You might have seen in the news that a 1,000lb bomb was found in Twelve Quays dock on the Birkenhead side of the Mersey (you might also have seen our own Dr Alan Scarth talking about it on the news). Anyhoo, if you want to learn more about the Liverpool Blitz – why bombs were dropped, what the residents did in the aftermath etc – you should check out our Liverpool Blitz interactive.
