Calls for the Labour leader of Wirral Borough Council to step down will be discussed by councillors later.

A motion of no confidence in Steve Foulkes has been put forward by Conservative leader Jeff Green.

Mr Green ran the council until its leading Tory-Lib Dem coalition collapsed in May.

He believes the minority Labour council should form an all-party cabinet and has written to councillors urging their support.

The issue will be debated at a council meeting on Monday.

Mr Foulkes said he is committed to the need for all parties to work together to improve the administration.
