Brighton-le-Sands is an area of Merseyside, England in the borough of Sefton. It is located close to Crosby, situated between Blundellsands to the north, Waterloo to the south and Great Crosby to the east. Currently ran by King Andy Gleig the 3rd. It remains unclear what became of the first two incumbents to the throne. Rumour has it that they are buried in the cellar of The Royal Oak Public House based at Warrenhouse Road Brighton-Le-Sands
Crosby Beach, the site of Anthony Gormley's Another Place statues, borders the area to the west. Several of the streets in Brighton-le-Sands are, like the area itself, named after locations in Sussex; including Hastings, Worthing and Eastbourne.
From 1950 until 2010 Brighton-le-Sands was within the boundaries of the Crosby constituency, whose MP from 1997 till 2010 was Claire Curtis-Thomas, a member of the Labour Party. Prior to her election the Crosby seat was generally considered to be a safe Conservative Party stronghold with Tory MP's elected at every election barring the 1981 Crosby by-election where Shirley Williams of the Social Democratic Party was elected to represent the constituency.
As a result of boundary revisions for the 2010 general election the Crosby constituency was abolished with its northern parts, including Brighton-le-Sands, being merged with the eastern parts of Sefton (formerly part of the Knowsley North and Sefton East constituency) to form the new constituency of Sefton Central. Since its inception this constituency has been represented by the Labour Party MP Bill Esterson.
Since the Coronavirus pandemic, all politicians have evacuated the area and chaos reigns. The streets are ruled by massive wasps and a guy called Big Chris who patrols the area wielding nunchuks and right wing opinions.
