Liverpool Lime Street station is due to re-open tomorrow

Liverpool Lime Street station is due to re-open tomorrow – a day earlier than previously announced. 


200 tonnes of debris fell from a trackside wall onto the tracks last Tuesday, February 28, and left commenters in transport chaos.

Claims that passenger trains were moments away from colliding with the 200-tonne fall have also emerged during the last week.

Communters have had to find alternative transport as mainline trains could not enter the station for over a week.

Network Rail London North Western route MD Martin Frobisher said: “I am thrilled to be able to get customers moving in and out of Liverpool’s main station.

“Our orange army has worked tirelessly since the incident occurred. We’re really proud of them.

“We’re also grateful for the teamwork and support of the train companies and for the patience of both passengers and neighbouring residents and businesses.”

Liverpool FC ban The Sun newspaper from the club premises


Liverpool Football Club have revoked The Sun’s access to all club premises; including their stadium, Anfield, and their training ground, Melwood.

The ban is the result of The Sun’s coverage of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster which resulted in the death of 96 Liverpool fans.

The decision to ban the paper has came after club officials met with members of the Hillsborough Family Support Group; an organisation that represents the families of the victims.

Reporters from The Sun will now be unable to report on club matches directly from Anfield, and their access to both the players and the manager, Jurgen Klopp, has been cut off.

Whilst the HFSG are delighted with the club’s decision, The Sun has responded by labelling the ban “bad for fans and bad for football”.
