Ringo's birth-home set for demolition

The uncertain fate of Ringo's birthplace has been an ongoing story for some time, but now it appears that the dye is cast.

The property has been facing destruction since 2005 when Liverpool City Council determined that the house has "no historical significance" because the Beatles' former drummer had spent only the first three months of his life there.

Speaking to, Joe Anderson -- the leader of Liverpool City Council -- said, "The community in that area have been waiting for 11 years to have these houses demolished and believe they have waited long enough. I listened to both sides [of the argument for maintenance or destruction], and the majority of people in that area want us to do something about it rather than waiting with a blighted, derelict site."
