Two houses were blasted with a shotgun in what police described as a ‘targeted attack.’Officers were called to Clarence Road in Wallasey this morning, following reports of damage to a window and then the house next door was also found to be damaged. No one living in either property has been injured.
A small business owner has told how he was forced to leave his site after a ‘professional’ arson attack. John Hughes ran family firm City Centre Sheds on Norfolk Street for 15 years. But he has since moved the bulk of his business out to a new site in Sefton after a devastating arson attack earlier this year. Mr Hughes, from south Sefton, said to the ECHO: “Investigators told me it was a professional job. I think it happened just eight minutes after the last person left the building for the day.
An accident report leaked to the ECHO has revealed that a steel fixer suffered ‘broken bones to his neck, a cut to head and possible compression of lung’ after a set of cages fell from a tower crane onto him. Details of the accident, which happened on Norfolk Street in the Baltic Triangle last August, have emerged for the first time. The worker’s hard hat was smashed by the impact of the cages, and he was left with blood pouring from his head.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
