Billy Fury flies in

The statue of local rock legend Billy Fury, which many people will remember from the courtyard of the old Museum of Liverpool Life, was moved today to a prominent location outside the Piermaster’s House on the Albert Dock.


Rock stars like to make an entrance, so it was quite fitting that the statue turned lots of heads when it swooped into its new location today. I just hope none of the spectators wanted an encore, this would be quite hard to beat!
