Iconic gates made famous by a Beatles song were painted yellow by a mysterious “artist”. Merseyside Police were making enquiries after tourists arrived at the entrance to former children’s home Strawberry Field in Woolton yesterday to find the top half of one of the gates had been painted yellow.
The message “There is always a field for imagination. John you know you should be glad” had been daubed on the wall next to the gates – which became a place of pilgrimage for fans of the Fab Four after John Lennon penned the song Strawberry Fields Forever. Police said the incident was reported to them by a tour operator who arrived at the gates just before midday and found the yellow paint still wet.
