    3,000 people have now signed the petition to re-open the pier following a street stall in Birkdale Village held yesterday.

    Southport Lib Dems started the petition in January this year to call on Sefton Council to undertake work needed on the pier in phases and so avoid full closure. This advice was included in the recent structural engineers report.

    Erin Harvey, Lib Dem Parliamentary spokesperson and Birkdale resident, commented. "Southport residents and visitors were queueing up to sign the petition, upset to be denied a walk on the pier over the Easter weekend and during beautiful weather.

    "People from all ages and backgrounds want to see their pier re-open. We hope Sefton Council realise the strength of feeling and don't just let our pier gather dust when it could be enjoyed while work carries on."

    If a buyer can be found who would maintain and operate the pier as a going concern, then give them a long lease for a peppercorn. Or sell it outright! It would be interesting to see whether any businesses come forward.

    Alternatively, demolish it and be done with it.

    They still aren't mentioning where they would get the 13million from

    Irrespective of the situation today. The pier whoever takes it on.
    Has to make a profit. Its a total liability in the council hands and will continue to cost ratepayers
    money every month It's bad enough the market food hall costing
    ratepayers £1,000 a week on losses. We won't mention The Strand
    in Bootle. ( nobody appears to know the true figures)
