Flats closed on Talbot Street, Southport, by Court Order

MERSEYSIDE Police have been granted a closure order for a block of flats, located in Southport, on Friday, 8 July 2016, following reports of drug activity and antisocial behaviour. The order was granted for 8 flats, at 15 Talbot Street, by South Sefton Magistrates Court, and will remain in place until Saturday, 8 October 2016. The orders were applied for by the Local Neighbourhood Policing Team, in response to community intelligence in relation to the supply of drugs.

Superintendent Dawn McNally said:- "By liaising with local councillors and residents evidence was gathered and collated by our Officers over a period of time. This was presented to the court and the order was granted. The complaints received included incidents of anti social behaviour, drug dealing and drug taking linked to the address and people calling there. The order was approved in court and means that nobody can visit the address other than the owner. Anyone, other than those specified in the order, found to be on the premises will be subject to arrest. The order will run for 3 months and will be reviewed by Officers at its conclusion. I want to assure our communities that we will continue to target offenders and any properties associated with them who continue to cause problems for the community, and will do this using all lawful powers available to us in order to make Sefton a safer and more peaceful place to live. This closure order was only made possible due to the assistance of the local community, and the hard work and diligence of our Officers, and we will continue to be robust in tackling criminal activity and anti social behaviour. I would encourage any members of the community who have any information to call us via our 101 number or through Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:- 0800 555 111."

Driver advice for RHS Tatton Show

THE Highways Agegency in England are reminding drivers using the M56, A556 and M6 in Cheshire that the annual RHS Tatton Show is taking place over 20 July and Sunday, 24 July 2016. They are saying that all drivers travelling through the area or to the show itself are should plan ahead and check traffic conditions before setting out. Highways England Events Planning Manager Chris Chadwick said:- “This is a long standing event in the region’s summer calendar and we are not anticipating any major traffic problems, but we always encourage people to check before they travel when we know there are large events taking place. As usual, Highways England traffic officers will be monitoring the motorway network to respond to any incidents and we will also be setting signs to advise drivers of any problems. Drivers can help themselves by checking travel conditions before setting out and by ensuring they are prepared in the event of a breakdown or being stuck in traffic or behind an incident.”

Although Highways England is not anticipating major traffic issues it is likely that many drivers heading to the show will use the M56, A556 and M6 during part of their journeys to the event at Tatton Park, near Knutsford. With some congestion around Junctions 19 and 20 of the M6 and Junction 7 of the M56 will be possible, at times throughout the event. Highways England traffic officers at the North West regional control centre will be setting signs before and during the event to give advice to drivers and the motorway routes will be supervised by on road patrols from the outstation at Knutsford. Highways England is also advising drivers heading to the show to stick to any signed routes to minimise the chance of delays. During the event, drivers using the northbound A556 will be prohibited from making right turns into the A5034 Mereside Road at Bucklow Hill and into Cherry Tree Lane at Rostherne. Northbound drivers will be able to access these routes from the A556 by joining the southbound carriageway via Bowdon Roundabout. Drivers using the M56 are reminded the Eastbound exit slip road, at Junction 7, is closed until November 2016.

The Royal Horticultural Society’s website features full information about the show including public transport options and advice for drivers. The show is open between 10am and 6.30pm each day except on the Sunday when it closes at 5pm. Updated travel bulletins can be found on our hub website, but please only log on if safe to do so!
