ON behalf of the Haydock and Blackbrook councillors, it came as a shock to hear about the shooting on School Street.

The use of firearms on our streets is deeply worrying.

Haydock is a safe place to live and work the vast majority of the time.

Any residents or bypassers who can assist police should contact them urgently.

Even seemingly innocuous information may assist.

Cllr Martin Bond, Haydock
