Everton fans sock it to their team
Football matches are perhaps no stranger to strange goings-on and Wednesday night's game between Liverpool and Everton was no exception as socks rained down on the stadium.

No, it is not another freakish turn for the British weather, but a protest against Everton's proposed move to Kirkby.

When the match reached half-time, fans threw pairs of rolled-up socks on to the pitch, thought to be a reference to people from Kirkby being known as sock-robbers.

"I was wearing three pairs last night, so I was well prepared," one football fan told the Liverpool Echo.

Jennifer Fong, writing for Canwest, said in recent weeks that layering-up socks is one way to keep extra warm throughout the cold weather.

She claimed that adding layers of clothes can also help keep out the chill, which may be useful as the Met Office predicts that the weather will stay much the same over the coming days.
