Sunday, 2 May 2010


Yesterday’s Daily Post revealed that from Sunday 9th May 2010 groups of two or more troublesome people on Rhyl seafront can be dispersed by police; this follows reports of nuisance caused by gangs of drunks. The penalties for not complying with a dispersal order could be stiff.

A couple of days ago the same newspaper said that local criminal Johnny Gizzi (John Damon Gizzi) had been arrested by police near Burnley, Lancs, for conspiring to sell Class A controlled drugs. Just over a year ago he was released from being imprisoned for other offences; maybe he is not the reformed character for whom we had hoped.

Rhyl Life supports the clamping down on antisocial behaviour caused by alcohol and illegal drugs. If this had been done years ago Rhyl might never have gained such a bad reputation.
