<b>News of the day in so many words: </b> memorial vandalised, a film maker has been arrested and police want witnesses

Published on June 8th 2009.


BNP have made gains at Labour's expense in the European elections. Sneaking through the back door of Manchester's Town Hall due to protests, BNP leader Nick Griffin remarked on the breakthrough the “most demonised and lied about party in British politics has made” - eight percent of the North West vote. The Conservatives won three seats, Labour have two, LibDems one, UKIP one and the BNP one, with the elections being described as “a comment on Westminster politics”.

VANDALS have caused thousands of pounds of damage to the Hillsborough memorial gardens at Port Sunlight. Described by residents of Port Sunlight as a “scene of devastation”, the gang targeted the stonework surrounding the garden on Saturday.

A FILM MAKER from Liverpool has been sent to prison in the Cape Verde Islands. Accused of entering the Sao Tiago island illegally, Graham Hughes contacted his family at home in Liverpool to tell them he had been arrested and is in a cell with 10 other men, after the boat he was on was “intercepted”. Mr Hughes was on his way to the island as part of an expedition to raise money for charity.

POLICE are appealing to witnesses to come forward following a shoot-out at a pub in Croxteth. The “targeted” shooting, which has injured a 33-year-old man, happened at the Lobster Hotel pub on Friday night. Police have spoke of “special measures” that have been put in place to protect those who come forward with information.
