<b>Monday April 27:</b> Hillsborough PC's 'confession', and other city news in so many words

Published on April 27th 2009.

Police “confession”
A HILLSBOROUGH policewoman has become the first officer to claim she was bullied into changing her statement in the aftermath of the disaster.

Special Constable Debra Martin says she made a statement telling how a Kevin Williams, a Liverpool fan of 15, died in her arms at 3.55pm on the day of the tragedy.

But , according to a report in yesterday's Sunday Mirror, officers branded her a “liar” and forced her to change the time to 3.15pm – to hide the fact he could have been saved.

Terror watch
LIVERPOOL FC and Man UTD are monitoring the security situations in Indonesia and Thailand after the Foreign Office warned of a "high threat from terrorism" in both countries.

European champions United are due to play fixtures in China, South Korea, Malaysia and Indonesia in July while Liverpool's first-team squad will face Thailand in Bangkok on July 22.

Profit and loss
The RMT union says it is poised for action after news that Merseyrail made record pre-tax profits of £9m last year – while warning that it may still axe jobs and make cutbacks if it can’t raise ticket prices next year.

Crash probe
POLICE are still investigating an accident in which a lorry smashed into four houses, ripping the front off one of them, in Queens Drive, Walton, early on Saturday.

The lorry struck homes when it collided with a Renault Scenic on Saturday morning. The car's male driver, 27, remains in a critical condition in hospital.

Structural engineers from Liverpool City Council are still checking the damage to one of the houses.
