Shooting outside the Fox and Goose in Southport

SHOTS were fired on Cable Street, Southport, on Saturday, 13 January 2007. Merseyside Police are now appealing for information following the incident which took place outside the Fox and Goose pub in Southport, in which 2 men were injured. The incident took place around 11pm. Merseyside Police told us that:- "A man approached two members of door staff outside the Fox and Goose Public House on Cable Street, Southport. He was wearing a balaclava, and had what appeared to be a hand gun, which was fired towards the men. The offender then got into a silver Vauxhall Vectra that drove off from the scene. The car was later found abandoned close to the Royal Clifton Hotel, on Southport Promenade. Both victims were taken to hospital. A 31 year old man is suffering from chest injuries and a 20 year old suffering leg and hip injuries. The Vectra car was seized by police and is undergoing forensic tests. Also being looked is CCTV footage."

Detective Inspector Richy Carr said, “We will not tolerate gun crime on our streets. I urge anyone with information to come forward and help us find those responsible. The area would have been fairly busy on a Saturday night and I would urge any witnesses to the incident to come forward, particularly anyone who saw the silver Vector and its occupants around the area. I would also like to speak to anyone who saw the car being abandoned along the Promenade. Please call us on 0151 777 5 811 or call Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111."

Many at the site told us that "After phoning we noted a long wait before the ambulance arrived. "It must have been 15 to 20 minutes." one of the witnesses told us. Another person at the scene told us:- "It is shocking that when the ambulance arrived they could not get access to the road as it was full of police cars and vans! Also the time it took for the response by the emergency services was amazingly poor."

We will invite the emergency services to comment on this matter and will be featuring audio interviews with witnesses in next week’s issue, when facts are clearer.
