He is know to have links to the Liverpool and Southport areas of Merseyside. We are told my Merseyside Police that:- "Mr Anthony Morgan has previously lived in Ullet Road and Rocky Lane in Liverpool, but has recently he has been seen in the Lord Street area of Southport." Anyone who has seen him or knows who he is should call Merseyside Police on:- 0151 777 4848 or Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555 111. A photograph, issued by the Police, of him can be seen above.

Letters to the Editor:- "Toxic parks in Sefton"

"THE sun is coming out, and our parks are filling up with children playing, but Sefton Council is spraying toxic pesticides all over our streets and parks, just to kill weeds. The World Health Organisation has said these chemicals, called:- 'glyphosate', “probably cause cancer”. So 38 Degrees member Paul is campaigning to get the pesticides banned in Sefton. Several European Cities have already banned them, and now they've been joined by:- Edinburgh, Brighton, Aberdeen and Glastonbury in the UK too. People powered campaigns stopped these toxic chemicals being sprayed elsewhere; a huge petition could see Sefton become the next place to take a stand. If your readers think toxic chemicals don't have a place on Sefton's streets, then please sign the petition now by clicking on here. It only takes 20 seconds." Robin, Luke, Trish and the 38 Degrees Team

Editors note:- "We will be sending an email to Sefton MBC about this matter to see if they have any reaction. If they do, we will let you know as soon as we can. Please do let us know your views on this topic, via emailing us to:-"

Subscriptions due for garden waste collections

WIRRAL residents are reminded that subscriptions to the kerbside garden waste collection service are due for renewal. If you are 1 of those households who have opted in to receive the service last year, please don't forget that your subscription ends on 31 May 2016 and if you want to continue to receive collections after 1 June 2016, please contact Wirral MBC, on:- 0151 606 2004, Monday to Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm. The annual cost to receive the collections, which takes grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, leaves, weeds and flowers from outside residents' homes using their brown recycling bin, is £40 this year; or £35 for those who renew or subscribe online. The fortnightly collection days will also remain the same. Those who did not subscribe to the service last year, but want to do it this year can also now subscribe to receive the collections from 1 June 2016.

Cllr Bernie Mooney, Wirral Council Cabinet member for Environment, said:- "Residents should subscribe now to continue receiving collections and new subscribers are welcome. We'd encourage people to sign up online and receive the £5 discount; if you don't have online access at home, consider asking a friend or relative to subscribe on your behalf, or take advantage of the free IT facilities at Wirral's libraries. For those people who have garden waste, but don't want to pay for it to be collected from home, then we'd urge them to either take it to household recycling centres themselves or try to find other ways of recycling it, such as home composting."

To subscribe to the garden waste collection services and find out more about alternatives, such as home composting, visit:- Wirral.Gov.UK/GardenWaste.
