Wirral motorists to be vigilant against thieves

WITH Christmas fast approaching, Merseyside Police is warning drivers to be vigilant against thieves seeking to ruin the season by stealing items from their cars.

Theft of items including presents from cars is a particularly prevalent during the winter months.

During November and December last year 1,060 reports of items having been stolen from vehicles were received by the force.

The majority of these thefts were from insecure vehicles, with the offenders simply taking anything that was readily to hand.

Business as usual as New Brighton awaits the next phase of resort’s success story

Posted 21 November 2014 - 4:22pm
Restaurants, attractions and businesses in New Brighton are trading as usual as work continues on the next phase of the resort’s improvement.

Since September, the Council has been carrying out a £1.3m scheme which will improve New Brighton seafront between the bottom of Victoria Parade and Rowson Street, and improve access from the promenade to the Victoria Road area of the resort. The ‘public realm’ scheme will include improvements to paving and benches along the seafront, and the removal of brickwork planters between the Queen’s Hotel and Victoria Parade to provide additional parking spaces.

The scheme will eventually enable two-way traffic to flow around the existing Town Square ‘plinth,’ and have a positive impact on businesses in Victoria Parade and Victoria Road with increased traffic and footfall.

All businesses are open as usual while construction work continues. Cllr Pat Hackett, Wirral’s Cabinet Member for the Economy, said: ‘We will get the job finished as quickly as we can, and would like to thank businesses for their continued patience and understanding while the works progress.

‘We are talking about short term pain for long term gain; upon completion the scheme will be well worth the wait and in the meantime, we’d like to urge visitors to continue to enjoy the attractions and businesses services as they did in the summer, they are all still very much open for business.’

This is the latest phase in the New Brighton success story that has seen the resort benefit from millions of pounds of public and private sector investment. This includes the £60million Marine Point www.marinepoint.co.uk development and the £12million redevelopment of the historic Floral Pavilion Theatre www.floralpavilion.com, which has become a prestigious business and leisure venue and which includes a state-of-the-art 800 seat theatre with complementary conference and meeting facilities. This has resulted in successful productions and record breaking attendances, which is expected to see visitor numbers to the theatre alone exceeding 150,000 people per year.

20th Nov 2014 12:17pm Hamilton Square Station- Posters by RUDEBOX

http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/watch-hamilton-square-station-refurbishment-8136696

Posters and old station signage dating back to the 1940s, 50s and 60s have been uncovered at Hamilton Square station as redevelopment work continues.

The posters were discovered behind walls on the platforms after they were removed as part of the station’s upgrade.

Among the curiosities revealed are an old ECHO advertising poster which reads: “Mrs Maybrick: Liverpool’s flypaper murderess” – a reference to an ECHO series about the 1889 trial of Florence Maybrick, who was convicted of poisoning her husband James but later acquitted – along with ones promoting New Brighton and a concert for the Royal Philharmonic Hall Hungarian Relief Fund.

The original sign for Hamilton Square station has also been uncovered during the work.

Even though they have been hidden from public view for decades, the posters are still clearly legible.

See the posters and the refurbishment under way here


VIEW GALLERY
Network Rail, working with Merseytravel and Merseyrail, is investing £4m to improve platform and tunnel areas which will include new flooring, brighter lighting and better passenger information.

The station will look cleaner, lighter and less cluttered and it will be easier for passengers to plan their journey – see the artist's impressions here.

Sarah Wharton, project manager, said: “The posters have been photographed and recorded by local historians and are an interesting insight into the old station, Liverpool and Merseyside in years gone by.

“Work continues to transform the station and the redeveloped facilities will be a positive addition to the railway in Merseyside, building on the recent improvements made at Lime Street, Liverpool Central and James Street.”

The station is closed to passengers until spring next year.

Trains continue to run through the station but are not stopping.

Birkenhead dad convicted of breaking baby's bones in violent 'shaking' incident just months after being jailed for beating puppy


First published 1 hour ago in News
by Lynda Roughley

A WIRRAL man was today convicted of causing a catalogue of injuries to his six-week-old son, including brain injuries.

Sean Cottrell was found by a jury to have broken the infant's right leg by picking him up by it and breaking two ribs while squeezing him. He then shook him so hard that his brain struck the inside of his skull causing bleeding and possible long term problems.

Unknown to the jury of nine women and three men Cottrell was jailed in August this year for 14 weeks for beating a four-month-old puppy so badly that it had to be put to sleep.

The 22-year-old Cottrell, of Park Road South, was convicted of two offences of causing grievous bodily harm to his son and one of inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent.

It had been alleged that he had also attacked the baby in an earlier incident leaving him with fractures where six ribs meet the spine but the jury acquitted him of those grievous bodily harm charges.

Remanding him in custody until January to enable psychiatric and pre-sentence reports to be prepared Judge Robert Warnock said that the issue of Cottrell's dangerousness must be considered.


He told Cottrell, who showed no emotion, that a custodial sentence was inevitable.

During his week long trial Liverpool Crown Court heard that the boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was born on May 26 last year and was admitted to Arrowe Park Hospital, Wirral, with the injuries when he was just six weeks old.

"These serious injuries were caused by the defendant twisting and pulling the complainant's leg and by compressing his chest in a squeezing action with enough force to break the ribs in the course of shaking him violently.

The injuries were a spiral feature to his right leg, fractures to the left sixth and seventh ribs, haemorrhaging within and around the brain tissues and fractures where six left ribs meet the spine.

The child lived with his mum, Carla, in Howson Street, Rock Ferry, Wirral, and Cottrell regularly stayed there. On July 9 Cottrell was alone with the child for 15 minutes and when the baby's mum and grandmother, Carol, returned from the shops he was screaming, had a bruise to his lip with a spot of blood and a graze to his right elbow. When asked about that Cottrell said he did not know what had happened.

He was taken to hospital two days later after he shrieked when moved and as well as bruises to his right thigh and buttock, the other injuries were found.

Mr Stables said that the baby now faces the risk of developmental problems, learning difficulties and behavioural problems though the future is currently unclear.

Cottrell denied inflicting injuries on the tot and claimed that they happened when he tripped over while holding him and fell on top of him. He said he had been too embarrassed to tell anyone and that if the injuries were deliberate Carla or Carol must have been to blame.

The jury took about five and a half hour to reject his claims about the July 9 incident. After the hearing the child's mum was in tears and comforted by a friend and mother.

Cottrell had pleaded guilty in July to causing unnecessary suffering to his defenceless Staffordshire bull terrier cross “Dexter" and failing to provide proper and necessary veterinary care and attention following the beating.

His cruelty was discovered after a neighbour heard blows and screaming coming from Cottrell's flat. He claimed he had hit it once because it misbehaved but a vet, who had to put it to sleep, likened its injuries to being hit by a car.

Old-maps.org.uk has been a useful source of information for many of us on here who want to look at old OS maps.

Unfortunately, they have re-designed the front end of their site, making it very difficult to read anything of the map underneath. The map is shaded in blue, and is small. If you try to enlarge it it will tell you that you can't - unless you subscribe for £9.99 per month.

WIRRAL patients are being advised to refrain from attending A&E unless it is urgent.

The number of people going to A&E and calling 999 has caused severe pressure on the health service over the last few days.


NHS teams across Wirral are working extremely hard to cope with this demand.
