A man who successfully recovered from coronavirus in a Wirral Hospital has been given a warm welcome home after his whole street came out to greet him.

Steven Rutter, from Wallasey, spent a week in Arrowe Park's HDU/Ward 25 isolation unit, after contracting Covid-19 and pneumonia.

But thanks to the brilliant care and attention of doctors, nurses and other NHS staff, he has now made a complete recovery and been discharged.

When the 40-yeard-old arrived back at his home on Browning Road, he was overwhelmed to be greeted on mass by well-wishing neighbours who had lined the street on their doorsteps.

So far, 138 people who tested positive for Covid-19 have died in Wirral NHS hospitals, but Mr Rutter has been fortunate enough to be able to return home to his partner of 20 years Emma and their two young children.
