    QLOCAL owner and editor Steve Ashcroft said "This is not the first time posts have been censored. A press release from Merseyside Police was taken down for a post that goes against our Community Standards on cybersecurity - presumably because it mentioned a person had sadly died".

    At least the post at the popular Southportnews group with over 20k members caused some amusement with comments like:

    I agree very graphic or violent... What a joke... The world's gone mad
    I won't sleep tonight after seeing this!!
    The poor tree died folks give it sum sympathy plz
    I'm traumatised seeing this
    Hope its saplings dont see this
    Im not going to get this image out of my head now

    Ha!Ha! The protection team have become so completely ridiculous now, that their input has all become hilarious. The result is the opposite of what it was intended to achieve. Well done to the posters above.
