Discs can cut through paperwork.

PAPERWORK could become a thing of the past at Liverpool's city archive.

Information from millions of dusty files is being transferred to computer discs.

About 700,000 documents in 160 filing cabinets have so far been transferred to just 20 compact discs.

This has freed up 1,000 square-feet of office space, the size of a tennis court, which had been used to store files.

Each CD can accommodate the same amount of information as eight filing cabinets.

The council says the change will save pounds 100,000.

A spokesman said: "We aim to get rid of 10 million documents, freeing an area the size of Goodison Park or Anfield.

"Dozens of council rooms will be freed - saving a massive amount of money on accommodation costs."
