Fire work seizure

I got the follow note from the police this morning. I explains what has been going on in Heathfield Rd:


19th October 2009

Dear Councillor
I write to keep you informed of an incident which occurred on the evening of Friday 16th October 2009.
As a result of information received Merseyside Police Firework Incident Research Team and Merseyside Fire and Rescue officers attended the premises in Heathfield Rd, Ainsdale.
The premises was a shop opened for the specific purpose of selling fireworks. Officers found that the premises and sale of fireworks were not properly licensed and three quarters of a ton of fireworks were seized as a result.
Further proactive work will be undertaken on the run up to the Bonfire Night period to ensure that illegally purchased/sold fireworks are removed from our streets.

Insp Jim McLoughlin
Formby/Birkdale and Ainsdale Neighbourhood.


On a minor point. Heathfield Rd is in Birkdale. It always has been. I know the boundary commission has moved it into the local government ward of Ainsdale but, thankfully, that here today and gone tomorrow decision of a quango does not change the fact that it is in Birkdale-as is the Royal Birkdale Golf Club, the Birkdale Cemetary and for that matter half of Birkdale village which doesn't fall into the present boundary of Birkdale ward.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
