It was a Merseyside derby at Anfield - but how different it felt
Plus, we watch the Labour leader’s speech at the party conference
Dear members — we’ve been at the Labour Party Conference this week. Some campaigners have delivered emotional speeches about the Hillsborough Law, some fringe events have made their arguments for an alternative Britain — more on this in your weekend read — but today we’re focussing on party leader Sir Keir Starmer, who vowed a “fresh start” for the UK. Jack asks whether the surge in Labour popularity will mean Liverpool will have its name associated with the moment Tory power ground to a halt.
We also have a report from the women’s football derby at the weekend, where Liverpool and Everton played at Anfield to a record crowd, which illustrates how quickly things are changing in women’s football. Mollie went along and met some of the supporters.
As always, your news briefing is first.
