<b>News of the day in so many words:</b> You know when you've been Tangoed, unfit murder suspect and Ken Dodd at Lime Street station

Published on June 11th 2009.

TANGOED PUPILS will be sent home following a school crackdown on fake tan. Deyes High School, Maghull, have also prohibited school children from wearing heavy make-up as part of a get-tough approach by the Merseyside to “maintain standards”. After the excessive use of makeup and tanning creams, the headteacher insisted in a letter to parents that “makeup should be applied in moderation” and hair should always be tied back.

A MAN ARRESTED in counter-terrorism raids across the region last month has voluntarily returned to Pakistan. Tariq-ur-Rehman said he was leaving as a protest following his treatment by police, which included being strip searched “just because he was a Muslim”.

A WARRINGTON MAN wanted with the murder of his girlfriend in Paris, has failed to attend a court hearing because he is too “unfit” to attend. Ian Griffin, 40, was arrested at the beginning of the month following the death of his millionairess girlfriend, Kinga Legg, at a hotel in Paris, which resulted in Griffin going on the run. Refusing extradition to France at a previous court hearing, Griffin has been remanded “pending a psychiatric report”.

MERSEYSIDE COMEDIAN Ken Dodd's statue will be unveilled at Lime Street station today. The work of local sculptor Tom Murphy, the 'Chance Meeting' statue shows Ken Dodd greeting the late Labour MP Bessie Braddock. Commissioned by Merseytravel as part of their public art programme, it is said to symbolise the coming together of two important Liverpool figures from entertainment and politics.
