📈 Council tax in Liverpool will rise by almost 5%. On Wednesday night, members of the council signed off on its annual financial plans that will save £49m. Mayor Joanne Anderson said finding the almost £50m in savings for this year had been the "hardest challenge during my time as Mayor."

🌊 Funding for a controversial sea wall in West Kirby has risen to over £15m, according to councillors. The structure aims to help save lives and protect properties along the seafront from storms and sea level rises.
