<b>News of the day in so many words:</b> Monday June 29.... Council still badly behaved; knife attack in Kingdom and more

Published on June 29th 2009.

FOUR boys arrested on suspicion of setting a sleeping man alight as he slept have been released on police bail.

The 15-year-olds from Walton were arrested on suspicion of wounding. Inquiries continue.

AN inquiry has criticised the state of democracy in Liverpool. The Report of the Liverpool Commission has cited a lack of diversity, poor behaviour at council meetings and a glut of obstacles in attracting people into local government. The report stated over-use of jargon and out-dated methods in communicating, adding that the electorate has reinforced stereotypes of local democracy. It has made several recommendations, including better representation for minority and marginal groups.

A DRINKER at the Kingdom Bar was slashed with a knife after bumping into a man. The 31-year-old victim, from the Wirral, was injured with a retractable blade just before 2am on Sunday at the Harrington Street venue. Police are appealing for witnesses who may help them track down the white, “slightly overweight” offender.
