    A local man Wayne Taylor who owns Riverview Motorcycle Training has had a run in with one of Southports over zealous Parking Attendants who now also act as Litter Wardens.

    Wayne was on the Southport Theatre car park when he was accosted by the Council jobsworth.

    Wayne said on his Facebook page...

    Please tell me this guy isnít on Sefton councils payroll!! This is what your paying for guys!
    Anybody else know any jobsworths??
    Oh and before you ask, yes the police turned up and yes it was found it was a complete waste of police time.

    What was the alleged offence?

    What a total muppet!
    We can expect more of this as these parking & littering enforcement officers have very little to do now given hardly anyone comes to Southport currently due to the ridiculous parking charges and 'facist' enforcement officers....
    Thankfully the local constabulary took a common sense approach as always.

    Sad really! Now we live in fear of accidentally dropping something.

    A new jacket I have seems to like projecting things out of the pockets when getting in or out of the car, wouldn't dare wear it in Southport.

    The parking wardens and now these must put a lot of people off coming to Southport.

    Would rather see resources put into tackling anti social behaviour.

    Please, you are not using my council tax to clean up
    someone else's ****.
    Who gives you the ability to call the person in question a
    a jobsworth after some of the **** you write on here.
    He is working , not sponging. The fines should be 3 times
    greater than what they are.
    Traffic wardens , litter police should all be self financing .
    You call this person , do you shout after the BINMAN after he leaves half nextdoors bin on the roads.

    "BINMAN", do you mean a "Waste Management and Disposal Technician"

    No it's because that is what is described in the video.
    Are you trying to call me "uneducated" because I can't quite understand that random jumble of words that you've written?

    Dropping litter. He wasn't to know it was a full packet of sigs. Early in the video the guy said he was happy to walk away if he stopped being abused. If he kept his mouth shut, he'd have walked away and that would have been the end of it.

    Guy was doing his job.
    Reaction should have been, "Sorry I didn't realise I'd dropped them, Sorry about that. Thanks for coming over and saving me a tenner"

    His reaction would have been " No problem, Have a nice day"

    End of story.


    Why do people think they can be abusive and not get a reaction. His being sticking to the rule of the law. Personally think he was very professional considering the verbal abuse he was getting.


    Also well done for him asking for the police to attend, As if they haven't anything better to do.

    Don't recall seeing 18 cigarettes anywhere , unless I
    missed it.
    It still doesn't warrant refering to the gentleman as a
    jobsworth.

    TBH cigs or no cigs isn't really the issue here. It was Wayne Taylor's attitude that made the situation escalate. The litter issue would have gone away if he'd picked them up and said sorry I'd dropped them accidently there are still 18 fags left in the packet.

    The warden said as much in the fist part of the video. He needs a pay rise for keeping his cool.

    You don't consider littering as anti social behaviour then?

  16. ausard2 says:31/01/2018 10:41 AM
    The warden has total support from me and like it's been said
    attitude of culprit was not good.
    I believe this now should be a case of public put up
    and shut .
    This guy runs a motor cycle school , definitely give that place amiss.
    Funny how there just happened to be someone to video it.
