New Police Inspector For Maghull Neighbourhood

I recently received an e-mail from Maghull Neighbourhood Police introducing their new top man. Regular readers of this blog will sadly not be surprised by my response.


I am Inspector Phil Hatton, newly arrived at Maghull Police Station and currently taking over from Mr Booth.

You have all been identified to me as key individuals within the
Maghull/Lydiate/Aintree neighbourhood.

I look forward to working with you all, with the aim of keeping the neighbourhood as free from crime & disorder ( and the fear of crime & disorder) as we possibly can.

I am hoping to meet as many of you as I can in the coming weeks. I am currently familiarising myself with the various aspects of my new role and finalising outstanding matters from my previous one.

Kind regards,

Phil Hatton
Maghull Police Station.

My response and how I wish I had not needed to send it! What a way to have to welcome our new Police Inspector

Thanks for getting in touch Phil,

Nice to hear from you and I hope we meet soon.

I do have a major concern because of the 3 gun discharges in Maghull over the past year and I will be raising my concerns at the Sefton East Parishes Area Committee tonight to follow up my raising gun crime concerns at the last Full Council meeting of Sefton Council.

Having represented Maghull on the Council since 1985 and lived here since 1968 these gun crimes are a big concern.

Best wishes

Cllr. Tony Robertson
