Home is where the heart is - National vote reveals what really makes us Scousers

THE Beatles, Liverpool Cathedral and the Grand National make round up of most loved features in Merseyside Oatcakes, Yorkshire puddings and cream tea beat fish and chips for top British foods

State-specific licence plates are a great way of showing pride for drivers in the US, but why should our cousins across the pond have all the fun? From Big Ben to the River Mersey, the UK has some truly spectacular features which Brits, quite rightfully, want to show off too.

A nationwide vote has revealed what citizens of the UK truly believe makes Britain a country to be proud of, as well as what makes each county stand out in their own right. London may be the capital, but it takes 48 counties, including Merseyside to make the United Kingdom the wonder it is today.

To celebrate what makes Britain great, leading vehicle leasing company Leasing Options has created new number plate designs showcasing these features, ready for personalisation savvy drivers in the UK to take inspiration from.

Choosing between defining foods, influential pop culture figures, stunning historical buildings and alluring tourist attractions, Leasing Options asked Brits to identify the most iconic features of the 20 largest counties across England including Merseyside.

A new number plate has been designed for Merseyside with the most voted for quintessential feature, as well as the county flag colours and a famous local saying, all being beautifully illustrated on to a one of a kind license plate.

The top 5 greatest things in Merseyside include:-

The Beatles (33%)
Liverpool Cathedral (16%)
The River Mersey (15%)
The Grand National (10%)
Cilla Black (5%)

Other key features of Merseyside which just missed out on the top 5 include the Radio City Tower, Creamfields and the Scouse brow.

Mike Thompson, Brand Manager at Leasing Options said:- "British drivers are passionate about their car aesthetics, but at the end of the day, a Ford Fiesta is a Ford Fiesta, no matter how shiny and clean.  Using quirky interior accessories is one way to personalise your vehicle, but we believe showcasing your home county through an eye catching number plate would be an amazing way to show off your home pride. They say home is where the heart is, and we want to help Brits everywhere wear their hearts on their car."
