Travellers move into Formby Village!

FOR the very 1st time that we know of, a group of travellers, reported to be from Ireland, have set up camp in Formby's only free car park, taking up many car park spaces. 2 local businesses, who do not want to be named, have told us:- "This is all we need. Our businesses are being pushed to the brink by ever falling trade and now this. They are taking around 10 spaces, if not more. Ok, they have to go somewhere, but the area already has a site for them." Another added:- "The Village is, as many know, at breaking point, thanks to lack of free parking facilities. Already elderly people find it hard to park in the area and this is not helping. That car park has already lost spaces due to building work, now this! We hope they are not going to be a regular feature, as our Village just can't take it!"

Others have questioned why they have taken up so many spaces and some have also questioned if they will be fined. We have put a request in to Sefton MBC for more information on this and Chris Owen, from Sefton Council's Corporate Communications has said that:- "We are unaware of it in this office. If we do get any information we will issue it, as normal, via our Council website. We will allow you then to copy it from our website, should we issue any statement." What are your views on this? Please email us your thoughts to:- News24@SouthportReporter.Com and let us know what you really think...
