What time Robert Jenrick will make Liverpool Council announcement

Liverpool Council is bracing itself for the worst today.

The findings of what is expected to be a damning report into activities at the city authority will be laid out for all to see.

The government will then announce what actions will be taken next and whether Whitehall commissioners will be sent in to take over the day-to-day running of the council.

It would be a huge and drastic move and one never been done before on this scale.
