Liverpool's plans for Anfield redevelopment must include accommodation for local bats!
The Mirror says the club will have to make special provisions for bats in the new-look stadium if suspicions that the protected species roost at the ground are confirmed.
The club, which will soon submit plans to Liverpool City Council to increase Anfield's capacity to 60,000, would be forced by domestic and international laws to ensure that all species of bats are taken into account.
If ecologists find any bats in areas where redevelopment is imminent then it could mean that a space for the bats would have to be incorporated into any new stand structure.
