NEWS ROUNDUP: Vaccination levels & Hydrogen buses
Your latest news update for the region
Vaccination levels in Liverpool's most deprived areas continue to lag behind the city as a whole as concern grows about the continued threat of Covid-19. There is now a 21 percentage point gap between the wards with the highest and lowest uptake, with rates in Picton, Princes Park, Kensington & Fairfield and Central standing at the lowest in the city.
Plans to move Birkenhead Market to a new temporary site at St Werburghs Square could be altered. Many traders have slammed the proposed move in recent weeks. The council have set up an email address where all of the traders can email with any suggestions around alternative options.
Liverpool City Region's planned hydrogen bus fleet could double in size - before the first vehicle even hits the road. Funding is already in place to buy 20 double-decker hydrogen buses to initially serve the city region's busiest route - the 10A between St Helens and Liverpool city centre.
