The Nifty 250: A sharp look at the day's news in so many words

Wire star taps into Liverpool; marajuana spray and Dennis, Dennis? Who the hell's Les Dennis?

Published on June 24th 2010.

Sonja Sohn, star of gritty US drama series The Wire has been in Liverpool helping a community theatre group prepare to stage Romeo and Juliet.
She said Liverpool had similar social problems to Baltimore, the US city where The Wire is set and which has one of the highest murder rates in the country.

But she later admitted basing her remarks entirely on a flick through the previous night's Echo.

A spray containing cannabis has been launched in Liverpool to help sufferers of multiple sclerosis.
The medicine, called Sativex, was developed in part at the Walton Centre, in Fazakerley, and is expected to become widely available to patients.

It is the first licensed medical drug containing whole cannabis plant extracts.

One user said he had never felt “high” after using the spray. He did however warn against pointing it in the wrong direction after revealing that two nearby hoverflies had devoured an entire pan of spaghetti the first time he failed to get to grips with it.

Pamela Anderson has spoken of how excited she is to be returning to pantomime for another run of Aladdin at the Liverpool Empire in December - a city “I have never visited before”.

However, the former Baywatch babe, 42, still doesn't know what she has let herself in for.

During an appearance on Alan Carr's Chatty Man TV show, she looked blankly at him when he asked her about starring alongside Family Fortunes presenter Les Dennis admitting she was 'not very good with the details”.

Was Dennis similarly perplexed about who Pammy was? Yes.

“I don't really know!”, he retorted.

And that was before we had even asked him the question.
