We have been told by our friends at the Champion about a problem on Google.  We are shocked and upset to learn of it and we publicly thank the Champion for making us aware of this issue.  As a result, this page has been replaced due to request from Family of a murder victim.

We are sorry and shocked that Google has used the image of the victim as an advert for the Town!  This does not reflect well on the Town or area and as we strive so hard to promote this Town, that it shocks us this has happened!

It is not and we stress NOT a fault on our side, but is a problem with Google and the way it indexes (operates).

    We have no way of saying why Google picked this image...  This should not be taken as any reflection on our coverage or on us.  The information and images had been supplied historically to us by both Merseyside Police and another website.

We feel strongly that as a registered and respected media outlet, we remove any image or information that might harm or distress anybody in this way! 

We have contacted Google for a statement.  

The image has also been replaced with a photo of the Town by us.
