Joe, the fat controller, in the Echo today, moaning about the cost of the potholes in the city.

http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/liverpools-pot-hole-crisis-council-12756218



Here's an idea Joe.   Try finding the money for the work on the potholes, instead of your pet project trying to get the Commonwealth Games, stadium for Everton.

Fight between a lad and a doorman, doorman sparked him to the ground, lad hit his head on cobbles, sounds like serious condition/dead. It will be at least life changing injuries, hence police cordoned of, to preserve evidence, and look after the scene. They'll need to ensure a thorough investigation is done, especially as it involves a doorman, who has been arrested.

Damn, poor guy.  Somebody has probably had a few too many and been a bit of a knob head but nobody deserves to lose their life.  Doubt the door man meant it.

Matthew Street will be counting the cost of this and all, being Derby day and all.

One of the busiest parts of Liverpool city centre was cordoned off by police after violence flared outside a bar .

Emergency services were sent to Mathew Street shortly after 8pm to reports of an incident involving bar customers and doormen.

According to eyewitnesses, a man lashed out at a doorman as he was being escorted away after being thrown out of Remeniss bar in Temple Court.

Another doorman then struck the customer and he fell to the ground and was knocked unconscious.

The customer was taken away in an ambulance. His condition is not known.

It is believed the doorman who struck him was arrested by police.

An eyewitness said: “A group of lads were thrown out of Remeniss and were kicking off.

“They were being quite aggressive and wouldn’t walk away. Just when it seemed it had calmed down, one of the lads suddenly lashed out and punched one of the doormen in the face.

“A doorman from one of the other pubs then punched the lad and he fell over and was knocked out when his head hit the ground.

“He was walked off to the ambulance and the doorman was arrested by police.”

Mathew Street is usually a seething mass of people on Saturday evening, especially after the Merseyside derby.

This evening an area outside Legends sports bar in Mathew Street was cordoned off by police.

A forensics officer was inside the cordon taking pictures of the site where the man fell.

However, outside the cordon it was business as usual with all bars remaining open.

Another area outside the Metquarter in Whitechapel was also cordoned off by police but it is not known if this was linked to the Mathew Street incident.

The EDL is apparently planning a Liverpool march on June 3rd.  It's an Echo article so not sharing the spambotic link.

I'm sure they'll get the traditional welcome.

Liverpool lightship sold for just £12,500 - leaving former owner with £40,000 bill

Liverpool's Planet Lightship has been sold for just £12,500 – but the bitter dispute has left its former owner facing a bill for over £40,000 and threatening to report the ship as stolen.

In April the Canal and River Trust, which seized the Planet from Canning Dock last September after a row over unpaid fees, confirmed it had accepted an offer for the famous red ship.

It has now confirmed the sale, which the ECHO understands was for £87,500 less than its advertised price of £100,000.

The row started over a disputed bill of less than £10,000 and former owner Alan Roberts has been told that after the proceeds of the sale, he still owes the Trust £43,576.49 – including the cost of removing the ship from Liverpool and storing her at Gloucester docks.

Mr Roberts called the sale “absolutely disgraceful” and he was reporting the Trust to police for theft.

In an email from the Trust to Mr Roberts, seen by the ECHO, it said £12,500 was the “highest and only offer” there had been for the lightship.

It said it believed he had “engaged in actions that generated adverse publicity relating to the vessel and its removal from Liverpool Docks”, which had put off potential purchasers.

The email, from contracts lawyer Thami Nomvete, added: “This sum falls far short of the costs we incurred as consequence of your failure to comply with the berthing Agreement, but we could not remain in possession of the vessel indefinitely and had to take the steps we have taken, to prevent any further costs being incurred by the Trust in relation to the vessel.”

Mr Roberts said: “She was sold for £12,500 – absolutely disgraceful. Just the ropes were worth that. They have deprived our city of one of the three graces of the sea and part of our maritime history.”

He said the ship belonged in Liverpool, called the sale “unjust” and added: “I will bring her home to our city”.

In documents seen by the ECHO, the Trust says Mr Roberts has paid an outstanding amount of £5,686 for berthing fees dating back to 2014.

But the additional costs include £2660 for berthing fees from 2016, £1250 for liability insurance and £5520 for storing the ship at Sharpness docks in Gloucester.

The Canal & River Trust said the lightship would undergo restoration work and it understood it would then be offered for resale – which it said had secured the ship’s future.



Chantelle Seaborn, waterway manager at the Trust, said: “I am pleased that Planet is looking at a viable future.

“Hopefully a business, group or individual in Liverpool is able to step forward and purchase the renovated Lightship and bring her back to Liverpool under new management when she goes back on the market.”

In a further statement, it said: “Taking control of Planet was a difficult decision that had to be made after many attempts to resolve a number of issues with the owner.

“These included serious health and safety breaches as well as non-payment of berthing fees.

“She was on the market for many months, and having had enquiries and interest, the Trust accepted the highest offer – which was from someone who plans to restore her rather than break her up for scrap.”

The sale of Planet was put on hold in December after a huge campaign , led by Merseyside Civic Society, to bring her back to Liverpool.

Campaigners had urged the Trust to ensure the ship’s return to Merseyside and called the sale a “sorry saga” and a disaster.
