Minister tries to save Ringo Starr's former home

A government minister has moved to stop controversial plans to demolish Beatle Ringo Starr's former home.

Liverpool City Council wants to pull down the house where the drummer was born and lived for three months as part of a massive regeneration scheme.

But Housing Minister Grant Shapps has written to the council calling for a temporary reprieve for 9 Madryn Street.

He wants conservationists to have more time to put forward their ideas for preserving the terraced house.

'All options considered'
