Letter: Liverpool thanks Aintree crowd

Sir: On behalf of the people of the City of Liverpool I would like to thank all the many thousands of visitors who displayed such tolerance and forbearance during the exceptional events at Aintree this weekend.

We were pleased to be able to help with accommodation but could not have achieved so much without assistance from a host of other organisations, agencies and above all, the many residents who so generously - and typically - opened their own doors to help.

I hope all those who travelled to Merseyside for the Grand National will not be put off returning and look forward to seeing them here again next year under happier circumstances.
