Just got back in Kev from the morning inspection and yes, I don't know what for. Butts is littered with broken glass, dog muck bin ripped out, a large section of Briggs and Duxbury's fence brolen down, Larch Lap panels ripped off a private garden and a large wire-reinfoced window to the office smashed in, a big hole in it. God knows what the thrill is.


Madness. I'm sure we'll find out eventually, someone will know someone who...

Whatever it was there must have been a heck of a racket. Do you have a police station in Barlick these days? If so, is it in hearing distance of the incident?

Unofficial word on the street is a stabbing outside the Railway

Kev. Serious stuff. I noted the other day how shabby the pub looked and wondered if it was closed. Carpet shop front not affected by weather at the moment, they're putting the foundation in under the shelter of the temporary structure.

It is possible that the aforementioned damage down Butts may have rather more to do with the weather than vandalism, last night when we went to bed the old Fosters Arms roadside sign was still in place, this morning only the frame remains, there have been several very severe gusts of wind. What got my attention on the news was the large number of children of school age waiting to be got out of Tunisia, lets hope they do not blame the state if they get poor grades, it is my personal feeling that anyone going to a country that is volatile for a holiday is displaying a distinct lack of judgement, sic, if they run into trouble, it is their own fault and not someone elses'. Due to a part of a previous employment I have a list of countries that I could only visit if deemed safe by higher authorities, not a problem as I have no wish to go to any of them.
Oh. and by the way. "A Happy New Year" to you all.

Thanks to Gus for the pic. Looks as though the 2 incidents could be unrelated. There's been no official word yet...

Peter the wind doesn't blow paving slabs through wire-reinforced windows or rip dog litter bins out of the ground.. Definitely vandals.

Tiz, remote from police station and no cameras.

Sorry to hear and see that there has been an incident in Barlick......

I always find it interesting to take a closer look at photos like this (NOT being ghoulish by the way !)

The road is closed , but not to pedestrians.

It's raining.... (only one bare head)

The streetlight is on , and the shops are open (man with bags)...Pub is shut ....

Scene of crime officers in white cover-alls  are in the background (came in a newish van).....

Officer is removing (just a guess) blue and white Police Tape....

CCTV camera (top left) might have recorded the incident.....

Cash machine ? at Lloyds is still working... (was someone robbed ?)

......and the pub is for sale !

There is a feel about this picture , that things are getting back to normal ....

From the Lancashire Telegraph

A YOUNG MAN is fighting for his life after a brawl broke out between two groups in Barnoldswick in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Police have said the 21-year-old from Barnoldswick is in a serious condition in St James’s University Hospital in Leeds after he was punched and fell to the ground.

He received serious head injuries but it is not believed that anyone else was hurt in the incident, which happened between 12.30am and 1am on Saturday in Church Street.

Yesterday police arrested two men, a 20-year-old and a 24 year-old, both from the town on suspicion of assault.

Officer are currently investigating the incident and have carried out door-to-door inquiries and are looking at CCTV footage from the area.

They are also seeking appeals from witnesses who may have seen the incident.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Gray said: “This was a tragic set of circumstances where a young man has sustained a severe head injury which is possibly life threatening.

“We have a team working on this inquiry and we have interviewed a number of people over the weekend but I would appeal for any other witnesses who may have seen what happened to come forward and contact police.”

Police said they wanted to speak specifically to three women who may have seen the incident.

Mr Gray said: “They are believed to have been outside a taxi rank office next to Flava take away in Station Road.

“We would also like to speak to anyone who came out of the Conservative Club around 12.30am to 1am and may have seen the incident.”

Anyone with information should call 0845 125 3545

Catgate, I find your response above less than sympathetic and even less appropriate!

??? I am puzzled. Herb.

I know I am getting on in years, but I had not realised I was writing comments and not knowing I was doing it.

I had read this article and had thought about commenting on how well the police  manage to always create a big public spectacle, but I was not aware I had written anything down. Could this be telepathy????

Catgate, I was reffering to your reply to my post on the previous page on 12-01.  I think that they are entitled to make a public spectacle when one of them is killed in the line of duty, there are certainly many out there who make a public outcry when they do something THEY don't agree with.  I am not sure if how to take your post, are you anti police?

Peter I do apologise if I have upset you. I thought "aforementioned damage down Butts" included all the damage I mentioned. Silly me.

Wonderful snooker last night in the Masters at Wembley. The score line doesn't do it justice. It was much closer than the final result suggested. Two brilliant players and the game is developing so fast in China that the older players were commenting that half the top 16 could be from China in ten years. If we get play of this quality bring it on.
