(Gibson) The last we heard, Ringo Starr's childhood home was going to be torn down. Now, it may be saved from demolition, if British Housing Minister Grant Shapps has his way.

The Liverpool Council recently gave permission for the house at 9 Madryn Street to be demolished along with 444 others as part of an upgrade of buildings in the Dingle area. Minister Shapps has formally requested a postponement of the demolition while alternative plans are considered, although ultimately his department has the power to veto the Council's decision.

Ringo was born at the house but only lived there for a short time, before his family moved to nearby 10 Admiral Grove, a two-up, two-down house also in Dingle. more on this story
