Parkman has been named preferred bidder for Liverpool City Council's 10 year £100M partnership contract covering a range of services including property management, highway management and urban regeneration work.

Troubled nuclear generator British Energy this week wiped £3.6bn off the value of its power stations, posting a pretax loss of £4.3bn.

The taxpayer could be landed with the cost of winding the company up, on top of the £2.1bn liabilities management bill taken on by the government last November.
