Letter to Editor:- "13 mile walk to help Queenscourt Hospice"

"I'M doing this 13 mile walk from Southport to Skelmersdale, in about 3 weeks. I will be starting from Queenscourt we’re I will be cheered of by members of staff that work there I am doing this walk for Queenscourt because as of the current situation all of there charity shops have closed and there fundraising events such as the Star Treck Walk which I mostly do every year has been cancelled so they have lost a lot of fundraising money so please any spare cash would be greatly appreciated especially from the amazing staff and patients getting all the care and support they need in such a safe happy as can be environment." Fundraiser, Paige Caddys.

4 arrested following an illegal rave in Rainford

4 males have been arrested and seized DJ equipment after attending a wooded area, located on private land, near New Cut Lane / Coach Road, close to Rainford, the M58 and Kirkby. following reports of an illegal rave. The following were arrested on suspicion of causing a public nuisance and using threatening or abusive words or behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress:-

► A 30 year old male, from Kensington.

► A 26 year old male, from Edge Hill.

► A 28 year old male, from Seaforth.

► A 24 year old male, from Walton, who was also arrested on suspicion of assaulting an emergency worker and possession of a Class A drug (cocaine)

All 4 have since been released on conditional bail while enquiries continue. A further 15 dispersal notices were provided, 12 people dealt with for drugs offences, 10 dispersal zone notices issued, and 15 Covid-19 tickets issued.

A significant amount of rubbish, alcohol containers and evidence of drug misuse was located and the site, as Officers seized DJ equipment, lighting and lasers.

We have been told that Merseyside Police also turned away around 200 people in vehicles and on foot, along with closing off the East Lancs Road, at the junctions of Catchdale Moss Lane and Coopers Lane, in order to deter further attendees from gaining access and a dispersal order was introduced covering the area of woodland.

Chief Superintendent Ngaire Waine said:- "All those attending have put themselves and others in the community at significant risk. Not only have they risked catching and spreading the Coronavirus, but due to the numbers of people consuming of drugs and alcohol in dark woods, somebody could have quite easily got seriously hurt or worse. Indeed it was reported 1 male sustained a broken leg, 1 female a broken ankle and another female suffered burns to her legs. Government guidance still states that we must continue social distancing, that we must only meet in groups of 6 at most, and act sensibly. Clearly, those attending this rave took no heed whatsoever of that. They also left behind a huge amount of rubbish which will now have to be removed. It is clear that the organisers and those attending care very little for public health, the community surrounding them or indeed their own safety. It is particularly disappointing that some of those attending purported to be protesting against the lockdown in order to make a vain attempt to legitimise their attendance at the rave."

Chief Supt Waine added:- "Having to deal with these sorts of unnecessary incidents puts an extra strain on both police and our partners, at a time when all key workers face a huge challenge to join the national effort to beat this pandemic while continuing to protect the public. A dispersal zone remains in place at the site today and our Local Officers will conduct high visibility patrols of the area to prevent gatherings like this happening again. Finally, I want to appeal directly to everyone who attended this rave, to pause and think about their actions. Please continue to follow guidance in place to protect yourselves and others. If you are a parent or guardian, please ask where your child is going and who they’re meeting up with. If we all pull together, we will be able to return to normality a lot sooner Anyone with information on who organised this event, who attended, any future planned similar events or information connected with the 2 assaults is asked to get in touch or contact Crimestoppers UK on:- 0800 555 111 completely anonymously."
