CCTV APPEAL -
INCIDENTS ON BUSES
MERSEYSIDE Police have
released CCTV stills of a man officers would like to speak to as he
may have information in relation to 2 incidents that have occurred
on public transport in the Merseyside area recently.
The 1st incident occurred on
Friday, 20 September 2013. At about 6.10pm, a 27 year old woman got
onto a bus at James Street, Liverpool City Centre to Huyton. During
the journey a man sat next to the woman and touched her on the leg

The 2nd incident occurred on
Friday, 27 December. At about 1.10pm a 21 year old woman got onto a
bus at Queens Square, Liverpool City Centre to Southport. During the
journey a man sat next to the woman and touched her inappropriately
on the leg. When the woman alighted from the bus the man again
grabbed her and the woman later called police.
Both women were left shaken following their ordeal, but were
uninjured. In both instances the man is described as
being Asian, aged between 20 and 30, of a slim build with stubble on
his face. He was wearing a black waterproof jacket. Officers
believe the 2 incidents are linked. Detectives believe the man
pictured may be able to help them with their enquiries and would
urge him or anyone who recognises him to get in touch.
Detective Inspector Andy Black, said:- "These must have been
distressing incidents for both women involved. No one should be
subjected to such behaviour and our officers are actively seeking
the man responsible. I would urge anyone with information to contact
Sefton CID on:- 0151 777 3055 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:-
0800 555 111.”
and tear repairs for M60 in south Manchester
ON the 8 January 2014, the
Highways Agency has announced that wear and tear repairs, worth
£190,000, will be taking place along the M60 in South Manchester
later this month; providing safer and smoother journeys for drivers.
The work includes:-
► Renewing road markings along both the clockwise and anti-clockwise
carriageways between Junction 5 at Princess Parkway and Junction 8
► Tackling potholes and renewing road markings along both the
clockwise and anti-clockwise carriageways between junction 10 at
Trafford Boulevard and junction 11 at Barton.
► Resurfacing the entry slip road for the clockwise carriageway at
junction J9 at Trafford Park.
► Resurfacing the exit slip road from the clockwise carriageway
junction 11 at Barton.
The project will start on Thursday, 23 January 2013, and should be
completed by the middle of March.
To minimise inconvenience to motorway users all the work; which
involves some lane and slip road closures with short and
clearly-signed diversions in place; will be done overnight when
traffic is lightest.
The work will also require a full closure of either the clockwise or
anti-clockwise carriageway for the Junction 10 to Junction 11 works.
Clearly signed diversions from these junctions; as well as
alternative diversions from Junctions ahead of these; will be in
The overnight work will be done along one section of the motorway
over a few nights at a time and between 10pm and 5am each night
except on Saturday and Sunday mornings when the finish time will be
The work has also been planned around known events; such as major
football matches; in Manchester City Centre. Work maybe postponed or
the start to an evening’s work delayed to allow event goers a smooth
journey away from the City Centre. Other events such as concerts or
Champions League fixtures which have yet to be confirmed may also
trigger these arrangements.
Highways Agency project sponsor Jakub Malaj said:- "These are
routine projects to tackle wear and tear along parts of the M60
around South Manchester and we have worked hard to time the work so
it causes as little inconvenience to drivers as possible. The
resurfacing and road marking work will ensure drivers can continue
to enjoy safe, smooth and reliable journeys.”
