<b>News of the day in so many words:</b> Vandalism arrest, fire at Sadlers Farm and a man charged with murder

Published on June 12th 2009.

ARIL PASSENGERS across the region have been disrupted after the derailment of a train in Liverpool. The train, travelling from Blackpool to Liverpool, derailed at the Olive Mount junction, with fire crews leading the 39 passengers to safety, one man being taken to hospital with minor injuries. An investigation is now being carried out, and all services between Liverpool and Preston, Wigan and Manchester, all being affected.

A MAN HAS BEEN CHARGED with the murder of Francesca Bimpson, following the the arson attack on her home in Everton last December. The 42-year-old man from Newport, south Wales, will appear before Liverpool Magistrates today. The three-year-old suffered 90 % burns after petrol was poured through her letterbox, her parents, brother and two sisters managing to escape the fire.

A 16-YEAR-OLD BOY has been arrested in connection to the vandalism at Hillsborough memorial in Port Sunlight. A local voluntary organisation is offering the reward for the prosecution of those who committed £10,000 worth of damage to the stonework at the memorial garden for the 96 Liverpool fans killed at Hillsborough stadium. The teenager has now been released on police bail.

FIREFIGHTER TACKLED a huge blaze at an industrial unit at Sadlers Farm in Benfleet. The fire is thought to be from three coaches and one double-decker bus, happening at 12:30 this morning, with a poor water supply initially hampering the firecrews' efforts. One eyewitness said the acrid black smoke “could be seen for miles around”. The fire was extinguished at 2:30am
