Formatting an 0151 number

Local telephone numbers in Liverpool are seven digits long. An 0151 number should be displayed in the format:
0151 xxx xxxx or (0151) xxx xxxx

For international callers, use: +44 151 xxx xxxx

Badly-written or misquoted phone numbers sometimes suggest the 'area code' for this area is 01512, 01513, 01514, 01515, 01516, 01517, 01518 or 01519, followed by a six-digit local number; this has never been the case.

Displaying 0151 numbers in the correct format makes them easier to remember and dial correctly. [How...]
