Ringo Starr’s Liverpool birthplace in new threat

The threat of demolition is once again hanging over the Liverpool birthplace of Beatles drummer Ringo Starr.
The Victorian terrace at Madryn Street, Toxteth, is one of hundreds in the "Welsh Streets" area to be bulldozed to make way for modern family homes. 

Discussions to move number nine – where Richard Starkey was born on 7th July 1940 – to the new Museum of Liverpool are currently on hold.  But official demolition notices have now re-appeared in the street. Madryn  Street is one of a number of roads earmarked for the second phase of the Pathfinder scheme, which will see the bulldozers enter in March 2011.
