A Liverpool John Moores student bought a house from the city council for just £1 two years ago - now it is worth £70,000 after an incredible transformation. Victoria Brennan was given a dilapidated two-bedroom property in Wavertree and immediately set about the huge challenge of renovating it to become a beautiful home. The 30-year-old PHD student is one of the stars of the upcoming Channel 4 documentary ‘The £1 Houses: Britain’s Cheapest Street’, which is set to air at 9pm on February 14.
A couple who bought a house in Liverpool for £1 were left shocked when they found a bullet on their doorstep and saw a woman defecating in the middle of their street. Mel and Rob Hilton-Phillips are one of a number of people who picked up a bargain £1 property from Liverpool City Council. They dreamed of transforming the dilapidated property in the so-called ‘Webster Triangle’ near Smithdown Road - but found the area to be more challenging than they had first thought.
A Kingdom litter squad officer attempting to fine an elderly Tesco customer was booted off the supermarket’s land by security staff. The incident was caught on film by anti-Kingdom campaigner Mark Watson after he saw the enforcement officer talking to an elderly couple. It took place in the Holyhead Tesco store in North Wales - and the video suggests it wasn’t the first time that the superstore’s staff have had to tell Kingdom its wardens are not welcome on their land.
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".
