Southport street drinkers causing concern to residents

It is understood that drinkers, who frequent Southport town centre and other areas leave beer cans littered around.

A local resident, who has witnessed the street drinkers today told “These people need to be moved on. They hang around from 9am until 9pm shouting and swearing at people.”

“A local licensee told me that if he served drink outside his designated licensed area he would come to the notice of the police. Where are they now?”

“The resident described the drinkers as being ‘so drunk‘ however the convenience stores keeps serving them.”

Sefton Council would not comment on the matter as usual!
