Grafton collapses

Stately-but-decayed Liverpool nightlife icon The Grafton edged a bit further into history last night as a chunk of it collapsed.

Mandatory bit here about how The Beatles played there, you know, in 1963. (There was a theft before their second gig at the venue, which saw 100 tickets vanish.)

The Grafton closed in 2008 after over eighty years of mixed fortunes as a nightclub; attempts to find a owner in 2011 failed.
