Warning to motorists and pet owners in Southport

OVER the last week we have been hearing reports of nails being deliberately dropped on side roads. Unlike previously when glass bottles have been deliberately broken on roads and pavements, these nails are an added worry. They are hard to spot and if driven over, can cause punctures as are often angled pointing upwards, lodged within cracks within the road surface. Also dog walkers are taking note as some of these nails have been placed pointing upwards on pavements. Often the ones on pavements tend to be carpet tacks, so if you have shoes on, they should be ok if stood on, but don't walk around in bare feet. If you spot anyone deliberately dropping nails on the roads or pavements, contact the Police on: - 101 and if you can, once they have gone, and if safe to do so, please remove them, unless told otherwise by Police. If any businesses see CCTV images of the people doing this, again please let Police know. These are just a few of the nails we have found on the roads next to Lord Street. Let's hope this is just an isolated incident.
