The Wallasy woman , until recently a headteacher at a Liverpool Primary school has been banned for keeping animals for life , fined £1000 and a given a 3 mth suspended sentence for allowing her 17yr old Westie to suffer over months. Hugely matted faeces covered fur, overgrown nails, emaciated , ear infection,ulcers etc etc. £1000 is nothing to a retired teacher ! Her defence - her own health problems prevented her from lifting the dog!

Today at 05:31 PM Liscard Christmas Tree Vandalised by Mark

Liscard’s Christmas tree has been targeted by yobs just two weeks after over 1,000 people packed into the town to see it lit up.

The town’s festive centrepiece was designed to wipe away memories of last year’s decorations, which attracted widespread derision .

The tree – covered in baubles – had been paid for by council funds and local donations and more than 1,000 people had turned out two weeks ago for the official switch-on of the town’s lights .

Baubles taken from festive centrepiece and lights fused in attack condemned by Wallasey MP Angela Eagle

28th Nov 2015 12:53pm BASIC by Snodvan

Ludite here!
I used to write lots of programs in BASIC. Nothing fancy ie no graphics, just text or numerical display outputs after data input/ calculation procedures. Some of the programs will have had thousands of lines of code, others just a few hundred lines

These are all on ---- 3 1/2 " 1.44MB disks !! Remember those?

I do have an ancient but fully working desk machine with a 3 1/2" drive and running XP.

a. Is there any way I can even LIST the BASIC program details so that I can (hopefully) print them?
b. In a perfect world, actually RUN the BASIC programs on an XP machine (albeit probably with some software help)?

28th Nov 2015 8:57am 2 Die In House Fire Seacombe Last Night by markyport

A woman was rescued from the house in James Street after a passing police patrol noticed smoke billowing from the address.

The woman was taken to hospital in a serious condition but later sadly died.

Fire crews discovered the body of a man inside.

The names and ages of the couple are not known, nor is the cause of the blaze.

Neighbours said an elderly couple lived at the house, which lies on a small terraced street near to the Kingsway tunnel.

The couple’s next door neighbour was upstairs when his grandson ran up to say he could smell smoke.

He said: “My grandson ran upstairs and shouted ‘Grandad, quick I can smell smoke’.

“I looked outside and could see flames. I didn’t hear anything before then.

“I ran outside to help the couple. It’s so sad.”

A police cordon was put in place after the blaze broke out shortly after 8:30pm.

Thirteen police cars, fire engines and ambulances, surrounded the home.

The neighbour, who did not want to be named, said he tried to run in to help rescue his neighbours but was held back by fire crews.

He told how he often put the bin out for the couple whom he said were always “very friendly”.

Another neighbour, on nearby St Paul’s Road, said she rushed out when she heard the sirens.

She said: “I heard all the sirens and saw all the emergency services go flying past.

“I couldn’t believe it, my thoughts and prayers are with the family.”

Fire investigators are to examine the scene to determine what sparked the blaze.

Area Manager Dave Mottram said: "The fire service were alerted by the police who discovered the fire whilst in attendance at another incident in the street.

"Police officers made valiant attempts to save the occupiers, forcing entry through the front door, but unfortunately they were unable to do so due to the effects of severe heat and smoke.

"Firefighters were quickly on scene and made entry into the property wearing breathing apparatus, where they found the ground floor was well alight.

"They tackled the fire and prevented it spreading to neighbouring properties. The fire was quickly under control and completely extinguished by 9.30pm.

"An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway, the thoughts of all Merseyside Fire Service staff are with the family of the deceased at this time.

"We understand fires like this can have a great degree of impact on communities and we will be highlighting fire safety messages to people in the area in the coming days.

"Please can I stress the importance of working smoke alarms and remind everyone that Merseyside Fire Service will fit smoke alarms and carry out a home fire safety check free of charge to anyone over 65 in our communities."

26th Nov 2015 12:09pm stolen power tools by tonyh

A friend had his van turned over the other night outside his house in newbrighton, they managed to not set the alarms off and also cut through a steel security cable on the side door they took all his tools and even a hoover. they were seen on cctv they managed a few trips with the tools as they were on pushbikes. I'm guessing they have stashed the gear somewhere near for later pick up. among the items taken were cordless power drills, a plane an impact driver a laser level a makita sp600 plunge saw, which they failed to take the rails for.
if anyone is offered anything like these items give me a shout so we can go and pay them for the items.

25th Nov 2015 3:09pm The gritters are out... by Greenwood

It seems even the gritters are getting into the Christmas spirit a bit early - I've just been spattered on the Meols stretch by a very smart new gritter with snow-clearing attachment. Quite unnerving when the thermometer in the car reads 9C. Am I missing something? Weather forecast looks relatively mild for the next few days. Perhaps it was just a trial run for some new kit; very strange.

25th Nov 2015 9:46am Football parasites. by ludwigvan

Today, George Osborne is expected to announce cuts of £12bn to the welfare budget, this is on top of slashing the amount of money given to councils from central government thereby drastically reducing their ability to provide essential services to the old, sick and vulnerable. Also today, Everton FC ( home to multi millionaire footballers) have announced that they need council financial backing to help them bulld a new football stadium. If this wasn't so appalling it would be amusing.

18th Nov 2015 3:31am Welcome To Becoming Part of Liverpool by diggingdeeper

Liverpool City Region has been approved to get an elected Mayor and devolved powers. I can't see how this can possibly work without Wirral completely losing its political identity.

Interesting that the BBC has called this "Merseyside" and not Liverpool City Region, I would feel a bit more comfortable with the Merseyside title. We are not part of Liverpool and even less so part of Liverpool City.

The final say is by all the councils voting on Thursday this week, I pray at least one council will realise what will become of this.

I think it appalling that there is no referendum on this occurring, we the people should have a say. We already have the ability to share services, what more can this amalgamation bring apart from more jobs for politicians and council officials?
