🏘️ Around 20,000 households across Liverpool are yet to receive payment of the council tax rebate.

The rebate is part of a support scheme announced by the UK Government to support people with increasing energy costs.

A cabinet report said it was likely the scheme would take "a number of weeks to complete" owing to the large volumes to be processed.

🏟️ The first super-columns of steelwork have been installed at Everton's new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.

The milestone, less than a year after ground was first broken on the waterfront development, will see the stadium outline emerge significantly over the coming weeks and months.
