CCTV APPEAL - ASSAULT,
LIVERPOOL CITY CENTRE
Police Detectives have released new CCTV pictures of three men they
want to speak to in connection with a serious, unprovoked assault in
Liverpool city centre which left a man with a fractured skull.
The incident happened outside the Lloyds TSB bank in Church Street,
Liverpool, at 2:25am, and involved the 45 year old victim being
punched once in the head, causing him to fall to the ground.
The victim suffered a fractured skull
and bleeding to the brain and has only recently been well enough to
leave hospital and continue his recovery at home in the London Rod
area following the January 28 attack.
Detective Constable Andy Ince from Liverpool North CID, said:- "This was a completely unprovoked attack late at night in the
city centre which left a man with very serious head injuries and in
hospital for a considerable amount of time. Thankfully he is
recovering well at home now but the offender has yet to be traced
and brought to justice. From studying CCTV from the area, we believe
these three men were in the area at the time of the assault and we
would very much like to speak to them in connection with it. I
would appeal for the men pictured, or anyone who recognises them, to
come forward so we can progress this investigation further."
Anyone with information is asked to call
Merseyside Police on:- 0151 777 6010 or Crimestoppers anonymously
on:- 0800 555 111.
Hospital says 'Thank you' for donations of Easter eggs for
Coward, Matron for Paediatrics and Neonatal Services at Southport &
Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust expressed her thanks to two
organisations who have generously donated Easter eggs to the
children's and neonatal wards. "I want to thank everyone for
their generosity towards the two units at Ormskirk. It's difficult
for both the children and their families when someone is in hospital
at such a family time and these little extras can help to make it a
One of the organisations is the Shared Services Unit of Barclaycard
in Kirby who have donated around 80 eggs and a number of Easter hats
and stickers to the children's ward.
The second organisation is St Helen's based Central Fitness who are
hosting a charity 'eggtravaganza' throughout April to
raise money for the Ormskirk Neonatal Unit. From April 1st until the
30th the company will be allowing members to bring a friend to the
Central Fitness gym for free if they donate an Easter egg to a
collection which will be presented to the parents and siblings of
babies in the neonatal unit.
and around Hightown have reported a number of bogus charity
collection leaflets dropping through letterboxes.
The leaflets ask for donations of clothing, sheets, handbags, shoes,
toiletries, mobile phones and claim the items will be sent to Third
World countries and reused.
Sefton Council Trading Standards have been contacted about the
leaflets and discovered the company number on leaflet shows it has
been dissolved for some time.
The traders were seen in a white van and have been operating in the
Hightown area for the past couple of weeks.
Sefton Council Trading Standards manager, Andrew Naisbitt, said:-
"Sadly some door to door collections are not made by genuine
registered charities, but by businesses who simply sell the goods
for profit. If consumers realise this, they may prefer to pass the
goods directly to a local registered charity shop. There are many
reputable charities that collect clothes and directly benefit good
causes but it is always a good idea to check the credentials of the
collectors before donating. If possible, try and make a note of the
description of the bogus collectors and the registration plate and
make and model of any of their vehicles to pass on."
