West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has pledged her support to the “Rural Crime Reporting Line”, a new service for farmers and the public to give information anonymously about rural crime. 

Launched by the National Farmers’ Union, in partnership with the charity Crimestoppers, farmers, rural businesses and the public can ring 0800 783 0137 or visit www.ruralcrimereportingline.uk to anonymously give information about crime relating to:

  • large-scale, industrial fly-tipping
  • hare coursing
  • machinery theft; or
  • livestock theft

Rural crime is a serious issue for farmers, rural businesses and those who live in the countryside, and it can have significant impacts on a farm or another rural business.

West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“Rural crime can have devastating impacts and I recognise that is a very important issue for many of my West Lancashire constituents. I fully support this new initiative by the NFU and commend them for their ongoing work to tackling these serious issues.

"I am committed to working with the NFU in our efforts to tackle rural crime and begin to rid this blight on our countryside.”

NFU Deputy President Guy Smith said:
“The NFU has teamed up with the charity Crimestoppers to provide a service for farmers and the public to give information anonymously about these crimes. With relevant information being passed to the police, this service could help to provide key leads in the pursuit of these criminals.

“I want to encourage anyone who has experienced, witnessed or has any information about these rural crimes to come forward and call the line - your information could be extremely valuable."

To give information on large-scale, industrial fly-tipping, hare coursing, machinery theft or livestock theft, call the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 783 0137 or go to www.ruralcrimereportingline.uk.

West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has taken up the issue over the ‘Parbold Pong’ with the water regulator, Ofwat.

For 20 years, residents of Parbold and Appley Bridge complain they have had to endure foul smelling odour from the nearby Wigan Wastewater Treatment Works.

MP Rosie has previously met with Parish Councillors including Parbold’s Chair, residents and United Utilities to try get a permanent solution to the ongoing situation.

However, despite repeated assurances and United Utilities undertaking work on the site, after short periods of respite the smells reappear. 

United Utilities have failed to keep their promises to find a permanent solution to eradicate the smell from the village. 

West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“Residents are angry and I completely understand why, this situation where they can’t enjoy living in their own houses, using their gardens and accessing local amenities without being subjected to this foul odour is totally unacceptable. It cannot go on!

“The Parish Council have done all they can and followed the formal channels meeting with and negotiating with United Utilities, but they feel that have just been abandoned by all the agencies in their quest for fresh, clean air.

“Both the Environment Agency and West Lancashire Borough Council either can’t or won’t take any serious enforcement action against the operators United Utilities, leaving local residents of Parbold and Appley Bridge to suffer.

“I have raised this issue with the Chief Executive of Ofwat, who regulate United Utilities, calling on them to use their influence to force UU to take urgent permanent remedial action.”
