The Liverpool Echo has both the stories on its web site – see links above

It is somewhat ironic that on the same day I found a very negative and a potentially very positive story on the Echo web site about the town I have worked in all my adult life.

There can be no doubt that Bootle is presently going through some tough times indeed not least because of the recent withdrawal of retail giant M&S and the impending removal of all the 2500+ HMRC staff working in Bootle and Netherton to central Liverpool.

Well surely there has to be a positive vision otherwise the only alternative is further decline. We can only hope that investment private & public follows the vision.
