London, Nov 13 (ANI): A tribute to pop paedophile Gary Glitter on a Wall of Fame at the Cavern Club in Liverpool is said to be fuelling outrage.

The club had classic bands like The Beatles, The Who, and the Rolling Stones playing in it between 1957 and 1973, and Glitter had also been among them.

The brick carrying the English rock singers name is on the outside of the famous club, and an MP has called it an outrage that it is still being displayed.

The brick should be removed from the wall and destroyed it is causing an outrage, the Daily Star quoted Bob Wareing, 78, a Liverpool Labour MP, as saying.

Glitter should not be honoured his name no longer reminds people about music, only the terrible crimes he committed. Removing the brick would be the right and decent thing to do, he added.

But the Caverns spokesman Bill Heckle said the decision not to remove it was made with considerable thought.

We made a conscious decision to leave the Gary Glitter brick where it is, he said.

We see the wall as more like an historical document than a tourist attraction, he added. (ANI)
