Children are paying the high price for the continued anti social behaviour of terrorizing teenagers in Southport.

KFC on Eastbank street, Southport will now install security measures including a high pitched frequency shrill alarm that only youngsters can hear – meaning it will deter and potentially harm little children who are visiting the fast food outlet.

Its all because of gangs of teens like to gather around KFC to cause trouble in the town. Its a brand new initiative the firm want to use after talks with merseyside police resulted in both organizations deciding enough is enough.

Similar alarms were attached to the pier near to the skatepark a number of years ago in a bid to stop anti social behaviour but it was thought that the technology at the time was so unreliable, it did nothing to help.
