The funeral of Brianna Ghey has taken place in Culcheth. Two 15 year old's - a boy and a girl - have been charged with her murder after she was stabbed in a park in February. Mourners were asked to wear pink in honour of the teenager.

Wirral Council has unanimously approved an extra £4.4m in funding for the controversial West Kirby sea wall. Despite some disagreement among councillors about the scheme, which is in the final stages of construction, all voted to approve the funding, which will come from the Environment Agency.
