Ian attended Great Meols Primary School, Hilbre High School and then Wirral Met College before joining a Youth Training Scheme in Birkenhead and securing a placement with the then Abbey National Building Society.  He went onto work in debt advice and later marketing modern apprenticeships.

Wirral's Licensing Committee has tonight backed calls from Unite the Union and the Borough's Conservative Councillors to retain the cap on the number of Hackney's licensed to operate.

Town Hall fails to protect Wirral's Green Belt

Cllr. Davies finally acted after residents, Conservative Councillors and even members of his own Party said the plan was a mistake.
