TV deal for city's first marathon
3:53pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
Highlights of next month’s first-ever York Marathon on October 20 are to be broadcast nationally on Channel 4 at 7am on November 3. Sponsors Plusnet have a announced a deal with production company Dream Team.
Hotel dropped: A1950s office block could be turned into 50 flats after plans to demolish it to make way for a £10m hotel were dropped. Proposals to open a 95-bedroom hotel on land occupied by Holgate Villas were approved by City of York Council in 2011, but the scheme has now been abandoned after an agreement could not be secured between the building’s owners and an operator.
Pay-out bill: Council bosses in York have paid nearly £210,000 in three years to staff suspended for misconduct allegations, including violence, drink-driving, turning up for work drunk, and inappropriate sexual conduct. They paid £170,000 to 29 suspended staff and an additional £40,000 in enhanced pay-offs for some employees dismissed for gross misconduct.
