This story is based on a press release which in the interests of transparency can be read in full on the British Transport Police website.

British Transport Police officers are appealing for information about an incident at Hamilton Square Train Station, Birkenhead, Wirral that happened on Wednesday 10th January 2018 at 6.13 pm.

A British Transport Police Police Community Support Officer was on patrol at the train station, when a man came through the ticket barriers to use the toilet.

The man then attempted to leave the train station without a ticket. The Police Community Support Officer tried to stop him and ended up with a dislocated finger. The man was last seen in the direction of Bridge Street.

British Transport Police officers would like to speak to the man in the CCTV image above as he may have information that could help them with their investigation. Anyone with any information should contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 citing reference 374 of 10/01/18.

Edited JB 30.1.2018 20:09 to add more detail about what meeting is about.

When looking at the calendar of public meetings at Wirral Council for February 2018, I noticed a special meeting of the Adult Care and Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee had been scheduled to start at 6.00 pm on Tuesday 13th February 2018 in Committee Room 1, Wallasey Town Hall, Brighton Street, Seacombe, CH44 8ED.

For those that have been following local politics around the NHS, or who read this blog regularly, you’ll be already aware of the controversy surrounding the STP plans (or to spell out the acronym Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships).

I am told that the special meeting on the 13th February 2018 (which will be held in public) will be discussing this topic as well as the NHS Five Year Forward View. As the agenda and reports are scheduled to be published on the 5th February 2018, I can’t provide more detail than that.

However there is a certain strength of feeling both on the Wirral and over in Liverpool about changes happening and proposed changes to the NHS.

It is a political topic that arouses strong feelings in people, especially those that rely heavily on NHS services.

The public meeting will be starting at 6.00 pm on Tuesday 13th February 2018 in Committee Room 1, Wallasey Town Hall, Brighton Street, Seacombe, CH44 8ED and next month the agenda and reports will be published on Wirral Council’s website at this address.

Wirral Council’s Adult Care and Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee will also be meeting in Committee Room 1 in public tonight at a meeting starting at 6.00 pm.
