Disturbing news that's also worrying. I suppose it's inevitable that our hopes will be dashed on occasions when it appears not all our residents are law abiding.


1. There's some uncertainty regarding where the arrests were made. There are two Police reports one refers to Raids in a variety of locations and the second about the story above. But this last report seems to be inaccurate about the location of the arrests. At a guess the two teenagers are from Formby but arrested in Birkdale.
