Liver Birds

‘THE city of Liverpool is famous for a few things: football, Cilla Black, The Beatles, coachloads of Japanese tourists that come to see where The Beatles played, football, and, er, did we mention football?

”Looking for business?”

But now, the Telegraph reports, Liverpool is set to be widely known for a new quality – it is to have the country’s first officially sanctioned red light district.

Liverpool city council has voted by ”an overwhelming majority” to give the green light for a designated area for prostitutes to ply their trade.

The zone of tolerance will be located in an industrial zone away from residential homes and evening businesses.

There will ample parking, lots of kerbs for punters to crawl along and good transport links for those who prefer to arrive by bus.

Says Flo Clucas, the council’s executive member for housing, social care and health: ”We had to come up with a solution to the terrible problems caused by prostitutes working in our residential communities.”

And thereby give the city’s visitors something else to see other than Aunt Mimi’s house, the Cavern Club and where Sporty Spice bought her first shellsuit.

Now they can try to spot Wayne Rooney…’
