Battle continues in Liverpool to save children's centres

A rally planned to protest the closure of Liverpool's children's centres has gone ahead despite the centres being given a temporary stay of execution.

The news that all 17 of Liverpool’s SureStart children’s centres would remain open broke earlier this week, to the delight of parents and staff.

Mayor Joe Anderson announced he had found the £3m needed to keep the centres running but only until 2017.
