| No Comments

Hundreds of people took to the streets in protest at proposals to close down several of Wirral's libraries, arts centres and sports centres...

Children's author Alan Gibbons was amongst those marching. He said, "He said: "Forty-eight percent of the British people use libraries on a regular basis - more than go to football or to cinemas put together.
"And it might not appear exciting and pizzazz and all the rest of it, but actually it's something that is precious to people."
