Lungs of the Mersey…

BBC News Online have been highlighting traditional seaside resorts in recent weeks. Last Saturday was the turn of New Brighton, and it’s actually pretty favourable…

Australian Bob Williams, 51, has returned to the town for the first time since leaving it 32 years ago.

He said: “I’m really impressed with the place, how clean it is, the lack of graffiti and it’s safe to be walking round. My parents emigrated because they didn’t like the atmosphere.

“But I can see now it has a lot of potential and I don’t think people realise what they have here. It’s wonderful walking along here with no cars. We don’t want to go home.”

Check out the comments for people’s memories and see what this area needs to recapture.
