Beatles Home Faces Demolition

BEATLES star RINGO STARR is facing the prospect of his childhood home being destroyed by Liverpool City Council - causing outrage among his fans.

Fans are fuming that the drummer's home - where he spent his childhood - in the once-impoverished Dingle area of Liverpool, England, is facing being pulled down by the local authorities.

While the NATIONAL TRUST has restored the childhood homes of PAUL McCARTNEY and JOHN LENNON, the organisation has no plans to save Starr's home from demolition.

Starr's biographer ALAN CLAYTON says, "The city council regretted destroying the original Cavern club building and I think it would also end up regretting demolishing Ringo's home.

"If you are going to preserve the houses of other Beatles then you should preserve his."
