'Distant Shore' Southport's first fully independent feature
Shore is the first fully independent feature film to come
out of Southport, Merseyside, it has a totally original
screenplay written and adapted by Southport’s Tim Johnson.
Movie maker Tim has spent the last five years filming
Distant Shore without any funding at all.
The plot is set in the future. All you know is that it is in
the North England and the viewer is not told the year.
Nathan and Charlotte live a simple existence in a beachfront
shack. Nathan returns from scavenging to find
Charlotte missing. An injured stranger tells him a
gang have snatched Charlotte and travelled inland. Alone,
and unprepared, Nathan sets out to rescue her from the gang.

all future independent films makers, because Tim has created
this masterpiece by using only a handheld home
camcorder with amazing results.

CCTV images of Hoax caller!
have been issued to the media by Merseyside Police of a man they
would like to speak to in connection with a hoax call to Merseyside
Fire and Rescue.
Just before 2:00am on Saturday, 5 January 2008, the emergency
services received a call claiming a building was on fire on
Westfield Street in town centre.
Two fire engines attended and the
call was subsequently found to be a hoax. This put lives at
risk and wasted emergency services time and resources.
The CCTV shows a man, who police believe, will be able to help them
with their inquiries, in relation to the incident, and they are
urging him to come forward and contact the police.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information is asked to
contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or the Neighbourhood Action
Team on 0151 777 6050.
