Some residents in the CW2 area of Crewe have no water or low pressure this morning because of a leak on West Street. United Utilities say the leak was reported at 5.20am today (Friday). The company posted on its website at 6.41am: "A team of engineers has been requested to attend and should be on site as soon as possible. "We’re sorry for the trouble this may be causing you and we will get your taps flowing normally again as quickly as we can." For updates on this situation click here.
Cheshire East has abandoned its plans to scrap the refund on parking charges for people using the council’s leisure centres in Crewe and Nantwich after some members threatened to quit and join private gyms instead. As reported last week, the proposals to scrap the £1 parking refund for those using Crewe Lifestyle Centre and Nantwich Swimming Pool sparked outrage - especially after the Chronicle revealed it would be cheaper for many to join Bannatyne’s or Total Fitness in Crewe.
Cheshire East could score an own goal if it presses ahead with proposals to scrap refunds on parking charges for leisure centre users in Crewe and Nantwich - with some people already saying they will cancel their membership. The council is looking at removing the £1 refund for Crewe Lifestyle users who park on the former library car park and for Nantwich leisure users who park on Snow Hill.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
