Maghull – Tyred of hanging baskets?

This amused me:-

Tyred of hanging baskets

Seen in Maghull’s Stafford Moreton Way this week two old tyres have been placed on the brackets that once held hanging baskets – kids or drunks the perpetrators I assume?

It’s easy to forget that Maghull used to have displays of hanging baskets all around its shopping centre. Those in Liverpool Road North and Stafford Moreton Way were ‘outlawed’ a few years ago by Sefton Council because they said the lamp posts were no longer strong enough to carry the weight of them. The brackets were never removed though and someone clearly thought of a new display item to make use of them!
