A multi-million pound project to make Grimsby the premier car handling port in the UK will allow the town to welcome the largest vessels carrying thousands of precious cargoes. Port manager Ashley Curnow has told how the docks will evolve again as the car-carriers it relies on do, six years on from the opening of the £26 million out of harbour jetty. Grimsby River Terminal moved the port up a gear by taking away the lock gate limitations, allowing the 800-capacity vessels to be joined by boats carrying upwards of 3,000 vehicles. Now, modelling on the world’s largest fleet, operator ABP's plans aim to bring in three times that number in a single sailing. “This could make Grimsby THE car handling port,” Mr Curnow said. “We are looking at vessels with a capacity of 9,000 vehicles. The project is modelled on having the largest ship in the world on the terminal. It will open up Grimsby to new markets. Currently we serve short sea, this is changing the … [Read more...] about The amazing superships Grimsby is getting ready to welcome
Clarets boss Sean Dyche leads his side into battle for the 300th time tomorrow at Turf Moor. And in a remarkable coincidence, tomorrow’s opponents Wolves are the same as in his first game in charge. In Burnley’s current predicament, sitting two points above the drop zone, a repeat of that 2-0 win in November 2012 would be most welcome.Dyche said: “I’d definitely take the same result again! I remember Pato (Martin Paterson) slotting one in, and Charlie (Austin) – of course he scored!“It’s a strange quirk, and I can honestly say, without any doubt in my ability, I didn’t think we would be here 300 games later, both in the Premier League.”Regardless of the milestone, Dyche knows his players have a huge seven games coming up to try and preserve their Premier League status. The Clarets have lost their last four games, and he said: “Nothing has changed, it was a bitter pill to swallow against Leicester, especially as they … [Read more...] about Burnley boss Sean Dyche ready to lead the Clarets in to battle for his 300th game in charge!
Retailers in Cork City who led opposition to the St Patrick’s Street car ban are ready to move beyond the controversy and embrace change, according to one of the organisers of a meeting tonight on the future of retail. Michael Mulcahy, who heads up the Little Island business association, said several city centre retailers who were concerned about the impact of afternoon bus lanes on St Patrick’s Street felt their voice had not been heard during the debate on the so-called ‘Pana ban’. “Some were perhaps guilty of focusing on the negativity when there is so much to be positive about,” he said. “This is no longer about dissension. It’s about positivity and progress. The only way forward is a model of progression. It’s about embracing change and looking at the retail model and adjusting to changing times.” Mr Mulcahy was speaking ahead of tonight’s meeting in the Clayton Convention Centre Silver Springs on the future of … [Read more...] about Retailers ‘now ready to embrace car ban’
The sister of a Coronation Street extra turned addict who is now sleeping rough has made a plea for her to come home. Deana Dyce featured in the first episode of Channel 4 documentary 60 Days on the Street. Her half-sister Regan-Pià-Carra Dyce said she felt a mixture of shock, anger and heartbreak while watching. While the aspiring event designer knows full well the extent of her sister’s addiction, to have it broadcast in the Ed Stafford documentary was almost too much to bear, Manchester Evening News reports. “Never in a million years did I ever expect to see my sister on TV like that,” she explains. “Even though we know her, it was very difficult to see her in that way so publicly. It’s like she’s there, but the person we used to know is gone. “She’s a good mum and a good person - that’s what makes it all so much harder. I really hope that the programme will be a massive wake up call for her. I would like to help her - we … [Read more...] about Coronation Street extra and ‘stunning’ model now homeless on the streets
