2015 April 1st Jokes - Did you get pranked?

ON 1 April 2015 we ran a few photos and a small report on both Facebook and on Twitter claiming that Southport and Formby  had new road signs in connection to Space Tourism. Other posts locally included one the said Sainsbury's trolleys had to be recharged every 2 hours, so some customers protested that they would have to take then back to the trolley bay to be recharged. Another issued was by Mersey Rail about using hologram like figures to sell you tickets and give you up to date information. If you did a good April 1st Joke or spotted any, please let us know by emailing us to:-
