Cliff Darley, who had been Wirral Council’s chief executive, would have been pleased with his memorial service at St Saviour’s in Oxton last Wednesday.

My memories flowed back to my first meeting with him during my first days as an MP. Cliff was then running Wirral’s housing department.
It was his enthusiasm that struck me...
