CCTV image appeal following an assault

MERSEYSIDE Police Detectives have released CCTV image of a man they wish to speak, after a male, in his 60's, was allegedly assaulted outside a Bootle Pub. The incident is said to have happed on Saturday, 12 August 2017, at about 7pm. Merseyside Police have told us that the victim was punched at a side doorway of the Mayflower Public House, located in The Palantine, Bootle New Strand. The after reporting the incident, the following morning, the victim was taken to Hospital and received stitches to a wound in his head.

Detective Chief Inspector Gayle Rooney said:- "This appears to have been an unprovoked assault which has resulted in a head injury and a long term impact on the victim due to the level of violence involved. We are still trying to establish the exact circumstances and want to hear from anyone who was in or outside the premises at the time, or the man pictured, who we think may have valuable information. It was busy in the pub at the time, and someone may have seen the incident itself or know who this man is. We are relentless in pursuing anyone involved in violence, and ensuring that they are put before the courts. I can assure people that information will be acted upon."

Anyone with information is asked to contact:- 101 quoting incident number:- 0517205814 or you can leave information anonymously and for free on:- 0800 555 111.

Civic Service focuses on regeneration

LIVERPOOL'S Annual Civic Service will celebrate the City's incredible renaissance through regeneration. Led by Lord Mayor, Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, it will take place at Liverpool Parish Church, Our Lady and St Nicholas, on Sunday 29 October at 11.45am in front of an invited audience of civic dignitaries and representatives from community and voluntary groups. It will include readings from regeneration expert Professor Michael Parkinson, the Associate Pro Vice Chancellor for civic engagement and Executive Director of the Heseltine Institute for Public Policy and Practice at the University of Liverpool. There will also be an address from Reverend Bill Addy, Chief Executive of Liverpool BID (Business Improvement District) Company and hymns led by Belvedere Academy Chamber Choir. Councillor Kennedy said:- "Anyone who has been to Liverpool in recent years knows it is a City that has been transformed through incredible regeneration projects. From Liverpool One, the Arena and Convention Centre and the Pier Head through to new housing in Croxteth and Norris Green and the new district centres being created in Everton and Anfield, regeneration has transformed this City's fortunes. It has given us the infrastructure to be able to attract millions of visitors every year and the confidence to stage major cultural events that are amongst the best in the world. And all around us we can see the City's ambitions for the next phase of growth, whether it is the Knowledge Quarter in Edge Hill, Liverpool Waters and Ten Streets in the north and the Festival Gardens site in the South. So it is right and proper that we give thanks for the positive impact of regeneration at this year's Civic Service."
