Dispersal zone was success in Formby

by Danielle Thompson (September 2021)

A SUCCESSFUL dispersal zone was implimented at the weekend in a bid to curb anti-social behaviour in the area.

The zone ran from 4pm on Friday, September 24 until 3.59pm on Sunday, September 26 when officers were in the area to provide a visible presence and deal with any incidents – but according to police chiefs on Monday, the weekend-long initiative had passed with ‘no major incidents or arrests.’

It covered Raven Meols Lane, Ward Ave, Kirklake Road, Woodlands Road, Harrington Road, Victoria Road, Gores Lane, Halsall Lane, Three Tuns Lane and Liverpool Road.

The Champion revealed in its page one story on September 15, ‘Street gangs making life a misery for us’ that groups of up to 40 youths had been roaming areas of the village, damaging property, drug dealing and making residents ‘live in fear.’
