Devastating explosion in New Ferry, Wirral
The early news reports last night of a "big explosion in Birkenhead" certainly grabbed my attention as an ex-Wallaseyan. Full marks to the Liverpool Echo for keeping us up-to-date. Fortunately there have been no deaths, though there have been injuries, and no houses have been affected. A dance studio has been completely obliterated but, such is the generosity of Merseysiders that a fund to replace it has already started.
