<b>News of the day in so many words:</b> David Moores quits, Macca's squirrel and more

Published on June 19th 2009.

PAUL MCCARTNEY’S children’s book about the adventures of a squirrel is going to be made into a film. High in the Clouds tells the story of Wirral the Squirrel’s search for animal sanctuary, with the musician expected to write the songs for the animated film. Forgetting the Frog Chorus, It's his first major animation since 1968’s Yellow Submarine, and the tales of the “cheeker Scouse nut-mucher” are to be directed by Rob Minkoff, he of The Lion King and Stuart Little.

TWO SECONDARY SCHOOLS in Ellesmere Port are set for closure in August and will be replaced with an academy. Cheshire West and Cheshire Oaks High School will join at the start of the next academic year in September, moving into a newly constructed maths, sports and performing arts specialising academy in 2011. The University of Chester, Church of England Diocese and the local authority will sponsor the academy, which is said to be a “massive opportunity for the town”.

A LIVERPOOL TEACHER who continued to be paid her wages after she left her job has been jailed for 15 months. Vicki Small, who taught at Lister Drive Junior School, Old Swan, had monthly payments of £1,700 put into her account for more than two years, and used the money to buy a new house.
