June Crimes in Rainhill Village

Lynn Carberry, Merseyside Community Laision Officer, reports that through dedicated actions in St Helens, there has been a 50% reduction in burglaries since November 2005.

Rainhill, however, still appears to be a popular target and burglaries did occur in Elderswood, Holt Lane and St Annes Place.

Car theft is also a real problem and incidents occurred in the following places:
Longton Lane, Stoney Lane, Rainhill Road, Dunbeath Avenue, Warrington Road, Blundells Lane, Newby Avenue, Ratcliffe Place and Ansdell Villas Road.

Joe, Mike and myself again urge village residents to be vigilant. It really does only take a few seconds for a sneak thief to act.

  • On almost every crime report I notice Longton lane seems to be there, as a Longton resident i hardly ever see any police presence around here but if i go to more "respectable" areas such as the stoops and sneeze a police man/woman seems to pop up to see what all the comotion is! Is there a reason for this or am i just being paranoid?

  • Thanks for your contribution. I have recently been advised of further anti-social behavior last weekend (28th and 29th July) where a gang of approximately 15 youths caused damage to parked cars and front gardens. The police were called and did attend but the youths had gone before they arrived. Fortunately a local resident had CCTV footage of the incidents by his property and has given the evidence to the police to follow up. I have emailed the local inspector asking for updates to pass back to concerned residents. This area should be identified as a "hot spot" and then receive more coverage by the local bobbies and Rainhill Community Support Officers.
