Had the planning permission been given the green light, an additional 1,000 Salesforce staff could have been accommodated at the site, Ronan had claimed. And it was a double blow for the developer, after Spencer Place Development Co Ltd - co-owned by the Ronan Group and Colony Capital - was also refused planning permission for a companion application to increase to 13 storeys a residential and aparthotel plan in the Docklands. The double refusal came in spite of heavy lobbying of Government ministers and Dublin City Council by Ronan and Salesforce over recent months in a bid to ease height restrictions on buildings in the Docklands.

British Steel is to enter insolvency, putting hundreds of Teesside jobs at risk. Talks between the Government and British Steel owners Greybull Capital collapsed on Tuesday. British Steel had pointed to the uncertainty around Brexit and pleaded for more support. The company is thought to have originally requested a Government loan of £75m, but that figure is said to have reduced to £30m over recent days. The Government lent the firm £100m last month so it could pay a carbon emissions bill and avoid a hefty European Union fine. British Steel employs 5,000 people around the UK. A further 20,000 supply chain jobs would be endangered by the firm's collapse. Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen has strongly criticised both the Government and Greybull. Redcar MP Anna Turley described Wednesday's news as "absolutely gutting".

The family of a pensioner found dead by an ambulance crew almost 90 minutes after he made the first of two emergency calls for help is still demanding answers from the service - nine months on. Michael Green, 74, died at his Stocking Farm home on Saturday, September 1 last year. In two distressed and distressing calls recorded by East Midlands Ambulance Service, handed over to his family and listened to by LeicestershireLive, he can be heard painfully pleading for help. Passing out Mr Green, who suffered from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and pancreatitis can be heard telling operators that he has been stuck in his chair for five hours with a table pressing against his neck and that he was “passing out”. His family are uncertain how the table came to be pressing against him other than to think it may have happened while he was trying to reach his phone.
