Friend sent me a link from Merseyside police today, describing an attack on two boys at night in Sefton Park. Apparently a gang of masked men attacked them, stabbed one and stole a bike.

Now whether the police only have the word of these two lads on what happened or there are other witnesses I can't say.  Clearly a stabbing and theft is terrible, even though the incident sounds... embellished, shall we say? 

I hope the attackers, whoever they are, are swiftly dealt with. I've often cut through Sefton Park at night, and reports like this are freaking scary.

Not really news, but I noticed that they've completely demolished the old TJs building on London Road. I realise that it was a bit of hodge-podge of several buildings thrown together, but it's still a bit of a shame.  Once of the buildings was rather old and nice looking, so I was kind of hoping the rest of the complex could have been dismantled and that part retained. I guess it just wasn't practical though.

Shame to see another building from my childhood gone. I've not had a proper look around town for years, I doubt I'd recognise it now.

My Dad took me there to the restaurant for my dinner the day of my first game. We went to Anfield early, got tickets for the Main Stand (Block M) and then we went into town to eat.

Lovely story that, Rob. My dad couldn't afford to take us the match; we grew up in poverty pretty much. Then again, he was a Blue so it was probably good that we didn't 😁

Went to the cafe and restaurant many times with my mum when I was a kid though. Felt really classy.  ;D

First meal my dad took me to was the Kong Nam in Lord Street.

Never went in there.

When we went out, which wasn't that often, we used to either go the Berni overlooking the Mersey at the Pier Head, the Golden Phoenix or into China Town.

A couple of years later it would be the Pen and Wig, the Croc, then the Why Not and the Kong Nam for a meal and an after hours drink.

Then the last 86 home. If we were flush we’d miss the bus and go to the Victoriana or Mardi.

I was doing some deliveries last night (second job: Tory Britain in 2022, though I'm somewhat grateful to be able to I suppose). It was wild out...

Police around Greenbank Park (later carrying out a controlled detonation), police cars on both Smithdown Road and Price Alfred Road, and a heavy police presence, road closure, and hovering helicopter following a shooting on/near Mill Lane.

Yeah, I saw that when I went to check the Echo website about the bomb. Couldn't find that on their site though.

I have a friend who lives close to Smithdown. She said a guy found the bomb when he bent down to pick up his dropped glasses. Based on what she said I think it was an incendiary device of some sort.

They can always go lower.
The next Government Commissioners report will probably suggest it has unfortunately mate, there's already leaks. But beyond that hopefully we'll all see a tangible improvement journey and the council will get itself into a better place despite - and this must not be forgotten - gruelling and societal damaging ongoing government cuts.

Wouldn't surprise me if the government just dissolved LCC altogether at some point and just lumped us in with Greater Manchester.  :(

It only started today, so maybe another one is burst? Or maybe a water treatment plant has run over.

I'm in Litherland just now and can't smell anything nasty. I used to work in Maghull and the farms used to do a lot of muck spreading at times. The smell was quite localised though.

Maybe it's the sewage plant next to Bramley Moore? That often stinks to high heaven.

I was just a mile away from the burst water main at the weekend but didn't notice any odour from it.

The one that's been there quite a while, or the one that's in build?




I'm in the south end,  and can still smell it. There's a chemical stink to it too, not really like a sewage plant?

Quality journalism at it's best. Read some facebook posts, pick some quotes from them and there's you're story. Fucking hell, if you want to call yourself a journo just ask the local authorities, if they know what causes the stench. It's one phone call or e-mail FFS. Even if you don't get an answer you can still put it into the article to show that you at least tried and aren't a lazy twat...

Yes, they did an entire article simply reposting speculation from the comments section from their original story.

I also wish they'd read before posting too. The spelling is often wrong. I'm no English expert myself, but I'm just some clown on the internet. They are professional writers.
