The Nifty 250: News of the day in so many words

<b>Weds Sept 1: </b>Ryanair throws toys out of cot; Liverpool needs a campsite; private sponsors for Mathew Street sought; Professional Liverpool chief made redundant

Published on September 1st 2010.

LIVERPOOL desperately needs a five-star hotel, more city centre townhouse accommodation and high-end restaurants and shops, according to a new report from The Mersey Partnership.
It also needs better places for backpackers and young travellers to stay, as well as a camping and caravaning site close to the city centre.

Its visitor economy committee is also calling for 10 new hotels, drawn to the city by 15 new or enhanced major events, like the Liverpool Boat Show.

The committee hopes its plans will help Merseyside achieve a target of having a £2bn tourism industry, supporting 37,000 jobs, by 2020.

LIVERPOOL firms were today being eyed by Liverpool City Council to provide sponsorship for next year’s Mathew Street Festival, which it currently organises “to insulate it from public spending cuts”.
Council leader Joe Anderson said: “It raises in cost every year so we have got to explore how we bring in private sector investment.” RYANAIR is withdrawing its popular Liverpool to Belfast route from October, along with its services to the city from Stansted, East Midlands, Bristol and Glasgow Prestwick.
The airline's boss, Michael O'Leary, is blaming government delays over approving a controversial runway extension.

While the 50 Ryanair staff working on the routes will be offered redeployment opportunities, Mr O'Leary claimed the move would cost 1,000 other jobs that rely on the operator's presence in the city.

MARK CHADWICK, boss of lobby group Professional Liverpool has been made redundant after the organisation lost 80 per cent of its funding.
The respected business group's card was marked in July when the Northwest Development Agency withdrew its annual £200,000 grant after it, in turn, had its funding cut by £52m.
