Today we are continuing our highly entertaining feature which I feel must go down as one of the most exhilarating series we have ever posted here on Jammy Toast. I think we had just better warn anyone who has a heart condition, or who is easily excitable, to just take this slowly and do not read/view this post all at once. Over-excitement could result if you consume this little post too quickly – I would also recommend sitting down. Now, as many of you know, Razzi and I teach people to drive around the Wirral and one of the draw-backs to this is when we need an emergency wee-wee. Public Toilets around the Wirral a very few and far between. So today, we are continuing our feature where we introduce you to the wonderful toiletry arrangements offered by the Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council…

Today we are starting a brand new, highly exciting feature which I feel must go down as one of the most exhilarating pieces we have ever written here on Jammy Toast.

Alittle while ago, Razzi and I had the pleasure of meeting Charlie Wright, the last man still living in Ilchester Road. With his Union Flag fluttering at full mast in the breeze outside his house, Charlie lives in the last house standing on the River Street Estate where more than six hundred houses used to stand. He epitomises the Olde World concept that became enshrined in law; an Englishman’s home is his castle. As Charlie surveys the barren landscape in front of his house that was a once thriving community near the Birkenhead docks, home to thousands of workers and families that made up the manufacturing and shipbuilding industries.

Wirral Council have been told to do one by Central Government if they expect any government money to help clean up after the New Ferry explosion. The government will not provide funds to help people affected by the explosion on Merseyside either, officials have said. Two people were seriously hurt, 31 injured and many buildings destroyed in the blast in New Ferry, Wirral. The cost of recovering from an incident of this “size and impact” should be covered by “local resources”, the Minister for the Northern Powerhouse said in a letter to Wirral Council.

Now a newly-opened show at the National Architecture Centre in the city is to display designs for Liverpool that were never built. The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) centre is housed in the Broadway Malyan-designed Mann Island on the waterfront RIBA North has a gallery “at its heart”, showing the city’s architectural past, present and future. Mayor Joe Anderson says it will bring “new tools and innovations”.

The second victim is described at in a “serious but stable” condition. The victim in a critical condition is believed to be a man who is being treated at the Walton Neurology Centre, according to reports locally. The “huge” explosion, which happened just after 9pm last night destroyed a dance studio and damaged several other buildings around Boundary Lane in New Ferry.

Jammy Toast favourite Ricky Tomlinson, who played Jim Royle in the Royle Family, has claimed late Countdown presenter Richard Whiteley worked for the security services. Ricky made the bombshell claims after relaunching a pub in Chester where, back in 1972, he helped organise the first national building workers’ strike. Ricky, a former plasterer, and one of the so-called Shrewsbury pickets later faced a trial which saw him jailed. He now fronts an ongoing campaign to clear their names as alleged victims of a political conspiracy.
