We ask the people of Liverpool: how patriotic are you - are you English or are you Scouse?

Figures released ahead of St George’s Day revealed fewer people see themselves as English in Liverpool than before the 2016 EU referendum.

Over the weekend, festivities were held up and down the country to celebrate St George's Day.

Here in Liverpool, one of our most iconic buildings is named after the patron saint of England; however, it is not something as a city that we come together to celebrate.

And recent figures released by the Office for National Statistics shows fewer people see themselves as English in Liverpool than before the 2016 EU referendum, while more are identifying as British.

In the year to June 2016, in the lead-up to the Brexit referendum, 57% of residents surveyed in Liverpool said that they identify as English - but this fell to 47% in the year to December 2021.

So, we're asking you, how patriotic do you feel? And do you identify more as British, English or Scouse?
