Human rights is theme of Cherie's lecture in city.

CHERIE BOOTH will tonight launch the latest in a series of prestigious Liverpool lectures.

The barrister, who was brought up in Crosby, has been chosen to open the 10th anniversary of Liverpool John Moores' Roscoe Lecture Series.

An emeritus Chancellor of LJMU, the Prime Minister's wife will give a talk on the bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade, with a lecture about human rights.

Ms Booth said: "Rights are not just for those facing torture abroad or facing trial or asylum cases at home.

"Rights belong to us all."

A spokeswoman for LJMU said there was no fee for Ms Booth's appearance.

Speakers this year include Liverpool-born Attorney General Lord Goldsmith QC, BBC News reader George Alagiah, chief executive of the commission for racial equality Trevor Phillips and Esther Rantzen.

Cherie Booth's lecture is at 5pm in the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. All lectures are free but entrance is by ticket only.
