  4. Hillsborough inquests

    Ben Schofield, BBC Radio Merseyside

    A draft report about the Hillsborough disaster "exaggerated" how late fans turned up at the stadium on the day, a senior officer involved in writing it has admitted.

    Former Ch Supt Terry Wain oversaw the team which wrote the report, which was being prepared for a public inquiry into the tragedy.

    A jury heard how the report stressed the importance of alcohol on fans' behaviour on the day. But it did not include many references to senior officers losing control or criticism of police leadership.

  5. Anger over Saughall traveller convoy

    Chester Chronicle

    Angry residents living near a Saughall cycle path which has been "taken over" by a convoy of travellers are at the end of their tether as the encampment enters its fourth day.

    More than half a dozen caravans arrived on the land, situated on the Welsh border with Sealand, last Friday afternoon - causing chaos for those living nearby who claim the noise and litter issues are becoming unbearable.

    But much of the anger has been directed at Sustrans North West, the charity who own the land and North Wales Police, who have told the community they are unable to act unless the landowners make an attempt to remove the convoy.
