Yep I'm on the 16 bus as I type this, the cordon starts before the soccerdome so my driver took side streets and got lost/stuck. The fool! No idea what's gone on but right now all roads in the area are congested as there's no actual diversion in use.

AVOID THE AREA IF POSSIBLE!!!!!!!

There were 2 lads on a roof at the bottom of wheatland lane last night throwing roof tiles at the police. It may have something to do with that.

Literally finally got round it all and out by the lights by the car place and the empty plot where that fair was, had a good look left to see anything, one yellow camera police van is present and one scientific support vehicle was en route as we passed the roundabout, there's a high police presence in the area, just none actually in the cordon, couldn't honestly say what's gone on, I couldn't tell from what I could see.

It was chaos this morning as there is no advance warning of the closure until you are faced with the 'road ahead closed' signage where you have little choice other than to turn right up one of the side streets. No one knew where they were going and ended up coming out somewhere on St Pauls road (I think) where the traffic was backed up terribly and moving very slowly. It looked from what I could see that there were a few yellow vans and police tape very near to the new grocery shop on the corner. There was what looked like a lot of rubble/debris on the road.

They would be better off placing advanced warning of Birkenhead Road being closed before you get to the seacombe ferry roundabout.

Hope whatever has happened all those involved are ok and no one is hurt.

When i went past at 8.45 the entire road/ pavement next to the shop was strewn with tiles. Flaming idiots. I had to take a detour-not amused- nearly late.

I bet the shop owner at Dawn til Dusk wasn't amused either, he was still shut upon my return at 2pm ish.

When I tried to pull out of my cul de sac at 7.50 this morning there was an articulated lorry stuck in Mathew Street, I had to drive on the pavement to get passed him. God knows how he eventually got out! It was chaos, I missed my train and was late for work, not happy, grrrr.

Glad I'm not the only one to get lost this morning then, was stupid that there was no diversion at all. I'm usless with directions so I followed a taxi and assumed the taxi would know where to go but nope, 3 point turn in the cul de sac. Think I'll take a screen shot of this coversation and show my boss in work for proof of why I was late haha!
