Police have reported that razor blades/knife blades have been attached to the side of the childrens’ slide at the Winifred Lane Play Area in Aughton today. We ask for everyone to be vigilant and to check equipment before your children use it. Please help the Ormskirk and Burscough Police if you have any information about the culprits. Do not let these morons damage our children. Call 101 if you have information, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
A comment has been made “Sleepy Aughton now under attack, gobsmackingly surreal, what next , why, why ? why?”. Well, it’s happening everywhere else, and it will keep on happening because there are no Police to speak of. At a recent Aughton Parish Council meeting we watched drug dealing taking place on the car park and the Police Chief Inspector went outside to deal with it!
Update. There are now over 1,100 comments on the Ormskirk and Burscough Police Facebook. Includes “The problem here is they won’t even be bothered in the slightest if they did get caught because they know the punishment would be minimal because our justice system is an absolute joke. If they are properly punished people for things like this for example chop their hands off. Then I wonder how many people would try this sort of behaviour then? It would make you think twice before attempting to intentionally injure babies and small children that’s for sure”.
