CCTV images released
following reports of an attempted robbery at a jewellers
MERSEYSIDE Police Detectives have
issued CCTV images of 2 males, following reports of an attempted robbery at a
jewellers, in Southport, on Wednesday, 31 May 2017, at around 9.35am. We
are told that 2 males had entered Prestige Diamonds, on Lord Street, by Costa
Coffee, and the shops staff were concerned about the behaviour of them.
The staff then activated a fogging device and we are told that an unknown
substance was then sprayed in the shop and the 2 then left the shop. It is not
believed anything was taken. Following the incident a member of staff was taken
to Hospital as a precaution, sue to a substance being reported to have been
sprayed. The staff member was later allowed home, with sore eyes, but no
permanent damage. Detectives have issued the CCTV stills of 2 males who they
believe could help them with their enquiries.
Detective Inspector Robbie Moss said:-
"We would ask anyone who recognises either of the 2 men, or the men themselves,
to come forward, as we believe they may have information which could help with
our enquiries. I would also continue to appeal for anyone who was in the
vicinity of Lord Street, who may have seen anything suspicious, to contact us.
It would have been busy in the area at the time and members of the public may
have seen the 2 men either close to the shop prior to the incident or leaving
the area afterwards."
Anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police on:- 0151 777 3847
or the Crimestoppers line anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
2 males wanted for questioning in connection with a burglary
MERSEYSIDE Police have issued CCTV images of 2 males wanted for
questioning in connection with a burglary, at a family home, in the Mossley
Hill area of Liverpool. The property was broken into, at around
4am, on 10 April 2017 and the handbag of a woman occupier stolen containing
her purse. In the following days her stolen debit card was used at a number
of Petrol Stations within the area and a McDonalds takeaway. Police believe
the offenders may have been responsible for a number of other similar
burglary incidents and are appealing for public help in finding the 2 males
captured by CCTV cameras.
A Police spokesman said:- "The CCTV pictures are of very good quality
and we are certain there are people who could help is in identifying and
finding these 2 individuals. Burglaries are a particularly unpleasant crime.
They have a serious impact on victims, who feel vulnerable and anxious as a
result and we are determined to bring to justice the people responsible for
this particular crime. Anyone who believes they can identify these two males
is urged to contact Police on:- 101 or Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555111."
Future scientists aim for the skies at
Thornton Science Park
THE scientists and engineers of the future have been honing their skills during
a number of workshops at the University of Chester's Thornton Science Park.
Year 8 and 9 pupils from schools across the North West and beyond, as well as
RAF cadets, learnt how to build (and successfully fly) a computer controlled
airship. They also took part in a simulated cyber intelligence and digital
forensics operation to bring cyber criminals to justice.
In total, over the last 2 months, 280 young people have participated in STEM
(Science Technology Engineering and Maths) workshops organised by the University
of Chester's Faculty of Science and Engineering and the Royal Air Force.
Among the schools taking part have been:-
► Ercall Wood Technical College, Telford.
► Knutsford Academy, Knutsford.
► Merchant Taylors' Boys School, Crosby.
► Penketh High School, Warrington.
► Sir William Stanier Community School, Crewe.
► St John Plessington Catholic College, Bebington, Wirral.
► The Mosslands School, Wallasey.
► University Academy Warrington.
► Upton by Chester High School.
Angela Lupton, HE STEM Co-ordinator at the Faculty of Science and Engineering,
said:- "We always receive excellent feedback from our workshops and this series
has been no exception. It is always a pleasure to see the inspiration and
enjoyment that the pupils gain from these experiences. We would also like to
thank the RAF for their help in making this possible.
Throughout the year, we host a variety of free STEM events, designed to inspire
young people and raise awareness of higher level study and future career
opportunities in STEM industries. If you are interested in coming along, please
