Police called to boozy boys and baby
A member of the public called Merseyside police after witnessing two drunk men with a small child in a Southport town centre car park at around 10am this morning, Wednesday 15 June 2016.
The witness, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “I really couldn’t believe what I was seeing, I asked the two men if they were okay but they didn’t speak English!”
“I called 101 and was told that someone would investigate. Thirty minutes later and two more cans each the men left – with no sign of the police”
“I just hope that the young child is okay”
