    Have you seen wanted man Patrick Ward, 32?



    He is being sought by police after being convicted in his absence of conspiracy to commit burglary and conspiracy to commit criminal damage after a trial Preston Crown Court last week.

    The offences relate to Patrick’s involvement in over £313k of damage caused and stolen items at the historic Thwaites Brewery site in Blackburn over the spring bank holiday weekend, when a group of travellers set up camp on the grounds.

    Despite requests to move, they remained on the site.

    On Sunday 27 May, after staff had been to collect items of value, Patrick, along with two other men and a 17 year old boy, as well as other accomplices not yet convicted, looted office buildings stealing televisions, computer equipment, high value alcohol and electrical copper wiring from throughout the entire site. The damage not only cost the company hundreds of thousands of pounds, it also meant they had to relocate to some new premises sooner than planned.

    The group were moved on by police escort on Bank Holiday Monday (28 May).

    DS Dave Bowler from Blackburn Police said: “Ward knew he was due to stand trial but did not turn up to court. He is due to be sentenced in January.
    “If you have seen him or know where he is, please make contact with us. My advice to Patrick if he sees this appeal is to attend a police station before he makes matters worse for himself.”

    Patrick Ward is described as white, around 6ft 3ins tall, of large build with short wavy brown hair and green eyes. He speaks with an Irish accent and has a tribal tattoo on his left arm and the name ‘Carol’, along with a shamrock, tattooed on his right arm.

    Ward is a member of the travelling community and has connections across the country as well as the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, where he currently may be.

    I wouldn't hold my breath over the outcome.


    The gang of about 100 travellers, laden with stolen goods, was escorted from the Thwaites site by the few police not engaged in trawling Twitter for 'offensive' tweets. Only four were later arrested, and that was only as a result of a public outcry.

    It says so in the article and police statement.

    One hope's nobody is blaming
    the police here . If you are , then you
    must get out more and see what life
    is in reality.

    It begs the question, why would a TRAVELLER, accused of several serious crimes, be given bail. Surely the clue is in the word TRAVELLER, i.e. someone who TRAVELS.

    So we have mob rule now do we? Yes it was the police's fault. The travellers entered the premises past them. The police though didn't want to deprive the travellers of their Human Rights.

    Clive764 , 6 policemen and 100
    travellers .
    What tablets you taking?
    It's not possible just to produce 200
    police suddenly and whose going to
    pay for it and the aftermath.
    This has been going on for years and
    you ain't going to change it anytime
    soon.

    So you just give up? ... as seems to be happening with so very many incidents of real crime (as opposed to so called "hate crime" and other forms of name calling which the plods are using so many resources to "police"). Perhaps Lancs Constabulary needs to buy those water cannon that the dipstick Labour mayor of London recently sold at a bargain rate.

    The water cannon were sold off because their use is illegal in the UK, which clearly the mayor of London at the time of purchase was too damn stupid to know, Boris wasted more money on ego and vanity than just about anyone else anywhere.
