The former general election candidate will bid to head the group at the Lib-Dem annual general meeting tonight. It is anticipated that the contest will be closely-fought, with the number of Lib-Dem councillors able to vote reduced to just 37.

Rainbow flags will be flown across police stations on Merseyside this week in support of the International Day Against Homophobia.
For the fourth consecutive year, Merseyside Police is flying the rainbow flag, which has been used as a symbol of gay and lesbian pride since the 1970s.

The HQ in Canning Place will also be lit up with lights in rainbow colours, sending out a message that the Force will not accept crime motivated by hate and prejudice as well as championing being an equal opportunities employer.

A touring stage show based on the BBC’s Doctor Who series is coming to Liverpool.
Doctor Who Live will feature appearances from daleks, cybermen, slytheens, weeping angels and gods, along with live music and special effects.

Doctor Who’s executive producer Steven Moffat said: “This is everything I ever wanted since I was 11.

The show is on at the Echo Arena on November 2 and 3, with tickets going on sale at 9am on May 21.

Liverpool's John Lennon Airport has re-opened after the volcanic ash cloud from Iceland again grounded flights yesterday.
However flights had already been cancelled before the restrictions were lifted, so the disruption is likely to continue. A total of 40 flights were grounded.
