liveblogThe Liverpool Post has ceased publication after 158 years, bringing down the curtain on one of the most established regional newspapers in the country.

Just a week ago, publisher Trinity Mirror confirmed that the paper, which was formerly the Liverpool Daily Post before it went weekly in January 2012, will be printed for the last time on December 19.

Its companion website and the Liverpool Business Daily E-Edition, which only launched in June, will also be closing, although the paper’s business coverage will be continuing in some form through a Post-branded section of the Liverpool Echo.

Here's a peek into the final day's activities - read more at the liveblog here.
