A new landing stage for the Mersey Ferries has opened to passengers at Liverpool's Pier Head.

The £8m terminal replaces a temporary facility which has been in use since the previous landing stage sank in bad weather in 2006.

The landing stage will also be the base for Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service's river based fire station.

Part of the cost of the new terminal was funded by £3.8m from the European Regional Development Fund.

Neil Scales, chief executive of Merseytravel, said: "We are delighted to see the world famous Mersey Ferries calling once again at the spiritual home in front of the Three Graces.

"Our tourism strategy contributes more than £34m and the equivalent of 742 full-time jobs to the region's economy each year."
