🦉A bid to keep up controversial neon signs outside the Liverpool branch of Hooters has been rejected. The American food chain opened its second UK branch in Liverpool last year. Based on the conservation area, Water Street, Hooters had sought permission to display large illuminated signs and banners.

👩‍🎤 Care home residents across Merseyside are set to join in the fun of Eurovision.
