The Echo website, as with all the other Trinity Mirror owned websites are awful, the Echo has gone really downhill since they moved to Oldham.

Yes, they did an entire article simply reposting speculation from the comments section from their original story.

Here they are posting the thoughts of Gaby Agbonlahor on Cristiano Ronaldo, as shared with (News Corp owned) Talksport. They were also Tweeting links to this article.

I walked from West Kirby to Meols yesterday and on some stretches of the walk there was definitely a smell of raw sewage. No clue where it was coming from.

I hope it's Bramley Moore. Everton fans can get a preview of what they're in for when they move.

The echo website is nigh on unusable on your mobile phone now.

Just had a quick look to see if anything was happening with the  bus strikes but insanely couldn't find a single article about it. Not even a quick one to say they were still ongoing, even though its clearly one of the most important local news stories at the moment.

I had to switch to the app. The website was unusable and pretty much fried my last mobile every time I went on it.

As i said, the website is dreadful, any articles you do click on to, comes with a video on auto load just fuck off :no, ended up turning off JavaScript for when i visit the site, oh & using adblockers are essential too.

to be honest this is a trend I see a lot. they make a website virtually unworkable on mobile to force you to use their fucking app. I'm not downloading an app I'll barely use that will hog space on my phone for the few bare minutes I might use it every month. I've disabled and uninstalled apps and fucked the consequences/avoided the webpages. It's pretty liberating actually.

I just went on to look at this, still not a thing. It's just about 2 weeks, and there is pretty much no buses from my area at all, would be nice to have some news on it.... shame the local paper prefers tiktok hacks and Michael Owen's verdict on Love Island.

did he get the help he needs?

nope

do mental health homes exist? not really - this fella might have been sectioned

Are the police trained for this? nope

not to defend a knife-wielding maniac but should he really be out to do this considering his mental state?

In this society - yes, obviously. He did it didn't he?

Reported on the Radio Merseyside, Arriva drivers are voting today & tomorrow whether to accept a new pay offer, if the offer is accepted Arriva buses could be running as soon as Wednesday.

I might finally be able to leave Speke!  ;D Poor people wheeling their suit cases around the place to and from the aiport every time I leave the house at the moment. I got a taxi for some old couple who had no idea where they were going the other day, just walking down Speke Hall Ave at a snails pace.

I've been getting the train to Hunts Cross to visit one of my favourite cafes in Speke, then walking back to Garston to get a Stagecoach home. A bit of a drudge but at least I've got my steps in. ;D

The Warehouse Cafe, next door to Taskers. I love it in there. Staff are really nice, and it's got a lovely vibe. Gets very busy though! I usually go once a week to catch up with all the gossip. :)

You see pitbulls everywhere in the states. People are horrified if anyone tries to say they're dangerous. It's madness
