Repair work has got under way on one of Liverpool's best-loved sculptures which was badly vandalised last year.
The Eleanor Rigby statue in Stanley Street was targeted in October when parts of it went missing.
It consists of a bronze figure on a stone bench reading a newspaper with a shopping bag on her right.
The plaque, which gives basic information about the sculpture and dedicates it to the city, has now been replaced after the old one was taken.
However, other elements are still missing. This comprises the bronze copy of the ECHO which Eleanor is looking at, along with a sparrow perched on top of it.
The empty half of the bench next to Eleanor is a popular place for tourists and others to have their photographs taken.
The tribute was designed and made by Tommy Steele and stands as a tribute to the classic Beatles song of the same name, which tells the story of a lonely woman, Eleanor Rigby.

The statue was erected in December 1982 as a tribute to Fab Four.
The plaque behind the statue has been stolen previously and this would not be the first time the iconic landmark has been vandalised.
Liverpool City Council said previously that all three elements – the book, bird and plaque – would be replaced.
