    The purpose is a to make local news available for non commercial use.

    It relies on News feeds from Councils, BBC, Police, Local Blogs, Local news.In order to add extra content and services our external links and displays are free.

    As the blog is to promote local news free and is non commercial non profit making network it would not be possible to pay Press Association Commercial licence fees for content because it is not set up to make a financial gain.

    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

  • Operation Brookdale

    Merseyside Police has arrested 57 people and seized 118 bikes as part of its latest crackdown on scrambler and quad bikes.

    Operation Brookdale was officially launched on Tuesday, 1 July and involves officers from across Merseyside focusing on areas where communities are suffering from the illegal and anti-social use of scrambler and quad bikes.

    Particular attention is being paid to roads, parkland and other open areas which people have told officers are hot-spots for the problem.

    So far in the operation, a total of 59 warnings have been issued following riders using bikes in a careless or anti-social manner. 

    Of the 118 bikes that have been seized so far, 57 are because they are believed to have been stolen and the remaining have been seized in connection with insurance and/or licence offences or because they have been used in an anti-social manner.

    Chief Inspector - John Hogan said: "Merseyside Police will use every power it has available to target irresponsible drivers and to take illegal machines off the streets.

    "Our communities consistently tell us that this problem is something they are really worried about and the results of the operation so far are tangible proof that we are listening and we are determined to make the roads of Merseyside a safer place for all.

    "I would also like to take this opportunity to reassure people that we will act upon all the information that we receive.  The operation has already prompted lots of people to get in touch to tell us about hotspots for illegal scrambler bikes in their area and I would urge people to carry on doing that.

    "People can call 101, or, if they prefer, Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.  All this information will be fed into the operation and will allow us to continue to build on the successes we have had to date and stop the illegal and anti-social use of scrambler and quad bikes blighting the lives of local people."
