Radio Southport is On Air

A new local community radio station was launched on Saturday, 7 November 2015 for a 1 month broadcasting test, on 87.7FM, a frequency approved by Ofcom. Broadcasting from the Wayfarers Arcade, they cover all things Southport, in the run up to Christmas.  "Sandgrounder Radio, or Southport Radio is a brand new and exciting radio station for Southport. It's to give the people of the area a voice and we hope, will help promote local groups and activities in the run up to Christmas." said Neil Newton. Neil invited us over to see what was going on, on one of his Breakfast Shows and we found Jonathan Cunningham MBE, from Birkdale based STORM Consultancy explaining about his latest idea. We found out that on New Year's Day, his staff and his family are holding a very unusual event, based on the XtremeSTORM idea called:- 'The Fernley.' It will see brave families swimming in the Marine Lake and also burning off the Christmas excesses, with a run or walking on a short course. The event aims to recognise one of Southport's greatest benefactors, John Fernley, who built schools, colleges, observatories and gifted the Southport lifeboats. The Eliza Fernley was the doomed Southport Lifeboat that was sadly lost. That was, and is, still the world's worst ever Lifeboat disaster. We also met up with Debi Jones who then took over from Neil for the lunchtime slot. This was an extremely interesting experience and lot of interesting bits of information are being put out, between the music tracks. So do tune in... The last day of the stations Broadcasting is 4 December 2015.... But they hope to then return to the airwaves very soon!

CCTV image issued after a bike was taken from Lime Street Station

THE British Transport Police have asked the public for help tracking down a man they think can help them with their enquiries. The blue Strava highbred bike was taken at around 11.30pm on Saturday, 7 November 2015, from Liverpool Lime Street Station. Officers believe the man in the image could have vital information about the incident, do you know who is he? If you know them, or have any information about the incident, please give us a call on:- 0800 40 50 40 or ring Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:- 0800 555 111. Investigating officer PC Ian Williamson said:- "The bike, which is worth around £335, had been left in the bike racks on the Skelhorne Street side of the station. A man approached the bike with bolt cutters and used these to break the lock before cycling off on the stolen bike. Thieves should be aware that most cycle racks are covered by CCTV, so it's only a matter of time before we track them down. We are also working closely with cycle and second hand shops, monitoring online auction sites and advertising sites to make it more difficult for thieves to sell on stolen property."
