The figures bring Merseyrail’s reliability average over the past 12 months to 96.33% – the highest ever achieved by any UK train operator.

THE MERSEY REGION IS TO GET A SLICE OF £57M TO FIGHT FLOODING and stop coastal erosion.

Liverpool city council will also receive £1m of funding to investigate land drainage and flood risks, along with local flooding issues associated with watercourses in Tuebrook.
