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

<b>Thurs June 3:</b> Rafa 'on his way'? Liverpool cabbie caught up in Cumbria horror; CCTV for Hillsborough monument and Chester shops on hold

Published on June 3rd 2010.

It looks likely that Rafael Benitez will be leaving Liverpool FC this summer.

The club’s board have apparently offered the Spaniard £3m to leave.

Rafa is dissatisfied with the current owner’s commitment to strengthening the squad, and as a result the board feel they are not on the same wavelength.

Liverpool’s board of directors are trying to get Benitez to leave amicably, as his severance deal could cost the club £16m if he is sacked, a price tag far too high for the debt-ridden club.

A Liverpudlian taxi driver last night spoke of his horrifying encounter with the man who killed a dozen people in Cumbria yesterday.

Don Reed was shot in the back after diving to avoid a kill shot aimed at him by gunman Derrick Bird.

Don worked with fellow taxi driver Derrick, who started his murderous rampage at their taxi rank and continued throughout Cumbria, shooting randomly- killing 12 and injuring a further 25.

A Hillsborough memorial in Port Sunlight may be fitted with CCTV cameras after continuous vandalism.

A community fundraising bid raised £26,500 to repair the memorial garden after it was vandalised last June, and only weeks after reopening it has been targeted again.

Repairs will cost an estimated £1,500, and, as a precautionary tactic, the village trust submitted planning applications to install two evidential standard cameras on the memorial.

Plans to develop Chester’s “answer to Liverpool One” have come unstuck due to the recession.

Developers, ING Real Estate, have asked Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWCC) to extend the current planning permission by five years, as the 400,000sq ft retail project- which includes a new department store, shopping streets, market, and theatre- would be too expensive to conduct at this moment.

This means it could be 2015 before work begins on the scheme – if at all.
