Cannock sports clubs' future unclear as home goes on sale

A town's longstanding cricket and hockey clubs are facing an uncertain future as their home goes up for sale. The Morris Ground in Chase Park, Cannock, is going under the hammer on Wednesday as the body that runs it has gone into receivership.Sport England said the sale was the result of financial difficulties over the last five years.Both Cannock Cricket Club - formed in 1860 - and Cannock Hockey Club play home games at the site.About 1,000 people use the venue where there are also bowls and football facilities, squash courts and a gym. It is owned by the overarching Cannock Cricket & Hockey Club and it is that body, not the individual sports clubs, which has gone into receivership.The process is being managed by Duff and Phelps, which has been contacted for comment.David Robinson, chairman of Cannock Cricket Club - for which ex-England batsman Kevin Pietersen once played - said there had been no access to the ground since 28 June, and it was on sale with a guide price of £295,000. The cricket club is fundraising to keep going as without a home, Mr Robinson says, it is having to pay to use other clubs' grounds, while additionally losing money it would otherwise make from people using facilities.Mr Robinson says there are also concerns a buyer may not want to keep it as a sporting site. "The fear is... we just don't know where we are going," he said."We need to see ourselves to September, then see who purchases it and see how we might be able to move forward." Latest news from the West MidlandsChris Mayer from Cannock Hockey Club, who represented Great Britain in the 1996 Olympics, said: "It is devastating - the fact we don't know what the future is, is very upsetting."There has been a hockey club in Cannock for 114 years, and we don't know if there is going to be a hockey club come September."We are very hopeful, and we have got places lined up, but it is not the same as having your own home."Sport England said it was "disappointed" the site was on sale. "We look forward to having a constructive dialogue to ensure that the successful bidder recognises the need to maintain and enhance the existing sports usage at the site as part of their future plans," it said.

Ilhan Omar: Birmingham mural is an act of 'solidarity'

A mural painted on the side of a Birmingham takeaway has got the attention of US congresswoman Ilhan Omar.And the reason - the piece of art is based on her. Street artist Mohammed 'Aerosol' Ali wants it to be a sign of "solidarity" with the American politician.That's because Ilhan is one of four congresswomen of colour involved in a row with Donald Trump over his comments for them to "go home".The retweet of his murals by Ilhan, who was born in Somalia, has helped spread Mohammed's work to thousands of people. "Who would imagine that just a spray can on a brick wall in an inner-city part of Birmingham can have impact around the globe," he says."There's been such positive responses from people of all backgrounds, all faiths, people who say, 'I stand with Ilhan', and can see the injustice of how a young woman has been attacked in this way."The wall where Mohammed painted the mural sits in the heart of one of Birmingham's large Muslim communities."Those in hijab are perhaps seen as oppressed or not liberated. This shows that Ilhan and many others that look like her absolutely are empowered."And by using Ilhan as "a strong image of somebody who spoke out in the face of bigotry and hatred" he hopes others will be inspired.Even though Ilhan plays a part in politics on the other side of the world, Mohammed says there's a reason why British people can relate to her."Ilhan's a strong woman on the other side of an ocean who can connect with people in the streets of Birmingham, London, Manchester or any other city."The comments she had to put up with, the hatred she has to deal with, this is something that affects each and every one of us in a way. This is a reflection of our realities as well."He wants people who walk past the mural to see it as an "act of solidarity against a woman who had the power to confront power full on".It's just one of several pieces Mohammed has painted around the world.He wants all of his murals to address issues faced by multicultural communities and to "tell the story of everyday people in public spaces".Follow Newsbeat on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.Listen to Newsbeat live at 12:45 and 17:45 weekdays - or listen back here.

Stoke-on-Trent man let dog suffer with 'worst skin condition'

A man has been banned from keeping animals for a decade after a dog was left with the "worst skin condition" an RSPCA inspector had ever seen.The charity said when it found the Staffordshire bull terrier type at the home of Daniel Tomlinson, she had lost most of her fur.Tomlinson, 49, of Oxford Street, Stoke-on-Trent, admitted causing unnecessary suffering to an animal. The RSPCA said the dog - Daisy - was recovering.Tomlinson, it said, had failed over months to get veterinary treatment for the animal's chronic skin complaint.According to the charity, its officers investigated in March having been called by police who had attended Tomlinson's address on an unrelated matter.Latest news from the West MidlandsAt sentencing at North Staffordshire Justice Centre on 15 July, he was also given a 14-week suspended prison sentence and ordered to complete 200 hours of unpaid work.On Monday, the RSPCA revealed the extent of the condition in which Tomlinson had left the dog.Inspector Charlotte Melvin said: "It was the worst skin complaint I have seen on a dog during my six years as an RSPCA inspector."It was obvious she was in a suffering state and had been for months." Ms Melvin said Tomlinson claimed to have taken Daisy for veterinary treatment previously but never went back for a follow-up appointment so she was left in this "awful condition".Daisy is now doing well in RSPCA care and will soon be ready for a new home, according to the charity."Her fur has grown back and she looks like a different dog - she looks so happy and healthy," said Ms Melvin.
