This is how Irene Williams has appeared to the world for the last month.
Wrapped in a balaclava and wearing dark glasses whenever she's ventured out of her home.
Irene has inoperable bile duct cancer and is being treated by specialists at Aintree University hospital.
The drug she's been taking is light sensitive, so keeping away from sunlight has become the norm.
Fine across NW England and the Isle of Man today. Staying settled. Tomorrow, Friday, will be a good day to set your barometer!Read the full story ›
Boogie Wonderland, Let's groove, September and Fantasy - the tunes of Earth, Wind and Fire provided the soundtrack for a generation.
The group was one of the most successful bands of the 20th century- selling more than 90 million albums worldwide.

An air-breathing fish which was once thought to be the missing link between fish and amphibians is set to go on show at the Blue Planet Aquarium in Ellesmere Port.
The bizarre bichir fish have been described as ‘living fossils’ because they are thought to resemble the ancient amphibians which first colonised the land more than 400 million year ago.
As well as basic lungs, the fish are also capable of surviving indefinitely out of water and can even adapt their fins to walk on land.
Also known as ropefish, the freshwater species are mainly found in the Congo basin area of central Africa.
A total of seven of the fascinating fish were privately donated to the aquarium. They will spend time in quarantine before going on public display.
“We’ve been donated two barred bichir, a Senegal bichir and four ornate bichir.
“Ornate bichir are the largest species and can grow up to 60cm in length.
“All bichir have lungs and can survive for significant periods out of water, some species can live out of water indefinitely if they’re kept moist.
“They’re also sometimes known as “dragon fish” due to their unusual appearance.
"Their skin is like armour, and it has even been studied to help improve personal armour worn by police forces,”
