The emergency services were called to Southport Pier forecourt shortly after 10.30am this morning after a  member of the public reported a woman acting erratically.

When officers arrived they found the woman was under the influence of alcohol and she was claiming she was going to take her own life.

A witness at the scene said: “The lady was clearly suffering the consequences from a very heavy New Years eve, the staff from Silcocks did a great job in calming her down and took her inside”.

The woman was later taken away in the ambulance.
