2 ECHO MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 @LivEchoNews The voice of the city My city Start of a new normal for residents I was delighted to be invited to the Installation of the High sheriff at Liverpool Parish Church (st Nick’s) at the start of my week. It was a beautiful service attended by many friends and family of the new High sheriff, Nigel Lanceley. I then attended the Episcopal Ordination of Canon Thomas Neylon as auxiliary Bishop of Liverpool and Bishop of Plestia at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King. It was such a moving service, witnessed by so many people. a team of link workers for central Liverpool, part of the Primary Care Network, visited me in the Town Hall to tell me all about the amazing work they do. we finished off with a tour of the Town Hall which they all really enjoyed. I opened an autumn fete at Millvina House, a dementia hub, on Hartnup street. It was so good to see residents and staff enjoying a beautiful day outside in the gardens listening to lovely music. we said it felt like the beginning of a new normality after the long periods of lockdown. we had the Merchant Navy Day service at Liverpool Parish Church to celebrate the role of the Merchant Navy in the city, both past and present. so many veterans and naval officers were in attendance, along with civic dignitaries. we then laid wreaths at the Merchant Navy Memorial at the Pier Head, where everyone sang along to ‘The Leaving of Liverpool’. I finished of this week with a tour of the old dock, underneath Liverpool One. The tour guides brought the whole experience to life for us. absolutely amazing – well done guys!

The 88-year-old victim was riding a mobility scooter when he was hit by a moped in Widnes on Saturday afternoon. The moped rider – and that of a quad bike thought to have been travelling with it – fled the scene. Emergency services were called to Lower House Lane just before 12.30pm. The pensioner was taken to hospital, where he was still receiving treatment for serious injuries yesterday afternoon. Cheshire Police has since established his mobility vehicle crashed with a blue Piaggio Beverly moped that had been with a fluorescent yellow quad bike. City’s new Pandemic Institute will help world prepare for future global viruses By LIam THORP Political editor liam.thorp@trinitymirror.com @LiamThorpECHO LiverpooL will be the headquarters of a new pandemic institute – a world leading partnership committed to helping the world prevent, prepare for and respond more effectively to pandemics. Launched today, the pandemic institute is a medical, academic and civic partnership between the University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, Liverpool University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Liverpool city council, Liverpool City region Combined Authority and Knowledge Quarter (KQ) Liverpool. The teams involved have an ‘unrivalled’ breadth of world-leading clinical, academic, public health and data-driven expertise, all co-located on one campus. The institute will have significant global reach with collaborations across the world. The creation of this major institute comes after Liverpool pioneered a number of innovative approaches and projects during the coronavirus pandemic. The city was the first to pilot mass testing for the virus last November and in the spring played host to the first pilot events, which provided data and evidence to help reopen key sectors of the economy. initially funded by a £10m gift from innova Medical Group, the world’s largest provider of rapid antigen tests, the pandemic institute will be headquartered in The Spine, at paddington village. it will offer world-leading clinical and research expertise, and have global reach, working across the world to deliver new science and build preparedness for future pandemics. The outputs of its work will be rapidly translated into tangible policy, solutions and activity, ensuring real world impact for governments, businesses and individuals across the globe. The overall aim is to accelerate the global response to pandemics, unify global intelligence and increase the reach and impact of pandemic research. professor Matthew Baylis, institute director, said: “The pandemic institute has the potential to help revolutionise how the world responds to pandemics. “Uniquely, it will take a holistic view, from looking at future threats through to the response of communities and the healthcare system as well as treatments such as medicines and vaccines. “Liverpool is perfectly placed to be the home for the pandemic institute – building on the foundations laid in the city, and its significant contributions in this field, Liverpool is a global city with expertise in many fields relevant to pandemics. “We appreciate innova’s support, and recognise the impact and significance of their generous gift for the city of Liverpool and wider global community.” Daniel elliott, Ceo and president of innova Medical Group, said: “innova is committed to improving pandemic outcomes globally and we were attracted to Liverpool after being impressed by the unparalleled amount of large-scale pilot research programmes and the guidance on global public health policy that Liverpool provided during the Covid-19 pandemic.” Police Scientific Support with the mobility scooter at the scene on Lower House Lane ANDREW TEEBAY The Spine in Paddington village News News wIRe Paedo had Facebook phone app An “entrenched paedophile” was found to have breached his sexual harm prevention order after officers found a Facebook application on his phone. Steven John Allen, 43, who is originally from Liverpool, was hit with a sexual harm prevention order at Swansea Crown Court on October 11, 2018, for a period of 10 years. But on August 17, police raided Quay House Hostel at the Strand, Swansea, where he was living, to find a number of social media apps on his phone. Allen had Facebook and Facebook Messenger accounts contrary to one of the prohibitions made as part of the order three years ago which stop him from using, accessing, or creating an account for use on any social networking website or web chat facility. At the time he claimed that his offender manager had authorised his use of Facebook but quick inquiries proved it to be what Judge Huw Rees described as a “bare-faced lie”. He was interviewed by police on August 29 and accepted he was in breach of the order. Last week Swansea Crown Court heard it was Allen’s 11th breach of such orders. Judge Rees, sentencing, said: “You are an entrenched paedophile. On the basis of your antecedents it’s only a matter of time in my judgement before you would offend again.’’ Allen was jailed for 46 months.

Two unexploded devices were found on Merseyside within 24 hours. The first was discovered in a skip at Veolia West Kirby Recycling Centre on Saturday afternoon while the second emerged at the site of Everton’s new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock. In Wirral, customers and staff at the centre were moved off site and a cordon established as a precaution, and no residential properties were affected. The Army’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team attended and carried out the safe detonation of the device, a suspected World War II mortar, on West Kirby beach. On the same day, a device was found at Bramley-Moore Dock. It was transported to Crosby beach and detonated yesterday, at about 9.15am. Susan Brockbank, 50, from Anfield, was walking along Crosby beach when the bomb was detonated. She said: “It was directly outside the coastguard’s office, the bomb disposal, the coastguard and police – but the bomb itself Merseyside Police’s bomb disposal unit detonated the bomb at West Kirby beach, and below, Bramley-Moore Dock was quite a distance away. “I go sometimes on a Sunday for a general walk to clear the head. And it wasn’t too busy at that time of day, I think that’s why they did it then.” The Alder Hey worker added: “There were probably only four or five people standing around by me, and a few runners. “A lot of people were walking up the beach, and I spoke to a couple afterwards who said they didn’t know it was going on and it made them jump quite a bit! “A police officer did say to myself and a man standing by me, they told us it would probably go off as a little pop – the bomb squad didn’t think it would go off with such a loud bang. “I’m not a fan of big fireworks, so I thought, ‘oh, I’ll video it then’. I’m surprised I got it, it made me jump that much!”

facebook.com/theliverpoolecho MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 ECHO 5 Revellers feared for safety at ‘nightmare’ Reminisce dozens complained of huge queues, being ‘crushed’ in music tents and ‘disgusting’ toilets By JOe THOMAs Crime reporter joe.thomas@trinitymirror.com @joe_thomas18 Festival-goers say they feared for their safety at reminisce Festival. revellers who hoped to party at reminisce described their trip as a “nightmare”, claiming they were met with huge queues and unsafe conditions. Dozens of disappointed ticket holders contacted the eCHo to raise concerns, while the event’s Facebook page was flooded with criticism. a spokesperson for the festival, thought to have been attended by around 20,000, said those behind the event were “disappointed” with some of the problems but still proud of the show, while organiser lee Butler added: “We really tried our best. We didn’t get it all right and we will learn and fix any issues, i can promise you that.” reminisce was held in sherdley Park in st Helens on saturday. thousands headed to the sold-out festival for sets by well-known DJs PeoPLe campaigning against plans to turn a park into a dual carriageway have been accused of “misleading” the public. The park, based in South Sefton, has proved popular amongst locals for generations and provides a much needed green space for the area. However, Highways england plans a new road through rimrose Valley. Save rimrose Valley (SrV) have campaigned tirelessly against the plans, and this week Peel Ports – which owns nearby Seaforth Docks – and artists including N-trance and Basshunter. But several said they left early because of queues, payment issues and concerns over the management of crowds at the event. one of those disappointed visitors told the eCHo: “i have been the last two years and and it’s been absolutely amazing, really well organised.” the woman, from ellesmere Port, said this year was different: “We were in the queue for an hour and people were just getting really annoyed. it took 45 minutes to get a drink and then it was 45 minutes for the toilets.” once inside, she added: “We went to a couple of tents. We had arrived about 12.30pm and queued an hour to get in but the tents were oK at the beginning. But towards 5pm the place was rammed, it was person to person.” Describing her experience in one of the music tents, she continued: “We were right by the metal barriers. someone was pushing and i was getting squashed against them and couldn’t move. My mate started to cry. No-one would move.” Rimrose road campaigners accused of ‘misleading’ public accused them of using information that is “misplaced and misleading”. In an open letter, Peel’s chief executive Mark Whitworth wrote: “The relief route proposal is a project which has been assessed, conceived and taken forward by the National Highways agency. “It is not and never has been a Peel Ports project. The letter goes on to say Peel Ports makes a “very strong economic Peel Ports’ boss Mark Whitworth she said they were able to force themselves out and said: “When we eventually got out it was such a relief. “the whole experience of being crushed, spending hours to queue... it was just a nightmare.” another festival-goer raised similar experiences, telling the eCHo: “it took two and a half hours to get into the festival, there was no crowd control whatsoever. “We queued for 45 minutes for a crate of amstel for £100. it was supposed to be cash and card, however, once in it was only cash.” He described the toilets as “disgraceful” and said he too feared for his safety amid the crowd. the reminisce Facebook page had dozens of similar complaints. one wrote: “Couldn’t wait to get there this year, safe to say i’ll never be back! Feared for my safety, queued for nearly three hours to get in and how we got in safely i’ll never know.” and another wrote: “Had a good time once we actually got in. Crammed in horrendous crowds trying to get in for hours on end, people having panic attacks from the crush contribution and local commitment” and that Mr Whitworth “cannot stress strongly enough that your ongoing attempt to paint our organisation as the main driver behind this project is misplaced and misleading”. However SrV says the letter is an “insult to the intelligence of local people”. Lead campaigner Stuart Bennett told the eCHo: “They refer to National Highways’ Port of Liverpool Festival-goers complained of huge queues at the drinks tents at reminisce when queuing.” in response to the concerns, a spokesperson for reminisce said: “We take the health and safety of our festival-goers extremely seriously. “the event organisers work extensively with local authorities to ensure that all safety measures are in place.” the organisers said damaged network lines led to the site’s internet connection being severely disrupted, meaning card payments failed, but said they ensured free water was available throughout. they added: “this also meant that the ticketing system on the entrance was running slowly when connecting to the backup 4g system. “this, coupled with additional police and security on arrival for the prevention of drug misuse, meant access to the site was unavoidably slower than usual – resulting in considerable queues.” the statement concluded: “reminisce are saddened that a relatively small percentage of this year’s attendees were unhappy with their experience and ticket holders will be contacted in due course.” Access Scheme as the ‘Sefton relief road’ in a frankly embarrassing attempt to deflect attention away from their major stake in the project. “They deny being the driving force behind the road proposal yet spend five pages telling us exactly why they believe it is needed. It would be laughable if the implications for our communities weren’t so serious.’’ Sefton Council says it remains “very concerned” about air quality issues, as well as the proposed destruction of the park. News News wIRe Councillor complaints are dropped More than half of the outstanding complaints made against sitting city councillors will not be examined any further after a review by officers. Liverpool council’s complaints process is currently under scrutiny after concerns from some councillors about the time taken to resolve complaints. A recent survey by officers found 40 complaints in the system, some of which “dated back a long period”. Work to examine them and check whether they meet the criteria for any further action resulted in 24 being dropped. A further 15 are set to be examined further and an informal resolution to one complaint has already been proposed. The councillors who are subject to complaints have not yet been named and little detail about the complaints is known. Members of the council’s ethics and standards committee received an update on the first phase of the complaints review last week. Monitoring officer Jeanette McLoughlin said members who are subject to complaints that are being taken further will be asked for responses, with more detail then set to be brought to councillors. Ms McLoughlin said that further decisions on publishing details about specific complaints would be made as those complaints were assessed.

6 ECHO MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 @LivEchoNews News By jonathan humphries ECHO reporter jonathan.humphries@trinitymirror.com @JHumphriesEcho Almost 1,000 patients were “lost” from a list of follow-up appointments causing some “severe harm”. the issue was identified at southport and ormskirk Hospital NHs trust in what managers are attributing to the knock-on effect of the Covid pandemic. the patients affected were a group who needed to be followed up and clinically reviewed after finishing treatment or as part of ongoing monitoring of a long-term condition. the trust found that 963 patients had been “lost to follow-up”, and after investigating further classed 22 of those as having experienced some level of harm. the details were included in a report to the governing body of south sefton NHs Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which stated four of those 22 were found to have suffered “severe” harm, six “moderate” and 12 “low”. the hospital trust says that all the Sign up to the ECHO newsletter – scan the code above for instant access, or visit www. liverpoolecho.co.uk/ getanewsletter 22 patients have experienced ‘some harm’ as covid knock-on hits harm occurred before october 2020, when a dedicated team was put in place to track patients on the “nonadmitted” follow-up list. A spokesman for southport and ormskirk Hospitals said: “like many NHs trusts, we have reduced capacity due to the impact of Covid-19. “In line with national guidance our priority is to focus on patients whose clinical need is most urgent. “this has meant that those patients deemed to be less clinically urgent have waited longer than we would like. “the figures in the south sefton CCG paper refer to patients who mostly do not require an inpatient stay and patients who may need follow-up after surgery.” trust Chief operating officer lesley Neary said: “since october 2020, Patients ‘lost’ on follow-up list we have had a dedicated team tracking this group of patients to ensure we are prioritising them based on their clinical need. “None of the patients who have been tracked since october have come to any harm. “We take very seriously and apologise for any time where we fell short of the high standards we set ourselves. “Each case is thoroughly investigated with our patients kept informed throughout.” the CCG report, by chief nurse Chrissie Cooke, also said the local system is continuing to experience high levels of pressure due to the backlogs caused during lockdown. Across sefton as a whole, pressures on the system have seen long waiting lists for patients needing Southport and Formby DGH: the trust it is part of has lost almost 1,000 follow-up appointments non-emergency treatment. NHs targets say 90% of patients should receive treatment within 18 weeks of a referral, and a zero tolerance rule is in place for waits of more than 52 weeks. However CCG figures show that in June 2021, 912 sefton patients were waiting more than 52 weeks from referral, and only 66% of patients had been treated within 18 weeks.

facebook.com/theliverpoolecho MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 ECHO 7 By DANNY RIGG ECHO Reporter news@liverpool.com @LivEchoNews Three women born and raised in Liverpool have spoken of their pain at not being able to see family from the war-torn countries of their parents’ birth. haneen, 24, is a Palestinian Scouser from Anfield. her dad left Palestine due to war when he was 13. her grandmother also left the country after her husband died in a car accident. She told the eChO: “She had to leave in the dead of night, barefoot with children under 10, and walk from Palestine to Jordan. Since that day, she’s never got to go home and see her house. She died in Liverpool. “So what we do, activism, I honestly do it for my grandma. I owe it to her. And it’s so emotional when I did go back because I would have loved her to be with me, to show me around the house. “But it’s my dad trying to pick and choose the memories that he wants to remember, because he was terrified when he went. You know, the trauma he’d have got as a kid. It sparks anxiety, doesn’t it?” For Sarah Ashaikh, a Syrian poet from Liverpool, visiting and speaking to family means navigating numerous countries and time zones. Sarah told the eChO: “I’ve witnessed, not first hand, but my mum, with her family members and her relatives, you know, they’ve lost their lives and they’ve had to flee to different countries. “My relatives are now scattered all over the world. They’re refugees in all these different countries. We’ve got Turkey, Sudan, Germany, england. “It does make it really difficult. We have to find different methods of communication with each country. every country is different. And in terms of the ones in Syria, the communication is difficult. It’s inconsistent.” Sarah has never been to Syria. The war, which broke out in 2011 and continues to this day, scuppered her plans to visit. She told the eChO: “It’s really sad, especially as I’m not able to get in touch with that part of my culture and that part of my identity. “It’s like a part of me, but it’s somewhere that I won’t be able to visit for a long time.” It’s been almost a decade since haifa Alkhanshali, 23, last visited family in Yemen. Millions face starvation and displacement in the country due to war between houthi rebels and a Saudi Arabia-led coalition. haifa told the eChO: “It’s extremely, extremely difficult. I know my uncle a few months ago went, and he had to travel to two different countries and then go to Aden, and then get a six-hour coach just to get to the capital.” Haneen Awaad, left, Sarah Ashaikh, centre, and Haifa Alkhanshali are Liverpool women from the city’s Palestinian, Syrian and Yemeni communities Three liverpool women on The pain of separaTion from Their idenTiTy and culTure ‘It’s part of me but also somewhere I won’t be able to visit for a long time’ The Liverpool John Moores University graduate, from Childwall, added: “It’s quite hard to be honest, because we haven’t seen our family in a while, especially my mum. “All her family is in Yemen. So it’s really difficult seeing as we haven’t been in nearly 10 years.” Liverpool is home to these three women, but there is also another home that each of them feels separated from. Sarah’s is a place she may never see. haifa’s is a country where she’s immersed in her family and her culture. haneen’s is a journey across a border and checkpoints that is both ‘stressful and ‘rewarding’. Speaking of Palestine, she told the eChO: “It’s not all what you see on the TV. I was expecting tanks in the street and rockets flying left, right and centre. “Unless there’s something going The oppressed need a voice, and it’s our responsibility in these countries where we have freedom of speech, to give them that voice Sarah Ashaikh on, it’s pretty much peaceful. People just go on doing their day-today lives, and I was quite taken aback and quite shocked by that. “Because there are nightclubs, there are shisha lounges, weddings, parties. everything is like normal. But you have to carry on with normality in the back of your head, and expect the worst.” At home in Liverpool, they feel the need to speak up for people in their other homes of Syria, Yemen and Palestine. Sarah said: “The oppressed need a voice, and it’s our responsibility in these countries where we have freedom of speech to give them that voice.” That sense of responsibility is shared by haifa, a member of Liverpool’s long-established Yemeni community, who advocates for people in Yemen who don’t have family here to help them. haifa told the eChO: “For me, I’ve got family there, so it gives me a sense of responsibility, because I’m Yemeni. “Obviously we have been trying to help our family back home as much as we can by donating anything we can. But I know there are families there that don’t have anyone. “So I feel like because I’m here and I’m Yemeni, I need to help them. I can’t let them down. how can I forget my own country, my own culture?” CASH Positively the best buyer of houses, land and investment properties in the North West.

10 ECHO MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 News retail owners angered by wait for road resurfacing @LivEchoNews Unfinished business: County Road, also insets ANDREW TEEBAY Paula Towner Craig Chadwick Jamie Morris Businesses’ fury at state of high street By ALAN WESTON ECHO reporter alan.weston@trinitymirror.com @alanweston PeoPle who live and work on one of the main routes into and out of the city opened their hearts about the amount of disruption they are experiencing. County Road in Walton has been left in a half-finished state for months after the original contractors collapsed into administration. It means around a mile of the busy road has been left untarmacked, with ramps, raised manholes, temporary barriers and road signs warning of the danger. In the meantime, the eCHo heard numerous accounts of road rage as drivers negotiate the unmarked road, along with minor collisions, people being sprayed from accumulated surface water, along with businesses suffering while still struggling to recover from lockdown. Jenny Sheridan, the third generation of her family to run Bridesworld liverpool, said: “When the work was first carried out, they managed to cement the shop shutters down and it took three days to open the shop. “The people working on the site were not helpful at all. “It’s also caused damp and damaged all the front of the shop. Rats were also getting in underneath. “one of my customers, who is 75 years old, fell as she was crossing the road and tripped on the raised bit. “It’s been going on for a long time. They promised the world but nothing got done.” Paula Towner, animal rescue Got a story? Call the newsdesk on 0151 472 2436 manager at the Animal Aid charity shop, said: “With all the raised manholes, dips and ramps, they’re like little speed bumps. It plays havoc with the suspension on the cars. It needs sorting out. “People are avoiding coming down here because the road is doing damage to their cars.” Tracey Williams, who works part-time at Dennis’s Hair Design, said: “When it rains, the road floods as the grids are not taking the water in, and I’ve seen elderly people fall on the raised section running down the middle of the road. “It’s just unsightly and it’s been going on for far too long. There are no yellow lines, so people are just parking anywhere. “I see lots of people in their yellow jackets taking pictures, but nothing seems to be happening. The way it is now, they’d have been better leaving it like it was.” Craig Chadwick, who works as a dog washer at Sweeps Dog Grooming, said: “It’s more of an eyesore than anything. It’s a bit uncivilised – it’s just a stretch of road with no road markings on it. “It feels like the raised ironworks are destroying the wheels of the car.” Jamie Morris, who works at County DIY, said: “All this work was done and they came back at night and ripped it up again. It’s been left like that for months. “You have the bottoms of the cars scraping it. No-one’s going to get any compensation for it.” A liverpool council spokesperson said it was about to appoint a contractor for the County Road scheme. A start date would be announced once legal terms and conditions had been arranged.

Far right National Rally’s Marine Le Pen and Paris’ socialist mayor Anne Hidalgo both officially launched their campaigns on Sunday in what were widely expected moves. Ms Hidalgo, 62, is mayor in Paris. Maria Mendiola One half of disco duo Baccara dies oNe of the members of Baccara, whose 1977 disco anthem Yes Sir, i Can Boogie, has died, her management company has said. Maria Mendiola, who was one half of the Spanish duo, was best known for her rendition of the hit song. Tony Denton Promotions confirmed the news of her death at 69 but could not give further information. Cristina Sevilla, who replaced Mendiola in Baccara after she stepped aside due to arthritis in 2008, expressed her gratitude on social media in a message written in Spanish. The hit track reached number three in one UK singles chart in 2020 when Scotland defeated Serbia in a euro 2020 play-off and team-mates sang along to it. Monsoons kill at least 17 ToRReNTiAL monsoon rains and mudslides hit areas in northwestern Pakistan, destroying homes and killing at least 17 people, police said. officer Mohammad Nawaz Said 11 bodies were recovered from the debris of mud and brick houses in the Tor Ghar district, and rescuers were searching for the remaining victims, which included women and children. Welcome everyone, Pope hints to leader PoPE Francis urged Hungary to “extend its arms towards everyone”, in a veiled critique of Prime Minister Viktor orban’s antimigrant policies. The pontiff made his comments starting a four-day visit to Central Europe, his first big overseas outing since intestinal surgery in July. Francis, 84, appeared in good form during his short visit to Budapest, presiding over a lengthy Mass for a crowd that organisers said reached 100,000 people. Francis spent seven hours in Budapest before moving on Sunday afternoon to a four-day tour of neighbouring Slovakia. The asymmetric itinerary suggested that Francis wanted to avoid giving Mr orban - the type of populist nationalist Francis frequently criticises - the political boost that comes with hosting a pope for a proper state visit ahead of elections next spring. Francis did meet Mr orban, whose refugee policies clash with his own call for welcome and integration for those seeking better lives in Europe. Mr orban has frequently depicted his government as a defender of Christian civilisation in Europe. Francis blesses a couple in Hungarian folk dress Saudi links in US shown up in papers The FBI has released a newly declassified document relating to logistical support given to two of the Saudi hijackers in the run-up to the September 11 US terrorist attacks. The document details contacts the hijackers had with Saudi associates in the US but does not provide proof that senior Saudi government officials were complicit in the plot. Released on the 20th anniversary of the attacks, the document is the first investigative record to be disclosed since US president Joe Biden ordered a declassification review of materials that for years have remained out of public view. The 16-page document is a summary of an FBI interview from 2015 with a man who had frequent contact with Saudi nationals in the US who supported the first hijackers to arrive in the country before the attacks. Last week, Mr Biden ordered the Justice Department and other agencies to conduct a declassification review and release what documents they could over the next six months. he had encountered pressure from victims’ families, who have long sought the records as they pursue a lawsuit in New York alleging that Saudi government officials supported the hijackers. The heavily redacted document was disclosed on Saturday night, hours after Mr Biden attended September 11 memorial events in New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Victims’ relatives had earlier objected to Mr Biden’s presence at ceremonial events as long as the documents remained classified. The Saudi government has long denied any involvement. The Saudi embassy in Washington said it supported the full declassification of all records as a way to “end the baseless allegations against the kingdom once and for all”. The documents are being released at a politically delicate time for the US and Saudi Arabia, two nations that have forged a strategic – if difficult – alliance, particularly on counterterrorism matters. In February, the Biden administration released an intelligence assessment implicating Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the 2018 killing of US-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi, but drew criticism from Democrats for avoiding a direct punishment of the crown prince himself. Victims’ relatives welcomed the document’s release as a significant step in their effort to connect the Flowers placed into the inscribed names of the victims of the 9/11 attacks at the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum, New York CHiP SoMoDeViLLA/ GeTTY attacks to Saudi Arabia. Brett eagleson, whose father Bruce was killed in the World Trade Centre attack, said the release of the FBI material “accelerates our pursuit of truth and justice”. Jim Kreindler, a lawyer for the victims’ relatives, said “the findings and conclusions in this FBI investigation validate the arguments we have made in the litigation regarding the Saudi government’s responsibility for the 9/11 attacks”.

Chloe McCardel, 36, was born and raised in australia and still lives there, but spends “two to three months of virtually every year” in the UK preparing for and taking part in her channel crossings. having first swum the famously treacherous 34km (21 miles) stretch of water in 2009, she has now completed it 41 times and is currently in new romney, Kent preparing for the three crossings which will take her past the current record of 43, which is held by Briton alison streeter. “the english Channel feels like my spiritual home so i have a draw to come back here every year,” she told the Pa news agency. a competitive junior swimmer in the pool as a teenager, Ms McCardel came to open water competitions after making a vow to herself to become “the best in the world at something”. she tried triathlon and running marathons before eventually turning to open water swimming, and immediately “fell in love” with the sport. “Being out in the natural environment and pushing my own limits, and not being confined to the pool or surrounded by chlorine, i just found it so liberating and such an incredible experience,” she said. Javid says no to vaccine passports Plans to introduce vaccine passports in England for nightclubs and other crowded venues have been scrapped in the latest of the Government’s coronavirus U-turns. Health secretary sajid Javid confirmed the proposals “will not be going ahead” on sunday, just days after ministers had defended the policy to sceptical MPs. Boris Johnson had previously announced that members of the public would be required to show proof they have had two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine in order to gain entry to clubs and other large-scale events in England. But following a backlash from Tory MPs, the Health secretary said the idea had been shelved. He told the BBC’s The andrew Marr show: “I’ve never liked the idea of saying to people you must show your papers or something to do what is just an everyday activity, but we were right to properly look at it. “We’ve looked at it properly and whilst we should keep it in reserve as a potential option, I’m pleased to say that we will not be going ahead with plans for vaccine passports.” The announcement came shortly after Health Secretary Sajid Javid the minister had appeared on sky news and told host Trevor Phillips a final decision had yet to be made. He said: “We haven’t made a final decision as a Government.” labour’s deputy leader said the rapid change showed that “the Government’s approach to Covid passports has been shambolic from the start”. angela Rayner said: “There has never been any clarity from ministers about what vaccine passports were supposed to achieve, how they would work and what was expected from businesses and workers. “Days ago, the vaccine minister stood before Parliament to confirm the introduction of Covid passports and stress their importance, now they’ve been scrapped. “This is the culmination of a summer of chaos from ministers and they urgently need to get a grip before winter.” But Mr Javid told Times Radio the decision was not a “wobble” based on fears that MPs may not have backed the Government. He said: “It’s not a wobble. We said we were going to look at this and look at it carefully and we set out what those plans were and the sectors that we were looking at. “But I think everyone agrees if you went ahead with something like vaccine passports, they are a huge intrusion into people’s lives so you’ve got to be really, really certain. That’s what you want to do. We have looked at it and whilst we keep it in reserve, I’m pleased to say that we will not be going ahead.” The hospitality sector welcomed the news. Michael Kill, chief executive of the night Time Industries association (nTIa), said: “We hope that businesses will now be able to plan for the future with some degree of certainty, regain confidence from customers and the workforce, and start to rebuild a sector that has consistently been at the sharp end of this pandemic.” Sara Davies Dragon’s dance tips Sara Davies has said she has been secretly looking to her Dragons’ Den co-star Deborah Meaden for tips ahead of her debut on Strictly Come Dancing. The entrepreneur and TV star, 37, who will take to the dancefloor when the show returns on Saturday, said she wanted helpful hints from previous contestant Meaden, but without letting on that she was going to be contestant. Davies told Hello! magazine: “I know Deborah loved every minute of the experience, so I’m hoping I’ll feel the same.” Waitrose in bag ban Waitrose is aiming to eliminate 40 million single-use plastic bags per year by removing them from deliveries and in-store collections. Bags for life, which cost 10p, will also be pulled from all major stores, to be replaced with a 50p reusable bag that is said to be twice as durable, is made from recycled materials and is also fully recyclable. the change will come into effect from september 27. Net zero job warning Up to 660,000 jobs could be at risk if the UK fails to transition to net zero carbon emissions as quickly as other countries, union leaders are warning. Jobs could be moved offshore to countries offering better green infrastructure and support for decarbonising industry, the TUC said. Its analysis suggested jobs at risk include 259,700 in manufacturing and 407,100 in supply chain firms .The regions with the most direct jobs at risk are North West, Yorkshire, the Humber and West Midlands.

In 2019, Wirral Council declared a climate emergency, a clear commitment to tackling perhaps the biggest challenge the human race has ever faced. But Labour councillor Liz Grey, chair of the council’s environment and Transport Committee, does not think the authority is going quickly enough to address this major issue. Cllr Grey said: “I feel like I’m fighting in a current trying to get the message across. “Look at the data around the world at the moment, this is massive, it’s the biggest thing in our lifetimes and people aren’t bothered.” Among her main frustrations were moves by opposition parties, mainly the Conservatives, to block key environmental policies. But Cllr Tom Anderson, leader of the Conservative group on the council, said Cllr Grey would achieve more if she stopped lecturing and started listening to people. Last month, the council’s Decision Review Committee agreed to bring in new parking charges and adopt a new standard £1 per hour rate, with a £5 per day maximum charge, for all council-run car parks. The council also stopped spraying and raking hoylake beach in 2019. Both decisions have faced Conservative opposition. The Labour councillor added: “The Tories will block any little move, little things like car parking charges which deter people from driving a little bit, not raking the beach, each on its own has a small BEST PRICE PAID People just are not bothered impact, but with a collective effort we would reduce greenhouse gas emissions as a borough and do our bit to keep to the Paris Agreement. “There is a much, much bigger problem people need to worry about, but I’m often accused of just making a fashion statement, that’s what some politicians think and ON 12 CRAFT WINES Plus 2 FREE wine glasses worth £18, & FREE delivery direct to your door!

On this, Cllr Grey said: “We need to be honest, we are trying to make it more difficult for people to drive, because it’s a bad habit. I know because I have it, we need to get rid of unnecessary journeys because many journeys we do are unnecessary. “Unless you have certain conditions or you’re heavily pregnant, you can cycle. If we have rolled out cycle lanes in 10 years time and if we’ve brought speed limits down I’ll be proud that we have better air quality and healthier people”. Another area of major importance is the huge regeneration plans for Birkenhead, which include top quality office space, more than 600 homes and a new home for Birkenhead Market. Cllr Grey said the use of solar panels for energy production and district heating networks to reduce energy consumption in the regeneration projects would be very important in the fight against climate change. Cllr Tom Anderson said: “There is more to do but you won’t achieve that by berating people. “I’m not sure what Cllr Grey hopes to achieve by her various statements this week. “Local councillors are elected to serve their residents and make sure decisions reflect their concerns. “Perhaps if Cllr Grey stopped lecturing and started listening, she would achieve more. She seems to be doing her best to cause division. What a shame.” Got a story? Call 0151 472 2436

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 ECHO 15 News Fitness is my world – yet I’ve just years left ADVERTISING FEATURE You’re better off with a Alan Deary’s shock diagnosis prompted him to take on a fundraising bike ride next month By ALAN WESTON ECHO reporter alan.weston@trinitymirror.com @alanweston An ex-army soldier who worked in health and fitness was devastated to be told he had only between two and three years to live. Alan Deary, 61, from Old Swan, led an active lifestyle having spent 16 years in the Army followed by roughly the same time training new police recruits in fitness and self-defence. But in 2019, he came down with a chest infection he couldn’t shake off, so he was sent for a CT scan. When the results came back, he was told over the phone he had an incurable lung disease called Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), which has a life expectancy of between two and five years. Although there are around 6,000 new UK cases diagnosed per year, very little is known about the condition. It mostly affects those in the age range of 70-75, which makes Alan more of a rare case. Alan, a grandad of three originally from Wavertree, said: “I’ve always been extremely active, so it came as a real shock when I was diagnosed with IPF. It’s a relatively unknown condition and even my GP didn’t understand or know much about it. “Obviously the first thing I did, which they always tell you not to do, is look it up on the internet. But I’m an analytical person and need to know how everything works so I did it anyway. “At least with cancer, you’ve a fighting chance of beating it, if it’s caught early enough. With IPF, there’s absolutely no cure, and very little effective treatment. “I was living in Cumbria when I was diagnosed, which prompted the move back to Liverpool as it meant I had better access to lots of specialist services.” Researchers have several theories about what might trigger IPF, including viruses and exposure to tobacco smoke. All forms are life-threatening, but early diagnosis and treatment can improve survival times. Alan said: “We’re all faced with our own mortality, but knowing when, that’s the hardest bit of the whole diagnosis and is very difficult to deal with.’’ In a bid to raise the profile and awareness of the disease, he is taking on a 100-mile bike ride to raise funds for the hospital treating him. The bike ride will take place in two 50-mile stages over two days, on the weekend of October 2 and 3. A fundraising page has been set up, which on Friday stood at £1,200. All the funds raised by Alan and his friends will go to Wythenshawe Hospital Charity. The hospital has a dedicated clinical, nursing and research staff providing care for patients with lung fibrosis and related conditions.

Jordan Pearson was found at his home on Cleveland Street, in Birkenhead, on the morning of Friday, September 3 and was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. While his family is still awaiting a post-mortem outcome, Jordan’s brother Tyler Pearson, 21, said he had been struggling with his mental health in recent weeks. Tyler described Jordan as a ‘loving’ big brother to himself and their two sisters who did not realise how much he was loved. He said: “I hadn’t seen Jordan for a while but every day he would go round and check on my nan. We’ve got two sisters and he would always make sure that they were OK. “He would do more than enough for anyone and would know if something was wrong with somebody without them even saying anything. “It’s been such a shock to everyone. We’re really struggling to come to terms with it all at the moment.” The brothers grew up with their nan in Birkenhead after losing their mum early, in 2007 when Jordan ‘Loving’ big brother found dead at home was just ten. Tyler said he believes losing his ‘mum and best friend’ had a lasting impact on Jordan’s mental health. “Trying to move on from that was quite tough. I was only seven at the time but I remember he and my mum were best friends because she was quite young when she had him,” Tyler said. “In a way they kind of grew up together like best friends rather than mother and son. We also lost our great granddad a few years ago who he was really close with so he’s been very isolated. “Covid hasn’t helped either and he’s had quite a few mental health problems. Sadly, I think the system Got a story? Call the newsdesk on 0151 472 2436 Jordan Pearson was found dead at his home in Birkenhead on September 3 GOFUNDME has let him down. “He called 111 a few weeks ago saying he didn’t want to be here any more but didn’t want to hurt his family. All that happened was he was detained under the Mental Health Act and the police let him go the next day. “Jordan needed that counselling, someone to talk to who was not part of the family. He never wanted to be a burden on anyone else and felt like he had to be there for his younger siblings rather than the other way round.” Tyler said the family is now trying to plan for the funeral but no postmortem exam has been carried out. The family have been told it could still be a while until a cause of death is recorded and Jordan’s body has not yet been released. Tyler is trying to raise money via GoFundMe to give Jordan the sendoff he deserves, but admits the family still don’t know what is going on. He said: “It’s really difficult not knowing what’s happened. We can’t plan the funeral or what date it will be as his body hasn’t been released. “My nan was hoping to get him a couple of white doves to fly at the funeral or some white horses to lead the procession. “He never really planned ahead for this so unfortunately there’s not much money for a proper send-off. “It’s devastating because Jordan reached out for help but didn’t get what he needed. It must have been so difficult for him to actually ask for it so we’re all heartbroken.” Free £1 TickeT Available at participating retailers Your cHance to win £100k If you’re feeling lucky, take a chance to be in with an opportunity to win big with this amazing offer!

facebook.com/theliverpoolecho Fan stabbed by man who blocked his view of England cup match MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 ECHO 17 Plumb Hysa News was jailed for nine years By luke traynor Chief Reporter luke.traynor@trinitymirror.com @LukeTraynorEcho A MAN stabbed a football fan in the toilets of a hotel, after the victim asked him to stop blocking the TV during one of England’s Euro 2020 games. Plumb Hysa, 30, of Bootle, knifed the 59-year-old man despite earlier seeming to have become friendly with the victim following a brief altercation. The victim had been at the Mill Hotel in Chester, as part of a stag do along with his friends on July 3, where they were watching England’s quarter-final clash against Ukraine. CCTV footage showed that at 7:53pm, shortly before the match began, Hysa was asked and gestured to move as he was blocking the TV. A court heard he agreed and everything seemed friendly with Hysa even going over to hug and take selfies with the victim as they cheered England’s four goals. But during the match the thug armed himself with a steak knife which he put under his baseball cap before transferring it to the waistband of his trousers. The victim then draped an England flag over Hysa and they were seen laughing together as they went to the toilet with their arms around each other. But once at the urinals the “atmosphere changed” before it “kicked off out of nowhere” and Hysa “ferociously” stabbed his victim three times. A witness who had been at the hotel with his wife had gone to the loo at about the same time and was in a cubicle when Hysa and the victim went to the urinals. He heard the two in conversation before hearing the victim say “put that knife down” before calling out “he has stabbed me”. The witness emerged from the cubicle and alerted a member of staff, who in turn alerted the hotel manager while police were called. Police arrived and during his arrest Hysa was left semi-conscious Sign up to the ECHO newsletter – scan the code above for instant access, or visit www. liverpoolecho.co.uk/ getanewsletter after being punched in the face by the victim’s friend. The victim was taken to the critical care unit to be treated for life-threatening injuries and he required urgent surgery after one of the wounds pierced the small bowel and caused internal bleeding, while one wound narrowly missed his heart. Hysa later pleaded guilty to wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and possession of an offensive weapon. He was jailed for nine years at Chester Crown Court on Thursday. Judge Patrick Thompson said: “You commenced a ferocious attack with that knife, during which you stabbed the victim three times, causing him serious injuries. “It’s a matter of luck, really, that he was not killed. “It’s clear you had lost all sense that night. You were intent on inflicting serious harm on anyone who came your way.” In a victim impact statement, the man said he still required hospital treatment two months on, he had had difficulty sleeping, and was forced to miss two weeks of work. Ian Henderson QC, defending, said: “There is a hard-working, decent man in there. “He and those around him are keen he pays his penalty to society and goes back to doing what he can.” GET YOUR FAVOURITE PAPER AT HALF PRICE * Order yOur cOpy straight tO yOur dOOr Or purchase at a retailer Of yOur chOice and yOu will save 50% there are twO easy ways tO Order yOur subscriptiOn and claim this great discOunt 1.

18 ECHO MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 @LivEchoNews ‘My grief will never News go away but talking about Dan keeps his memory alive’ Rachel Heggarty and her son Daniel Fleming, who tragically took his own life in November 2019 aged just 19 By REBECCA KONCIENZCY MyWirral Editor rebecca.koncienzcy@trinitymirror.com @RDKoncienzcy A mum has spoken of her constant grief after losing her son to suicide. Daniel Fleming, from Wallasey, Wirral was just 19 when he took his own life back in November 2019 and the heartache of his loss has never left his family. mum Rachel Heggarty, 43, has spoken to the ECHO about the sorrow of knowing Daniel will never go to university or enjoy nights out with friends and how she had to fight against blaming herself. She said: “ We are coming up to Dan’s second anniversary which is hard to believe that he has been gone for two years, the first year was a haze. “Once the shock wore off the grief came and that is constantly there but it comes in waves – good days and bad days. “The dreams are tough to deal with. I do take every day as it comes, it’s hard to know he isn’t here any more, for a split-second I sometimes think I have seen him while I’m driving, the mind plays tricks on you this makes me sad. “Dan would be in university now, doing the subject that he loved, geography. Since Dan passed, I have had to go through his things and pack away his belongings. “I read one of Dan’s A Level essays and, to say the least, no wonder he passed his A Levels with the grades he got. “I see the young ones now being able to go concerts and out at the weekend with their friends and I feel sad that Dan will never get to do this.” Rachel admitted there were moments when she blamed herself, but has now realised this was not the case and the best thing she can do moving forward is to always talk about Daniel. She said: “Daniel’s mental health rapidly went downhill. As a mother my job was to love and protect Daniel and I felt I let him down by not being able to give him the help that he needed, the help we got off the services were shocking. “The responsibility for me became even greater, but I learnt that blaming myself was not the answer, as parents we are naturally full of guilt. “I had come to realise that Daniel’s mind was too poorly. “my advice to any mum or family member who has gone through this is its no one’s fault, we will never understand the mind of someone who’s become so poorly, just be kind to yourself and take every day as it comes and to always talk about your passed loved one. “Grief is such a complex emotion, it’s an emotion that is literally a rollercoaster but the best thing I have found helps – is talking about Dan. “Since losing Dan I have had people blank me in shops, I have had people pretend to be on their phone so they don’t have to have to speak to me. “Losing a child has also alienated me in different ways, but on the flipside, I’ve also had people who have needed to reach out to me and have told me Grief is such a complex emotion... but the best thing I have found helps is talking about Dan Rachel Heggarty

facebook.com/theliverpoolecho MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 ECHO 19 News More prevention key for those in need A mum who stopped two people falling from the same motorway bridge in the space of a few hours is calling for more to be done to help those feeling suicidal. Jennifer Allinson, 44, a social worker from Wirral, was driving to work last month when she noticed a young woman on the flyover in front of her. Her first instinct was to slam on the brakes of her car, leaving it in the middle of the road, to help. Later that day she spotted a young man in the same spot, led him to safety and drove him to Arrowe Park Hospital. Speaking to the ECHO for World Suicide Prevention Day, Jennifer said “prevention” is key in helping people who feel suicidal or struggle with mental health. “It’s cost effective if you’ve got the preventions in place it will cost a lot less than it would be to be applying the interventions. “This is why we should be pushing for more third sector charities to be funded and why we should be pushing for statutory mental health services to be funded.” Inspired by her actions, Jennifer’s son Sonny, 26, will take on the Three Peaks Challenge on Oct 2 to raise money for mental health support group mANmIND.

She said: “The irony is that Daniel’s 21st birthday landed on Mother’s Day this year, which was difficult. “As a family on the first anniversary of him passing my family gathered at my house, some walked down to the town hall steps which is where Dan used to sit in his final days and weeks and they let off balloons, I stayed at home and cooked for everyone but being together as family helped, Dan is missed by so many.” Rachel said Daniel’s brother and sister, Tom, 22, and Honey, 19, have been a constant source of support. She said: “Tom and Honey are literally my heroes, without them two I don’t know what I would have done. “They have been so grown up and they are always positive, despite how sad and heartbroken we all are over losing Dan, they manage to make me laugh and smile every day. “I’m very proud of the kindhearted young people they’ve become. “To me, they will always be Tom, Dan and Honey.” Rachel also revealed what help is needed to stop other families going through the same heartache she has as she marked World Suicide Prevention Day, on Friday, September 10. She said: “What needs to be talked about is the prevention, that first sign that a family member or loved one is having suicidal thoughts, and to take it seriously. “I am not a mental health expert, I am Dan’s mum, but I believe if I had been allowed to be present with Daniel’s professionals while he was being assessed by the mental health teams, he’d have had more chance of being alive today, they kept me in the dark because he was 18, and Daniel became so withdrawn. I knew nothing of what went on in those meetings. I was made to sit outside. “The interventions need to start with that first referral or that first attempt of taking their life. “While he was waiting to go in to the session Dan used to say to me, ‘I will be going away for a while now mum, but when I come back I’ll be better’. “Dan honestly thought they were going to section him. But they didn’t. “At Daniel’s inquest, the coroner told me not to dwell on the 30 seconds it took for Daniel to take that ultimate action, but to cherish the 19 years I had with him.” Wild Science lab Head First Scalp Relief Shampoo (50ml, travel size) Brought to you by MudMaSky Mineral-Infused Double Cleansing Mask (full size) SubScribe and Save today at okbeautybox.co.uk *£7.50 offer is only available to new customers.

20 ECHO MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 @LivEchoNews News By ALAN WESTON ECHO reporter alan.weston@trinitymirror.com @alanweston Urban explorers gained access to an abandoned Merseyside school which has been empty for around 16 years. The footage was taken inside Margaret beavan School in West Derby, which closed in 2004 and has been unused ever since. Despite it being Grade II listed, the building on almonds Green has grown increasingly dilapidated and become the target of vandals, with firefighters called out on numerous occasions to tackle deliberate fires. In the video, the urban explorers can be seen wandering around what was the sports hall, with a basketball net still in place. They also find what looks like a small bicycle, and other objects scattered around. at one point, one of them says: “Guys I think homeless people have been staying here, or are staying here, and they’re just not back yet.” Elsewhere in the building, they find a lavatory block with toilet paper scattered everywhere. The video ends on a spooky note with one of them saying “he heard something” in the darkened, empty building. homeless are thought to have stayed Conservationists have been battling for years to preserve the building, saying it is an important example of Victorian architecture. Its historic features mean it was used as a film set for one season of popular CbbC show Young Dracula, after the school had been closed. The old school was designed and built in 1884 by architect James Francis Doyle. It was originally a private villa and was once called Eddesbury, and is thought to be the last substantial Victorian mansion to be built in West Derby. There have been a number of previous occasions when urban explorers have gained access to the building and filmed what they found. However it is hoped there could now be a brighter future for the historic building. Plans were revealed earlier this month to transform the former school into luxury apartments. The proposed redevelopment by Hassett Homes will also include 21 new homes and three refurbished coach houses within the three-acre grounds. Explorers seek ghosts of old school’s past Clockwise from top, the gates of the derelict former mansion, later a school; explorers on climbing frames in what appears to be a sports hall; a television monitor; an assortment of desk paraphernalia Looking to boost your bookings this Christmas?

facebook.com/theliverpoolecho The memorial bench for Janice Glassey and (below) Janice with her children Kerri, Colette and Peter MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 ECHO 21 News Bench for NHS worker desecrated nurse’s family express disgust By luke traynor Chief Reporter luke.traynor@trinitymirror.com @LukeTraynorEcho A MEMORIAL bench erected for a “much-loved and dedicated” nurse who died with Covid after fighting the pandemic on the frontline has been vandalised by “shameful” yobs. The family of Janice Glassey, who lost her battle with the virus in April last year, had the bench installed on fields near to Coronation Drive in Widnes, close to where she lived. The 66-year-old, who was a popular figure in Halton and worked visiting people’s homes and care facilities, fell ill three days before her retirement and died a month later with Covid-19. The mum-of-three had given 14 years of service to the NHS, helping very sick patients with end-of-life care as a healthcare assistant and was engaged to be married. The bench was placed after her work colleagues raised funds and a plaque fixed on it with words of tribute about her legacy with the NHS. But in recent weeks it has been defaced by youths with offensive words and crude pictures daubed on the bench. Ms Glassey’s fiance discovered the graffiti when he attended the spot where he likes to sit most days to remember his former partner. The nurse’s family have gone to the bench and used chemicals to wash most of the offensive material away, although some of it still remains. Kerri Glassey, Janice’s mum, told the ECHO: “We got a got a phone call on Tuesday, this week, from my mum’s A mAn who had been missing for a week has now been found. michael Dowling, pictured, was last seen by housemates on September 4 but, when a friend was unable to get in contact with him on Thursday, his family became increasingly concerned. Appealing for help, his sister-in-law said: “He’s just a normal lad, he likes playing on his PlayStation partner who was very upset. “I’m really upset about it too, especially as the plaque is very visible so it was clear it was a memorial bench. “It’s disrespectful. “I hope the parents of those who did it read about this.” Ms Glassey could have retired 12 months earlier, but she continued to work as she was keen to try and pay her mortgage off. Her family described her as “a bag of fun” who used to love going shopping and out for cocktails in Liverpool with her daughters and granddaughters. They said: “She just wanted to live life and was so loving and giving.” Kerri added: “We didn’t have this bench placed here to be drawn on, nor did we have it placed here for kids to sit on smoking weed. “We had it placed here for us as a family to sit and remember our mum, for passers-by to take a moment on a nice day to have a rest on their walk to whereever they’re going, basically for anyone to enjoy but definitely NOT for disrespectful people to use as a place to slag off and name-call others. “Absolutely disgusting behaviour and if the people who did this are reading this, then you should feel ashamed of yourself.” Missing Michael is found safe and taking care of his cats. He’s a massive Liverpool fan and used to work in the kitchen at Anfield.” His disappearance led to merseyside Police also issuing a public appeal for help locating the popular 34-year-old, who is from Southport. But after days of appeals, the force revealed yesterday that he had now been found, safe and well.

26 ECHO MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 @LivEchoNews Talkback My SHOUT Tom Evans tennis has always been his third favOurite sPOrt Why ‘gender critics’ are serving a double fault Back in the 1970s, the term “the British disease” was coined to describe a period of economic stagnation. While such a thing is obviously a long way in the past, now we’ve become susceptible to a new national malaise – Getting Really Mad Online about Things That Have Not Happened. Police taking down flags from pubs, poppy sellers being banned, christmas replaced by “Winterval” – you name it, it has not happened and British people have got really mad about it online. The latest example of this came in the wake of Emma Raducanu’s stunning US Open win. along with the predictable reactions – “well done Emma”, “wow Emma is good at tennis”, and “when you see Emma being good at tennis, it makes you realise foreign people are actually human” – I saw one along the lines of “imagine if a MaN played tennis against Emma, has anyone thought of that, hardly fair”. The intention was obvious from a glance at the rest of the tweeter’s output – they were making a point about transgender women in sports. I’m not saying there’s a simple answer to the question of trans women competing in women’s sport. In fact, the only ones saying there IS a simple answer are the reductive “gender critical” blowhards whose solution is apparently that trans women should be excluded altogether from professional sport. But it’s certainly not as simple as an average male tennis player deciding to identify as a woman in order to dominate the women’s game. We know this because nobody has done it. The best male athletes in the world are stronger and faster than the best female athletes. But when gender critics say “anyone born a man would be able to beat Emma Raducanu”, they’re guilty of underestimating the amount of talent and dedication behind this most amazing of stories. They’re guilty of denigrating every elite sportswoman in the world. and they’re guilty of getting really mad online about something that has not happened, of course. But they can’t help that – they’re British. Letters will not be included unless you include your name, full postal address and daytime telephone number (we prefer to use names of letter writers but you can ask for your name not to be published if you have a good reason). The Editor reserves the right to edit all letters. Shortage of lorry drivers can be solved with change of law HOW long will it be before this Government changes the law in order to let people with car and PSV licences drive Class 1 HGV lorries? This will be their answer to the chronic shortage of highly qualified and experienced drivers in the UK, the said shortage being caused by an unforgiveably reckless Brexit debacle, and not the so-called ‘pingdemic’. They will do this to enable the greed-driven capitalists to carry on making more and more money at the expense of the normal working class people. You may laugh at my prediction, and say it would cause death and mayhem on our roads. I’d say to you in my best Tory blabber: “And what?” Think about the thousands upon thousands of lives lost during the Covid pandemic. The infectious patients who were seeded into care homes, the lack of PPE and control regulations on the actual carers within these homes and the downright lies spouted by the Government. If they can ‘water down’ and assetstrip OUR NHS for profit, do you think they will care about a few motorway carnage scenarios? When will the people of this country realise that this Government looks upon them with utter and total contempt?

My wife and I shop, eat and walk all around our city taking in the history along the way. Lately I’ve become disappointed with the amount of litter we see. Also when we walk through covered areas and pass buildings with recess doorways, it’s clear that these places are used as a toilet. It does not present itself as a place to welcome visitors from all over the country and world if they notice the same faults that I see and smell. Can this be addressed? I hope so. Tony Bailey, Walton Brexit catastrophe is there for all to see JOHN Gouldson’s upbeat report on the state of the UK economy (ECHO Talkback, September 3) may find favour with some of the supporters of Brexit, but for the majority of the 17.4 million who voted to leave the EU – mainly the elderly – the economy was never a factor in their deliberations. There is no remorse in this group, which remains still largely convinced that independence from EU courts and control of Britain’s borders is worth whatever damage is caused by quitting the EU. The Brexit imperative of stemming the flow of migrants and refugees found its natural expression at the end of 2020, when the Brexit transition agreement came into force. In Parliament Square, the only shouts to be heard were “F*** the EU”. These voluble supporters of ‘global Britain’ found their voices perfectly at the prospect of withdrawal of foreign aid and the end of alliances with our continental neighbours, forged over generations. The European Court of Justice was the subject of especial disapprobation with its “suffocating verdicts on business rules, regulations and health and safety.” For these disaffected voters, the EU was all that stood between the UK becoming a sovereign, unregulated country – a new Victorian Britain. In 2021, in the real world, the integrated supply chains upon which our manufacturers and exporters have relied on for half a century are in the process of being trashed, the product of a Brexit campaign championed by cabinet hardliners who had to have the very institutions that have oiled the wheels of trade and industry in the UK, the single market and customs union, explained to them by Ivan Rogers, our former ambassador to the EU. As we are seeing from supply shortages which will only get worse, “upturns” can never be taken for granted – they can be more fragile than they look. powered by This is not a “recovery”, it is just the reopening of parts of the economy that have not gone under. Domestic growth has been built on cheap money – quantitative easing, property speculation and debt-driven consumption. Britain has been here before and it never ends well. The loss of EU migrant workers in the UK has affected haulage, hospitality, retail and construction – both predicted and predictable. The Government’s response to pleas to ease migrant rules for EU workers is, in effect, that people voted for this and will have to lump it. Brexit is a slow-burn catastrophe that will probably morph into an even more dysfunctional “no deal” as the EU concludes that Johnson and Lord Frost are undermining a treaty that they claim they only signed because of the pressure of parliamentary gridlock. As we have seen over the Northern Ireland protocol, which Frost now wants to “renegotiate” because the EU is being “unreasonable”, we are not to be trusted. “Flying the flag for Global Britain” is a desperate quest for post-Brexit trade. Like every other country, we trade mostly with our near neighbours, not the economies of China and India. Asia is not the place where we live – that place is Europe and the North Atlantic seaboard. As the PM’s former best friend, Dominic Cummings, commented: “Anyone convinced that Brexit was a good thing, must have a screw loose.” Hugh Rice, via email rOald dahl day 1.

facebook.com/theliverpoolecho First class comedy that’s full of heart alma’s not normal BBC2, 10pm COMEDIAN Sophie Willan has turned her award-winning stage show into this comedy that takes an unflinching look at class, mental health and addiction, while also making you laugh out loud. Written by and starring Sophie as Alma, it draws on her own real-life experiences spending some of her childhood in care, with a mother addicted to heroin and time spent as a sex worker. Set in Bolton, the series follows Alma as she tries to get her life back on track after being dumped by the useless Anthony. We first see her panting on route to the job centre, cycling as fast as she can in her pink furry jacket. On arrival she explains: “I’ve got no qualifications or job experience but I’ve got pizzazz.” They suggest a job as a ‘sandwich artist’. Flashbacks to her childhood explain how Alma has come to be in this situation – cut to a small girl climbing over drugaddled adults to find herself some breakfast. Lorraine Ashbourne is excellent as her Grandma Joan – a Silk Cut smoking, vodka drink- Lin (Siobhan Finneran) and Alma PICK OF THE DAY Leanne (Jayde Adams) Sophie Willan as Alma ing, animal print-loving whirlwind. Over in a psychiatric ward is her mum Lin (the tremendous Siobhan Finneran), who is battling addiction, has been sectioned for arson and loves ornamental pixies. Joining the cast of formidable women is Jayde Adams as Alma’s best mate Leanne, a butcher’s assistant with the voice of an angel and the sex appeal of Debbie Harry. They are all unruly and eccentric, leaving us with a comedy that will make you laugh but also has great heart.

It also includes an honest and emotional interview with Malcolm. He recalls his first appearance was in 1974 as a love interest for Mavis – playing a Spanish man called Carlos. Fortunately Carlos didn’t last long, and Malcolm returned years later as Norris, the nosey newsagent who became an icon.

On the menu is a slow roasted lamb shoulder, rainbow tomato crostinis, yoghurt panna cottas and mango caipirinha cocktails. Most people wouldn’t have the time or energy to make several fresh tomato sauces or garlic bread from scratch – or have kids that would be so helpful… but it’s all mouthwateringly gorgeous to watch.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 ECHO 39 facebook.com/theliverpoolecho FONTWELL TOMORROW REDCAR TOMORROW YARMOUTH TOMORROW WOLVERHAMPTON TOMORROW Going: Good-good to firm in places Going: Good to firm Draw: Middle to high numbers have a decided advantage on the straight course Going: Good-good to firm in places Draw: High numbers best on the straight course, especially in large fields. Going: Standard Draw: Little effect. Amor to conquer Yarmouth Amor De Mi Vida can secure her third victory of the year in the Follow @attheraces On Twitter Handicap at Yarmouth. The three-year-old has done Archie Watson proud so far this term, triumphing at Salisbury in May and Haydock in June, seeing her rating hiked from 70 to 80 after that second victory. Amor De Mi Vida has slipped 2lb since that second win, despite continuing to run largely with credit, just throwing in a couple of disappointing efforts along the way. The daughter of Dabirsim ran well enough last time out, beaten a length in third when seemingly appreciating the switch back to the minimum trip from six furlongs. Watson sticks at five furlongs here, and Amor De Mi Vida looks capable of making her mark here. Mehmo just got caught in the shadow of the post on his most recent run and looks capable of defying a career-high rating of 64 in the Download The At The Races App Handicap. The three-year-old has proved pretty hardy for Mick Appleby, and this will be his 17th start of the campaign. But his last three outings have yielded a win, a third and a second, so he is clearly not feeling the pace too much. That little spell of form has seen Mehmo rise to his current perch - and while he was eventually edged out in the dying strides recently, his mark does not look beyond him, particularly if the ground is on the quicker side again. Farhh To Shy can make it three wins in five Yarmouth outings, in the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap. Trained by George Margarson, the Farhh filly has ventured no further than the seaside track in her career so far - and she clearly likes it at this venue, judged on her victories. She struck gold on her most recent run last month, overcoming some trouble in running to win cosily on what was her handicap debut. The handicapper thought 80 was a reasonable starting point, but her lengthand-a-quarter verdict has merited a 5lb rise. Sucellus narrowly prevailed at Haydock just over a week ago, and can make it a quickfire double in the racingtv.com Handicap at Redcar. Once highly regarded when trained by John Gosden, he failed to realise the kind of potential he showed when winning in eye-catching style on his racecourse bow in December 2018 - and it has been a varied road since. Initially moved on to Roger Fell, for whom he failed to win in 10 starts, Sucellus has recovered winning form for Oliver Greenall this term. Rated 90 at one point, he triumphed off 71 at Haydock in July, rising to a mark of 76 before a couple of lacklustre efforts saw him dropped back to 73 to win at Haydock recently. He has been raised 2lb for that neck success but remains capable from that rating. Mick Pastor is two from two so far this term, and can add the Download The At The Races App Novices’ Chase at Fontwell to his tally. He benefited from his only rival falling at Worcester in June before getting the better of an odds-on favourite by 19 lengths in a three-runner affair the next time. 1.00 ATTHERACES.COM MARES’ NOVICES’ HURDLE (4) 2m 3f Winner £4,084 (8 run) SSR 1 2-7 Carole’s Tzarina (27) A Murphy 5 10-12....................J Quinlan 50 2 0-8 Charyn Canyon (27) B Case 5 10-12......................

42 ECHO MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 @LivEchoNews Sport / Tennis Queen hails former Liverpool champion The Queen sent new US Open champion emma Raducanu a message of congratulations and hailed her “remarkable achievement” after she became Great Britain’s first female grand slam winner in 44 years. A 6-4 6-3 win over Leylah Fernandez ensured the 18-year-old followed in the footsteps of Virginia Wade, who lifted the Wimbledon trophy in 1977, and she has been backed to win more majors by compatriots Tim henman and Greg Rusedski. Raducanu became the first qualifier to ever win a grand slam and was victorious in all 20 sets she played in qualifying and the main draw at Flushing Meadows. “I send my congratulations to you on your success in winning the United States Open Tennis Championships,” a message from The Queen to the teenager read. “It is a remarkable achievement at such a young age, and is testament to your hard work and dedication. “I have no doubt your outstanding performance, and that of your opponent, Leylah Fernandez, will inspire the next generation of tennis players. I send my warmest good wishes to you and your many supporters. Anders Borg, organiser of the Liverpool International Tennis event and the man behind the junior tournament in Wavertree won by a 12-year-old Raducanu in 2015, said: “You could tell right away, even at the tender age of 12 years old, that she was going places even though she lost a few early rounds at Junior Wimbledon. “She was super nice, a really down to earth kid and a dream come true for the LTA who has supported her over the years. “She mentioned our event in Liverpool during a recent press conference, which just proves how important these junior events are for the kids and for Liverpool. “We have another two weeks scheduled at Wavertree in November once again, and hope Liverpool City Council can support us a little as we are putting Liverpool on the map in the most global of sports.” henman, who reached the semi-finals of the US Open in 2004, had been a constant source of support for Raducanu courtside in New York and believes more titles will follow her debut major win. “What she has achieved, (appearing in a) second grand slam and the way she has gone about it, she will win more of these, she is that good,” he told Amazon Prime. “This is not some flash in the pan or fairy tale. She is playing top-five tennis. her world will be turned upside-down but she has good people around her and it will be a hell of a ride if she can stay injury-free.” Rusedski was a runner-up at Flushing Meadows in 1997 and, like his fellow Amazon Prime pundit, is sure this is only the start for the player from Kent. he added: “A star was born tonight. The first set of tennis was the best set of tennis I have seen in a women’s final for a long time.” emma Raducanu with Anders Borg in Liverpool in 2015 emma’s perfect 10 as she becomes us open winner CANU believe it? By eleanor crooks Emma Raducanu vowed to keep her free-swinging and carefree approach to tennis after pulling off one of the great sporting feats with victory at the uS Open. Winning grand slam titles is supposed to be hard - just ask andy murray - but his 18-year-old compatriot did not so much clear all the usual hurdles as sidestep them altogether, going home with the trophy in just her second major tournament. That was an unprecedented feat, as was the fact she won 10 matches at the tournament after coming through qualifying, all of them in straight sets. Raducanu’s 6-4 6-3 victory over fellow teenager Leylah Fernandez in the final made her the first British woman since Virginia Wade, who was watching from the stands, 44 years ago to win a slam singles title, and the first in new York since Wade in 1968. Raducanu is yet to win a match on the WTa Tour and little over three months ago she was a full-time schoolgirl completing her a-levels, with competitive tennis having taken a back seat for more than a year. But the teenager’s extraordinary talent was evident from an early age and she showed in her run to the fourth round of Wimbledon this summer that a big future lay ahead. Raducanu said: “I’ve always dreamed of winning a grand slam. You say, ‘I want to win a grand slam’, but to have the belief I did, and actually executing, winning a grand slam, I can’t believe it. “I first started when I was a little girl but I think the biggest thing that you have visions of, for me it was just winning, the winning moment, and going to celebrate with your team in the box. That’s been playing in my head a couple of nights. I’ve fallen asleep to that.” Raducanu’s run has been marked by an almost preternatural calmness, which included shutting out the excitement and hype her achievements have generated back home. The teenager has been inundated with congratulatory messages, including from the Queen, but she said: “I still haven’t checked my phone. “I have absolutely no idea what’s going on outside of the little world that we’re in here. We’ve just been in the quiet room, just enjoying the moment, taking it all in. I think today we just really need to shut out from everything, just enjoy it as a team, because it was a team effort. “I have no idea when I’m going home. I have no idea what I’m doing tomorrow. I definitely think it’s the time to just switch off Emma Raducanu with her US Open trophy and (inset below) after hitting her winning ace from any future thoughts or any plans, any schedule. I’ve got absolutely no clue. Right now, no care in the world, I’m just loving life.” much was made of Raducanu’s unfortunate retirement at Wimbledon with breathing difficulties but the teenager quickly put it behind her and used it as a springboard to this incredible feat. She worked hard on being physically strong enough to compete at the top level and, through a series of matches first at lower-tier events and then at Flushing meadows, made leaps forward with each one. She said: “at the beginning of the grass courts, I was coming fresh off my exams. I had three weeks to practise before my first tournament. I just built up every single match, every single win. “I thought Wimbledon was such an incredible experience. Fourth round, second week, I couldn’t believe it. I thought, ‘What a great achievement’. “But I was still hungry. I was working hard after the grass. I didn’t have much time off. With each match and tournament, I think I’ve really built in terms of confidence, in terms of my game.”

Willie Kirk’s team were well beaten in the Women’s Super league as the londoners recorded 27 shots on a disappointing afternoon for the Toffees. In a now deleted post, Ismailov, who has been in his position since 2020, shared the one-word tweet late in the second half. Everton went behind after 27 MICKY MELLON admitted that his Tranmere side’s defeat at Rochdale on Saturday was difficult to take. Danny Cashman’s late winner earned Robbie Stockdale’s hosts all three points in Greater Manchester. Tranmere hit the post twice, but it proved to be a frustrating afternoon at Spotland. Rovers manager Mellon said: “It was a game that was going minutes to a Fran Kirby goal before Samantha Kerr grabbed a brace, scoring early in the second half and again on 74 minutes. Soon after, Bethany England completed the reigning champions’ 4-0 rout and the result leaves Kirk’s side bottom having lost their opening game of the season against manchester City at Goodison Park by the same scoreline. It is not the start fans were expecting with hopes high following last season’s fifth-placed finish. Nine new signings have been made, including the return of Toni Duggan following spells with Barcelona and atletico madrid in Spain, and the Blues had been tipped to impress. Ismailov, who was appointed to be decided by one of those types of moments and I believe both teams had them. Unfortunately, it was us that made the mistake which proved to be the difference between the two teams. “At the end, we had a great opportunity to equalise and we hit the post for the second time in the game. It is a sore one to take, the game was always going to be decided on one moment and unfortunately it has gone against us. “Scoring the first goal when to the club’s board of directors in July, is also on the club’s stadium board, a post he took up when first joining Everton in 2019. Everton manager Willie Kirk said: “Its a difficult result to take. We’d worked on a lot during the week in terms of improving on last week’s performance, and for large parts of the game we did that. “We showed good game management after conceding a disappointing goal and went into half time at 1-0. I told the players not to lose the game within the first 10 to 15 minutes of the second half, but ultimately their second goal is what killed us. “The players were down, obviously. If we look at the season we’ve now got 60 points to coming to places like Rochdale will always give you a better chance but we were unable to do that. “The first goal has won the match. If you are not going to get that goal, you need to make sure you are stubborn and don’t give anything away. We blinked first and gave away the first mistake and Rochdale took their opportunity. “We gained an opportunity after this and we didn’t take ours to get ourselves something from the game. That play for, and we need to start picking them up very, very quickly. “With the players we have the target still has to be top three. I firmly believe that we’ll see big improvements after the international break. We might have been dealt a rough hand with the fixture list but we were excited by it. We didn’t write off the first two games by any means. “The next game out against Birmingham is a must-win, even this early in the season.

Liam Watson’s team nearly found an equaliser minutes later, but the chance fell to centre-back Chris Doyle, who couldn’t keep his volley from flying over the crossbar. Whilst port put Brackley under serious pressure towards the end of the match, it was the hosts who went closest in the second half, hitting the bar from a Lee Ndlovu header. the FA Vase began this weekend and a host of Merseyside clubs progressed from the first qualifying round. Amongst those to win were Skelmersdale united and AFC Liverpool. the former emphatically swept aside retford FC, putting nine past the Nottinghamshire-based team, conceding only one in the process. Whilst Michael howard and Elliot Morris both netted hat-tricks, arguably the most impressive goal was scored by omar Ibrahim who, just six minutes after coming on, let the ball roll across him before curling the it into the far corner from around 25 yards. AFC Liverpool had a tougher tie, beating Charnock richard 5-3 at the Marine travel Arena in Crosby. the match was set alight early on as Daniel Cockerline scored his ninth goal in 10 matches. the opposition then equalised but weren’t level for long thanks to a looping header by Jesse Dowling. After coming on for Cockerline at half-time, James McGrane was soon involved when his shot rebounded out to Billy McCarthy who smashed into the net to put his side two goals ahead. Charnock richard continued to attack despite the deficit and scored through Luke Gibson but paul Speed then stretched the hosts’ lead again before Charnock richard pulled another back through Brad Carsley. the closing moments were nervous for Chris Anderson’s team until Jesse Dowling got his second in injury time to seal the win. runcorn town and Burscough also progressed in the FA Vase, however Cammell Laird 1907, St helens town and Litherland rEMYCA all went out. In the Northern premier League premier, Warrington town took their tally to 16 points from eight matches due to a victory over Gainsborough trinity in which Matthew Grivosti got the only goal of the game – his third in as many starts. one division lower, City of Liverpool came away from Gorsey Lane with a 3-2 win over Warrington rylands, in a match that the purps had to play for an hour with 10 men as a result of Louis Corrigan receiving his second yellow card on 32 minutes. the visitors’ goals came from Freddie potter, Nathan Burke and Jack hazlehurst, whilst rylands’ strikes came courtesy of Stephen Milne and Lewis Earl. the home team also had a man sent off when Warren Gerrard was booked twice in quick succession at the end of the match. Marine, runcorn Linnets and prescot Cables also took three points this weekend, whilst Widnes and South Liverpool could only draw.

44 ECHO MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 @LivEchoNews EVERTON v BURNLEY Dwight McNeil scores for Burnley at Goodison Park last season Dyche praises progress of Blues target Dwight By maRK sTamIfORTH BurnlEy are yet to see the best of Dwight Mcneil as the midfielder prepares to make his 100th Premier league appearance in the Clarets’ clash with Everton at Goodison Park. The 21-year-old has earned increasingly rave reviews for his performances, topped by a superb goal in the equivalent fixture last season that sealed the three points. Dyche has seen Mcneil evolve into one of the top-flight’s hottest properties since his debut in 2019 and believes he can still add more to his game. Dyche said: “Dwight has been fantastic and I’ve been saying it for months and years – he started young and he progressed to earn the right to be a regular in the side. “I still think there’s more there, but I think he’s a young player and to amass that amount of appearances so quickly is a great achievement.” Mcneil has been a virtual ever-present in the side since his first start against West Ham in December 2018, missing only two games in the three subsequent years. And his displays have inevitably earned the attention of a number of rivals, with Everton themselves persistently linked with a potential £25million bid in the new year. Dyche added: “Players become top players because they are consistent and because they still offer something even more even on their quiet days. “I think he could just raise that consistency for the full 90 minutes. He can raise the consistency and deliver key moments, which he’s certainly got in him. “He’s got the framework to work on, and it’s about working on the details of his game.” Dyche’s men went into the international break on the back of picking up their first point of the season against leeds and the Burnley boss is relishing another opportunity to head to one of his favourite venues. “It’s a more traditionalstyle stadium and there’s a lot of history there, and it’s certainly a place that I enjoy Sean Dyche going to,” added Dyche. “I like the traditional type of stadiums. There is that tightness and that compact feel to the ground, but it’s something we are used to ourselves.” We want to spend – but have to manage the rules blues boss’s confidence in future window activity By PHIL KIRKBRIDE Everton FC reporter philip.kirkbride@reachplc.com @PhilKEcho Rafa Benitez says farhad Moshiri wants to back him in future transfer windows – but accepts everton must “manage the rules” to allow the club to spend. the Blues paid out the least of all 20 Premier League clubs in transfer fees this summer, spending less than £2m on five additions. everton headed into the window, hoping to arm the Blues boss with a budget that would have allowed him to secure a number of prime targets but financial fair play regulations meant the Blues’ business was significantly restricted. Benitez, however, is in no doubt that Moshiri wants to arm him with a transfer kitty and that the club’s majority shareholder ‘wants to spend’ on everton’s squad “My life as a manager has normally been with teams where we did not have too much money and we had to sell players to bring players,” Benitez said. “normally when you do that you sell good players and have to be sure the new players can perform at the same level. that is not easy. “that was a constant, apart from a couple of seasons, where i had to sell to buy. “Here it was more or less the same. We have to sell to buy players. “But i cannot say anything because the owner is ready to spend money and he showed that in the last year, even with the commitment with the new stadium. “So now i have owners who want to spend but we have to be sure we can manage the rules to do it the best way possible to be allowed to spend. “i cannot say anything because they spent a lot in the last three or four years. Hopefully we can manage it better and then have money in January or in the future.” Benitez says that while the current rules around spending, helps prevent football clubs folding, they also help the established elite clubs continue to improve. the everton boss says the regulations might need to be relaxed in order for a greater number of clubs to spend more freely. “it is very complicated,” he said. “i had the experience in Spain where a lot of clubs that were struggling had financial problems and then disappeared. “the rules allow a lot of clubs to keep competing. at the same time, the way the rules are at the moment allows the strongest team to get stronger every year. it is about finding the right balance between spending if your income is big and i do not know the exact rules, only that the strongest teams are spending more money because they can bring in more money with sponsors or whatever. “Maybe they need to change a little bit to allow more teams to spend more money if they can support that. “We are where we are. We have good owners who want to spend money and we have to show we are ready for the next window and then we can do it.” Benitez became the fifth permanent managerial appointment of

So does the Spanish coach believe that the club’s difficulties with financial rules this summer, will afford him more time in the Goodison hot-seat than a number of his predecessors? “I have enough experience in football to understand the situation,” he said. “As I have said before, now we are lucky to have owners who want to spend money and we have to find a way to do it properly. “They know we are working really hard to improve the players we have and improve every individual player and the team as a team. The fans know and appreciate that. “They know how the team finished last year and can see the difference in commitment and style of football. Everything is about improving what we have. “At the same time, we cannot talk about that in three months if we do not perform. The best way to convince everyone is to show we can challenge for something important.” By ADAM JONES Sports Reporter adam.jones@reachplc.com @adam_jones94 Salomon Rondon has described the stress of his transfer deadline day move to Everton. The striker completed his late switch to Goodison Park two weeks ago just before the summer window shut, putting pen-to-paper on a two-year deal with the option of a third. The 31-year-old has been in training with his new teammates over the last few days and will hope to be involved in some capacity when Burnley visit merseyside this evening. But the Venezuela international has described how stressful it was for him while waiting to see whether he would complete a move from dalian Professional. Rondon said: “To be honest the deadline was horrible because everything was fixed in the five hours before the deadline. It was really stressful so I was really happy when everything was done, so were my family and kids. “I was in Spain training on my own waiting for something, and when I finished the training I got a call from Rafa to come. “He said ‘be ready because you need to make some tests’ so I finished the training and saw everything was going well. I had my lunch, signed a contract and was ready.” Rondon was initially called up by Venezuela to take part in their international fixtures over the course of the recent break. However, the striker has explained that if he had travelled for his country’s matches, then he wouldn’t have been able to sign for Everton – so there was a decision to be made. “Every player in the world loves to play for their national team,” he added. “In this case, I had many issues with my Chinese team so I had to wait until I had decided my future in the last few days (of the transfer window). “I was waiting and waiting. The national team called me but I told them I had the chance to go to another team so I needed to wait. “I said that if I could fix it (the transfer) then I would try to go. If not, I could do nothing. “like every player in the world, I love to play for my national team - whether it’s against argentina and messi or Colombia or any country. “For me, it is a pleasure to play for my country, but with the covid situation in South america and the restrictions, it Salomon Rondon after the unfortunate leg-break incident with James McCarthy PETER BYRNE/PA Get the latest Blues news to your inbox Sign up to the ECHO EFC newsletter – www. liverpoolecho.co.uk/ getanewsletter is not easy and you have to quarantine. “I did quarantine in China and it is not easy.

The Venezuela international, then playing for West Brom, was visibly shaken by the incident at the time – and has described how badly it affected him in the following days. Rondon said: “That incident was important in my life.

Delph picked up the injury in training ahead of Everton’s Carabao Cup tie with huddersfield Town last month. boss benitez has described the midfielder as “unlucky” to have suffered the dislocation and though he was reluctant to put an exact timescale on Delph’s return, he conceded it could be over a month before he is fit to play again. “i expect he will be out for some weeks,” benitez said. “i don’t want to say exactly how long but between four to six weeks. Fabian Delph That is what they told me.” “he was unlucky,” benitez added, when confirming the injury was picked up at Finch Farm. “i know people talk about him not doing well or having injuries, and i had the impression when i came he was not a player who did not play much because of injuries. “but i have no doubt about his quality and i will say his commitment in every training session from day one was really good.” benitez has already gone on record to confirm he was ready to sell Delph earlier in the summer but the midfield made it clear he wanted to stay at Goodison for the final year of his contract and work under the new manager. The Spanish coach had been impressed with the 31-year-old’s attitude and application. “he was really positive,” benitez said about Delph, before this latest injury setback. “he was working hard and i was pleased to give him a chance. The injury was bad luck in the training session. he was feeling well and i thought he could give us experience and quality.” Delph has been dogged by injury since joining from Manchester City in the summer of 2019, managing to play only 25 times in the premier League for the blues. By PHIL KIRKBRIDE Everton FC reporter philip.kirkbride@reachplc.com @PhilKEcho James RodRiguez must strike a “balance” between playing his normal game and delivering more of what Rafa Benitez wants if he is going to force his way back into the everton side. Rodriguez reportedly told followers on Twitch on Friday night that he is ‘ready’ to play against Burnley tonight but Benitez says he is a “little bit behind the others”. The Colombian was made available for transfer during the summer window but despite interest from Porto, aC milan and istanbul Basaksehir, a move failed to happen and he remains at goodison. Rodriguez was a guaranteed starter under Carlo ancelotti, when fit, last season but his prospects have altered dramatically with the appointment of Benitez. The spanish coach recognises Rodriguez talent but wants his forward players to offer as much off the ball, as they do on it. Benitez says Rodriguez must meet him in the middle if he is to put himself back in the frame to start games again. “We know his strengths,” Benitez said. “He’s a player with a really good left foot. We know the weaknesses that he has too. “He has to show his strengths on the pitch and at the same time improve his weaknesses. “i don’t expect him to change his style but we need to find a balance between what he can give to the team and what we are expecting from him. “it depends on the team-mates around him and they are doing so well that he’s now in a different position to them. “He has to keep pushing if he wants to be in the team.” everton have made an unbeaten start to life under Benitez, with Rodriguez yet to play having been forced to isolate. “at this moment he’s training well but the rest of the team is a bit ahead of him,” the everton boss added. “it’s not about how far off he is because of him, it’s about how far he is because the others are doing well.

While the fixture list might have been kind, having faced southampton, Leeds and Brighton so far, the former Liverpool manager is predicting much better things to come. “i am really pleased. We are doing well, the team in this period is very good with their commitment and the way they are playing,” he said ahead of monday’s visit of Burnley. “We are scoring goals, we had a clean sheet (against Brighton last time out) so there are a lot of possibilities. “But it is still too early because we have to expect even more from this group of players as they have the quality and right mentality, so they will be better. “in football sometimes the

Everton were drawing 1-1 with the Championship outfit when Moise Kean was sent off just on the hour mark. However, despite being seen to be limping, Iwobi remained on the field to help ensure the toffees won and progressed. While the nigeria international stayed to aid the team as Andre Gomes teed up Andros townsend who grabbed the winner on 79 minutes, Davies too had kept going before being substituted for Lucas Digne. Benitez lauded the pair in his programme notes for Monday’s visit of Burnley and said: “I want to say how much I liked the character and determination of Alex Iwobi when he was hurt against Huddersfield but stayed on the pitch to help his teammates. “tom Davies, too, had a problem in his quadriceps but kept working so hard.” While the League Cup game is Davies’ only appearance of the season so far, the Spaniard was keen to highlight the 23-year-old’s contribution which set up a third round tie with Queens Park rangers at Loftus road. Iwobi, meanwhile, started in the 2-2 draw at Leeds while he came on against Southampton and Brighton. the playmaker’s 20-minute cameo drew praise from supporters, with his neat touches, positive running and incisive passes proving huge as Everton hung on for a 2-0 victory at the Amex Stadium. Benitez was also pleased with the team’s first clean sheet at Brighton two weeks ago after the toffees conceded a sloppy goal at home to Southampton on the opening day before letting in two more at Leeds. the Everton boss hailed the entire side’s ability to defend from the front against the Seagulls, with the forwards working hard to stifle the opposition backline, and believes his team are playing entertaining football on the attack. “We had our first clean sheet at Brighton and that was important for the players at the back,” he said. “Some goals we conceded in the opening games could have been prevented. that is the responsibility of all of us – but defenders and goalkeepers gain confidence from clean sheets. “the attackers are doing really well, not only because of the goals but also their overall contributions to the team. “At Brighton, they worked hard to stop our opposition from building attacks in the way we wanted. “the midfielders, as well, were disciplined. their energy was amazing. “When you put all this together, along with the desire we are showing, the signs are positive. If the organisation and work rate are strong, the chance to win games increases. “Also, from a solid structure, the football can be creative and enjoyable to watch.” After facing Burnley tonight, the Blues travel to Aston villa on Saturday.

Road to recovery. YNWA.” That Elliott was already looking to the future spoke volumes of the determination, spirit and character that has seen the remarkable teenager barge his way into the Liverpool first team. And they are qualities on which he must now lean upon as he begins what is likely to be a long rehabilitation after suffering a horror injury here against Leeds United. It was obvious from Mohamed Salah’s reaction – instantly waving his arms at referee Craig Pawson to stop the game while urging medics on to the field – that something had gone badly wrong. The challenge from Pascal Struijk may not have been malicious but it was an illadvised one, the Leeds substitute strongly sliding in from an angle to win the ball Deadly duo..Thiago celebrates with scorer Fabinho BY IAN DOYLE with Elliott’s left leg being twisted in the ensuing tangle. After lengthy treatment, Elliott departed on a stretcher, still sufficiently aware to applaud the Leeds supporters who gave him a warm ovation as he headed along the touchline. Incredible. There will be debate over whether such an injury was an inevitability given the subtle change in emphasis for officials to not penalise every rough challenge. Indeed, Pawson had initially waved played on with Leeds in possession until it became abundantly clear Elliott was in a bad way. Only after the intervention of VAR Darren England did Struijk see red. Beyond doubt, though, is Klopp will for some time be robbed of the Premier League’s breakout star at a time when he was continuing to emphatically justify the faith of his manager. By lining up at Elland Road, at 18 years 161 days old Elliott became the youngest midfield player ever to start three consecutive league games for Liverpool. Astonishing, yes. But surprising? Not at all, further evidenced by his confident performance in helping giving Concern and distress is clear after Harvey Elliott’s injury rui vieira/ap Liverpool the platform from which they eventually won 3-0 to maintain their unbeaten start to the season. The celebrations, though, were subdued at the final whistle. Liverpool will miss their latest emerging talent – and Elliott will return stronger and more determined than ever to make his mark at Anfield. We wish him well. 2 Thiago and Fabinho combine again The outcome at Elland Road should really have been a formality from the moment the teamsheet dropped. There, alongside Fabinho in the midfield, was Thiago Alcantara, the Spaniard making his first start of the season. On the nine previous occasions the duo had started alongside each other in the engine room, only Sadio Mane’s controversially disallowed goal at Goodison last season prevented a 100% record. And both ensured their unbeaten record together moved into double figures with impressive displays. Fabinho notched only his fourth goal for Liverpool when prodding home at the second attempt five minutes into the second half after Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner was headed down by Virgil van Dijk. And the game was made completely safe in injury time when Thiago shimmied inside the area and rolled the ball across for Sadio Mane to thrash home. Remarkably, it was the Spaniard’s first direct assist as a Liverpool player. Fabinho’s display was all the more commendable given he had to negotiate much of the game while on a yellow card following a 16th-minute booking. But the Brazilian’s discipline and positional nous allowed the Reds to dominate the midfield battle in which Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips was comprehensively subdued. And Jordan Henderson’s lively cameo was another positive, albeit coming in circumstances nobody would have wanted. 3Time to enjoy Salah Maybe the Leeds United fans knew what was coming. From the first whistle,

facebook.com/theliverpoolecho MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 ECHO 49 leeds united 0 liverpool 3 Klopp sounds opposition to ‘game flowing’ reds boss questions new directive again Liverpool players celebrate Sadio Mane’s third goal Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah was the target for jeers whenever the ball landed at his feet. If it was an attempt to unsettle the Egyptian, then the Elland Road faithful were mistaken. Sorely, sorely mistaken. This was a landmark afternoon for Salah in more ways than one. Yes, there was the notable achievement of becoming only the 30th player to score 100 Premier League goals when knocking in Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross from the right on 20 minutes. But his outstanding overall performance, in the first half in particular, showcased a player at the very top of his game. Certainly, Leeds left-back Junior Firpo will have sleepless nights having been given the runaround by the Egyptian. Salah wasn’t exactly given much Salah celebrates his 100th Premier League goal protection from the officials who, at least early on, weren’t inclined to punish many misdemeanours against the Liverpool man. He could have got distracted. Instead, Salah brushed himself down and responded with a 17th goal in his last 21 away games. Remarkable. Of course, the longer there is no resolution to talks over a new contract, the more speculation will grow over his future. For now, though, Liverpool fans – and the Premier League – can simply enjoy Salah at his freeflowing, confident best. 4Mane and the transfer question Until his injury-time strike, it had appeared one of those days for Sadio Mane. The Senegalese had found new and creative ways to spurn chances, whether it be having a shot blocked, forcing a save, screwing efforts narrowly wide or, in the first half, ballooning a close-range effort that seemed easier to score. And while there will be understandable concern over such profligacy, Liverpool supporters should not be fooled. This isn’t the same Mane who struggled for large parts of last term, the forward reinvigorated and rehabilitated by his much-needed summer of rest. However, question marks will remain over Liverpool’s strength of depth in attack. While Roberto Firmino and Takumi Minamino missed out here through injury, there was still no space for Divock Origi in the 20-man squad. The sickening blow for Harvey Elliott, who could be an option on the right flank, has placed the situation into sharper focus. Liverpool will wait until the youngster’s full prognosis, but a lengthy spell on the sidelines is inevitable. Klopp spoke before the weekend that the Reds have yet to determine their course of action once Salah and Mane disappear in January for the Africa Cup of Nations. But the Reds may now have no other choice than to dip into the transfer market in the New Year. By PAUL GORST Jurgen Klopp has reiterated his opposition to a new premier league directive to ‘let the game flow’ following Harvey elliott’s serious injury at leeds. The 18-year-old suffered a suspected dislocated ankle after a poor challenge from pascal Struijk on the hour mark of the 3-0 win for the reds at elland road on Sunday afternoon. goals from Mohamed Salah, Fabinho and Sadio Mane took the reds level with Chelsea and Manchester united at the top of the premier league, but the game was overshadowed by the ugly incident that saw elliott taken straight to hospital. Before the season started, the premier league’s refereeing chief, Mike riley, said there would be a move towards “letting the game flow” and not penalising “trivial offences” in 2021/22. And after the win against Burnley last month, Klopp questioned the calls made by the authorities to allow more leniency for physicality. The liverpool boss says he is still of that opinion but stopped short of suggesting the new guidance was to blame for elliott’s likely long-term injury. “look, I don’t think the situation today [for elliott] had anything to do with that [new directive],” Klopp said. “When I speak about this, honestly, do me a favour, nobody puts what I say now (in headlines) together with the situation today, because otherwise I won’t speak (in the future). “The problem with letting the game flow is the players naturally now try to use that. “It’s a normal thing. If you don’t get whistled, why wouldn’t you try it? “players don’t want to injure each other but they just go in harshly or hard. “[If] the main problem last season was that the game didn’t flow enough then I saw a completely different season last year. “If the one change from last season now is to ‘let the game flow’ then where does it lead to? That’s the problem, it’s not easy for the referees, it’s not even a rule to ‘let the game flow’ and these kinds of things. “england was always famous for referees not blowing the whistle like other countries but we are already used to that. now we go to the next level and for what reason? I don’t understand. “If you ask me I will give my opinion, it’s okay. It’s only my opinion.” elliott is set for a scan on Monday to determine the extent of the damage but will not be involved when liverpool entertain AC Milan in the Champions league on Wednesday night.

By PAUL GORST LFC Correspondent paul.gorst@reachplc.com @PTGorst Liverpool’s sunday night trip back across the pennines was likely a sombre one, despite this statement performance at elland road. The reds ran riot for the most part as they put their hosts leeds United to the sword with a classy and supremely professional display in deepest Yorkshire. And while this 3-0 win contained plenty that was worthy of celebration for Jurgen Klopp and his players, the sickening injury to young Harvey elliott will instead linger as the squad come to terms with the loss of the gifted 18-year-old. pascal struijk’s slide tackle from behind on the hour mark was dangerous and while the first-half substitute will surely not have set out to hurt the teenager, elliott has now had the course of what should have been a breakout season at his boyhood club grotesquely altered as a result of his recklessness. Mohamed salah’s immediate reaction and the subsequent one of the shocked substitutes spoke volumes about the severity of the incident, with those in the packed press box – and those watching at home – understandably unable to be shown a replay of the horrific moment. “it is a bad injury,” was Klopp’s succinct summary ahead of a Monday morning scan for elliott. Having seen Manchester United, City and Chelsea all emerge with three points on saturday, it was important the reds followed suit here on their first experience of a full house at elland road in the premier league since February 2004. With two of the last three titles having been won by point tallies that threatened to break the 100 barrier, every one dropped could be vital, even at this early juncture of the campaign. Klopp was at least afforded the easing of his biggest selection headache on Friday night when it became Reds’ show of Harvey Elliott is able to return the fans’ applause as he is stretchered off clear that he would in fact be able to field his Brazilian contingent. Common sense eventually prevailed after the Brazilian FA had initially requested that FiFA invoke their five-day rule to prevent players that failed to report for international duty from representing their clubs this weekend. And while the hamstrung roberto Firmino was forced to sit it out anyway, the availability of Alisson Becker and Fabinho made team selection a much happier task for the manager. After all, two out of three ain’t bad, particularly when they are of the quality of liverpool’s pre-eminent goalkeeper and defensive midfielder. Fabinho was awesome at the base, becoming a one-man midfield by repelling leeds’ attacks and allowing Thiago Alcantara and elliott the room to strut their stuff. The reds’ last visit to elland road was uncomfortably positioned against the fallout from the super league proposals, meaning no-one was even sure if the result would matter in the race for a top-four spot. While the heckles of “you greedy b*******” and the less-than-subtle t-shirts that were placed in the away dressing room for liverpool’s squad drew the ire of Klopp and co on the night, the silence of an empty stadium also added to the bizarre nature of that 1-1 draw back in mid- April. leeds’ attempts to rile their visitors further continued on sunday when they suggested their equaliser on that night was “celebrated around the world” on their social media accounts. it didn’t knock the uber professional reds’ ranks out of their stride too much, but it perhaps offered a smidgen of further motivation for those involved here. liverpool had their lead after around 20 minutes when goalmachine salah latched on to Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low cross after great work from Joel Matip, whose venture forward unsettled the leeds

Salah had started the game superbly, giving new Leeds left-back Junior Firpo quite the introduction to life in England’s top flight and his instinctive finish was his 100th in the Premier League. With the unfancied Divock Origi left out of the 20-man squad and Takumi Minamino and Firmino injured, the goalscoring onus, if it was possible, was heaved even further on to the Egyptian’s shoulders for this one, but he handled that additional pressure expertly as he gave Firpo a torrid afternoon. Liverpool’s efforts to double the lead saw them fashion chances for Virgil van Dijk, Diogo Jota and Elliott before the half-time whistle as they failed to turn their undoubted dominance into a lead that better reflected their superiority. The Reds didn’t have to wait long for their deserved second though when Fabinho latched on to Van Dijk’s knockdown at a corner before lashing it home five minutes after the restart. Liverpool must now hope cooler heads prevail over in Brazil next month too when Fabinho, Alisson and potentially Firmino are summoned for the October round of international fixtures. The injury to Elliott halted the game for eight minutes before he was whisked off to hospital in the back of an ambulance. Thankfully, the diminutive midfielder was conscious and able to give the visiting fans a clap as he left the pitch on a stretcher. The final half hour or so centred around Sadio Mane’s one-man crusade to find the back of the net and after a hatful of missed chances, the Senegal star finally got his goal, blasting past Ilan Meslier after a lovely bit of play from Elliott’s replacement Jordan Henderson and Thiago. The smile on Mane’s face told the full story and he looked thrilled to end what had become something of a personal complex as his repeated opportunities ebbed away in the second period. The evident joy at full-time, however, will be tinged by the Elliott injury which now sees the Reds likely without one of the most talented teens in the land for a long, long time. Like far too many at Anfield over the last 12 months, he now faces up to an arduous road to recovery, even if his social media post from the back of the ambulance was a positive one. Liverpool march on, with 10 points from 12 leaving them level at the summit alongside Manchester United and Chelsea and they are kept off top spot by goals scored only. “The Reds have got no money, but we’ll still win the league,” sang a jubilant away crowd at full time. There may yet be some real truth behind that particular jest. By IAN DOYLE chief lfc Writer ian.doyle@reachplc.com @IanDoyleSport Jurgen Klopp has praised the quick reaction of the liverpool medical staff after Harvey elliott suffered a horror injury at leeds united. elliott sustained a suspected dislocated left ankle when he was caught by leeds substitute pascal Struijk during the second half of the reds’ 3-0 premier league win at elland road on Sunday. liverpool forward Mohamed Salah instantly called for medical attention with the 18-year-old receiving swift treatment for several minutes before departing on a stretcher. elliott, who will undergo further assessment on the injury, posted a message on Instagram from inside an ambulance on the way to hospital. And Klopp said: “It is one of the few Instagram posts that I really love. “It’s good that he has sent that Instagram post as it shows he hasn’t that much pain any more. “I think we all saw it. The ankle wasn’t in the right place any more. “our medical department put it in the right place again which is very important really in the moment that it was quick. “Apart from that, there are not a lot of good things to say about it. “obviously, it’s a bad injury. We have to wait now for the further examinations, assessments and scans and that’s what we will do.” Before his devastating injury, elliott had been an impressive performer on his third successive start in midfield. And speaking to Sky Sports, Klopp added: “He played again an incredible game, he is an incredible player. now he is out. “Do I want such a young boy having this Jurgen Klopp at Elland Road experience so early in his career? no, but it is the case. “We have to be there and we will be there. We will play football without him but we will wait for him as well because obviously he is top, top, top player. “I saw the situation and then I could see immediately the effect because I could see his foot - not in the right place. That is why we were all shocked, absolutely.” Struijk was ultimately sent off due to the intensity and endangerment of elliott after VAr Darren england assessed the tackle. But leeds majority owner Andrea radrizzani believes his club’s player was harshly treated by the officials. “The accident was hard for him and I wish the boy full recovery but this is part of football,” he said. “If you watch the video it was accidental and not intentional. “I felt it was a wrong decision for the red card. “obviously, we can’t control that type of injury but if you watch the video the player gets the ball and the left leg is lying on him. obviously, I’m very sorry for him.”
