Breaking news and travel for Liverpool and Merseyside Friday May 5

Morning all

Good morning Merseyside – I’m Ben Turner and am to trying to keep it together as a fortnight on holiday beckons – as much as sunning myself on a beach is good, every day I’ll be missing the 5am wake-ups and traffic congestion.

Yes it is my honour to be bringing you the news and travel between now and 2.30pm from the ECHO’s newsroom in Old Hall Street, LIVERPOOL. My talented colleagues will keep the rolling news and travel rolling until 11pm – so do stay with us. If there’s something you’ve spotted and want us to check out then tell us in our comment box or via Twitter or Facebook
