Singer has been replaced on Cavern Club wall

Convicted paedophile Gary Glitter has had his brick removed from the Cavern Club‘s wall in Liverpool.

Management originally refused to remove the singer’s brick, stating it was ‘a historical document’.

However following phone calls from a Merseryside MP and a consultation with a child abuse victim the club had it chiselled away.

It has now been replaced by a brick with The Mighty Wah!‘s lead singer Pete Wylie‘s name on it.

According to the Telegraph.co.uk West Derby MP Bob Wareing, who led the calls to have the brick removed, said: “I didn’t think he [Gary Glitter] was a good role model and I wouldn’t myself have wanted to put his name up.

“I understand the club wanting to put across the history of the Cavern Club and really not leaving anything out. But on the other hand, this is a special case.”
