CCTV appeal following fail to stop at RTC in Wallasey

MERSEYSIDE Police have released CCTV footage following a fail to stop road traffic collision in Wallasey on Saturday, 17 January 2015. The incident happened at around 3.10pm, when a 69 year old man was cleaning his car, which was parked on Newton Road. He was stood in the road with his back to oncoming traffic when he was in collision with a car, which then failed to stop at the scene. The victim suffered a fractured pelvis and 2 fractured ribs, as a result of the collision. He was taken to hospital for treatment to his injuries and is now recovering at home. A report was made to the Police and Officers from the Matrix Serious Organised Crime Roads Policing Unit attended at the scene. CCTV from the area has been located and reviewed and an investigation into the full circumstances surrounding the incident is continuing. Constable Bryan Watts from the Roads Policing Unit said:- "The collision left the victim in complete shock and with a number of serious injuries. Thankfully, he has been discharged from hospital and is now recovering with his family. The CCTV we have issued appears to show a car, possibly a silver Skoda Fabia estate, colliding with the victim and we would appeal for the driver of that car to come forward so that we can speak to them and establish exactly what happened. The footage also shows a number of vehicles which pass by the incident immediately after it happened, including a distinctive white hackney cab. These drivers may have information which is vital for our investigation and I would appeal to them, or anyone else with information, however small, to get in touch with us as soon as possible." People can call the MSOC Roads Policing Unit on:- 0151 777 5747 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:- 0800 555 111.

Rail Delivery Group responds to passenger figures

RESPONDING to new regionalised rail passenger figures from the Office of Rail Regulation, a spokesman for the Rail Delivery Group, which represents Network Rail and train operators, said:- "There is more to do to make Britain's railway even better, but new and improved services combined with good value fares are attracting more passengers to travel by train. Passenger numbers have almost doubled since the late 1990's contributing to a fivefold increase in money being returned by operators to Government for investment in a better railway."
