Aughton Police Station Mystery Ceiling Damage

The Aughton Police Station is closed for repairs, and has been since early this month. No announcement was made, just a notice stuck on the door . I wondered if a volunteer knew how long it would take and who is paying the bill? I presumed Merseyrail would pay, but wondered if it might affect the lease with the Aughton Parish Council.

My contact didn’t have any other information about the closure, only that “volunteers were told about 2 weeks ago that it was closed due to a ceiling problem and they would be informed when it was to be reopened”.

A request to the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for details of the ceiling damage, repairs, and timescale for repairs, brought this reply “In order to look into your enquiry I will need to consult with a colleague at Lancashire Constabulary”.

No news is often not good news. Local policing is being lost. We should be told of any lack of local policing services, hopefully just temporary, but the silence is indicative of the mushroom method of communications.
