A sad day today, after more than 150 years, The Liverpool Post or The Liverpool Daily Post, as it was called when I worked for it, is to close today.
I joined the sister paper, The Liverpool Echo, in 1992 where I was a news reporter and later, features writer until 2003, when I left to freelance.
I started writing for The Liverpool Daily Post in 2004 and wrote, features, columns and reviews until I moved into education in 2010.
The column below received the most feedback.
In December 2005 I was asked by the then editor, Jane Wolstenholme, (who now writes as the novelist, Jane Costello,) to write a column in response to Gee Walker's revelation that she forgave the killers of her son.

RIP The Liverpool Daily Post.
