Ringo Starr’s childhood home is boarded up

The childhood home of former Beatle Ringo Starr has been boarded up after a series of fans have stolen bricks from the property as souvenirs.

The house at No 9 Madryn Street Liverpool, which is scheduled for demolition, has had metal shutters fitted to its windows, in order to stop it from becoming a hazard to pedestrians.

Fans of the Beatles have campaigned to save the house where Starr and his family grew up. It is the only home linked to the band which does not have protected status.

"Fans from all over the world have objected to the demolition,” commented Philip Coppell, Chairman of the Save Madryn Street Society. “We are still hopeful that we can persuade the city to revoke the demolition order."
