Workers Memorial Day

April 30, 2010

A memorial service was held on Wednesday in tribute to employees who have died while working.

The ceremony, held at the pier head, saw a minute silence for the deceased, as well as tributes from representatives of various worker organisations.

This is the first year the UK government has officially recognised International Workers Memorial Day.

In Knowsley, council flags were lowered to half mast to mark the occasion.
