With a vocal opposition to this introduction as well as graffiti going up, word is spreading fast around Liverpool of the dangers this could be introducing.

People around the city have been quick to protest, with a petition of almost 2000 signatures going up.

The people of Liverpool have mixed feelings about this latest addition. Some claiming that the health worries are “just the latest in fear mongering, I’ve heard everything is going to make me ill at some point or another”.
