Does it show the true side of Blackpool?

The best comments will feature in an in-paper reader’s review of the show.

The latest episode of the series focused on children who “are taking up more and more of the emergency services’ time, whether it’s prank calls, bad behaviour or poor parenting”.

Blackpool beat bobbie PC Chris Hardy responds to a call from a terrified family who’ve had a brick thrown through their window and a gang of lads outside their house. The incident appears to have started when one boy called another ‘fat’ and the police take a 13-year-old into custody.

When a resident finds a three-year-old boy walking barefoot and alone down a back street, PC Mark Glass is dispatched to question the boy, find out where he lives and where his parents are.

PC Mike Ellis is sent to track down 12-year-old twin girls who’ve disappeared on the Promenade after their father went drinking.

And a six-month-old baby is injured when his mother leaves him in the care of two teenagers while she goes out on the town.

Meanwhile police and ambulance are sent to help Andrea, a regular caller to 999 who has a drink problem and is looked after by her teenage daughter, who also acts as a parent to her younger brother.

Andrea’s daughter - a true inspiration - ends the programme bagging a clutch of A Levels which will enable her to go to university.

And police are called out after tourists spot a woman performing sexual acts on teenage boys under the pier on the beach, just yards from families on holiday.

It was all pretty hard hitting stuff, but we want to know what you think.
