The line-up to help Liverpool City Council tackle its failing education service has been announced, following the retirement last week of former director Frank Cogley.

Wigan MBC's education director Bob Clark will take over the running of the service on a part-time basis until October.

He insisted that services at Wigan would not be affected while he helped Liverpool sort out its problems.

Maggie Atkinson, a senior inspector at Warrington BC, will become acting deputy director of education (special projects) and Ann Melville, Liverpool's head of policy and resources, will also become a deputy director.

Liverpool chief executive Peter Bounds said: 'I am grateful to them and their authorities for being able to assist at this very important time. They will help maintain leadership and momentum.'

Next week Liverpool will invite companies interested in bidding for the council's school refurbishment private finance initiative to an open day.
