Advice for Aintree and Maghull residents ahead of Aintree Festival

Police are encouraging residents in Aintree and Maghull to contact their neighbourhood policing team with any issues or concerns they have ahead of the Aintree Festival which gets underway next Thursday (4 April).

The event runs across three days from Thursday, April 4 to Saturday, April 6 and with more than 150,000 race-goers set to attend, the community’s dedicated neighbourhood officers want to make sure residents experience minimal disruption.

Community officers will speak to residents living in some of the busiest streets around the racecourse to let them know who they can contact if they experience any problems with issues such as car parking, litter and anti-social behaviour during the event. Letter drops will also be carried out in the local area.

Despite the large crowds attending the festival, the vast majority of race-goers have a safe and enjoyable day and a multi-agency operation involving police officers from across the Force will once again aim to ensure this year’s event is no different.

Community Inspector Duncan Swan said: “Firstly, I would like to say how grateful we are year after year to the local residents for their co-operation and patience throughout the Aintree Festival. Thousands of visitors attend each year and have a great time and I am sure this year will be no different.

“We recognise that large numbers of people can have an impact on the local community and I want to reassure people that, as well as the policing operation for the event itself, my community team will be there to address any concerns residents may have.

“I would urge any local residents who may have experienced problems in previous years, or have any concerns about the upcoming festival to please get in touch. We are determined to ensuring the event runs smoothly and is enjoyable for all.”

Aintree and Maghull residents can contact their neighbourhood team by sending an email to B.Community.Hub.1@merseyside.police.uk.

Appeal following burglary for superbikes in Southport

Police are issuing images of two bikes stolen in a burglary in Southport yesterday, Monday 25 March.

At some time between midnight and 6am, two off-road Supermoto bikes were stolen from the garage of a house in Marshside, Southport.

The bikes are both pictured, and enquiries are ongoing to establish their movements and where they are being stored.

Community Policing Inspector Graham Fisher said: “We believe that this was a targeted burglary for these high-powered bikes, which could now be used in crime and anti-social behaviour in our communities.

“Please help us find those responsible by coming forward with what you know, any sightings or dashcam and home CCTV which shows them in the area.

“We will act on all information provided to ensure that those involved are brought to justice and the streets made safer from the harm that the illegal use of off-road bikes causes.”

Anyone with information can contact @MerPolCC, call 101 with reference 19100133032 or contact @CrimestoppersUK anonymously on 0800 555 111. Follow our local @SeftonPolice Facebook and @MerPolSouthport on Twitter for the latest appeals, updates and crime prevention advice in your area.
