During Roman times the area was part of the Brigantes tribal area in the military zone of Roman Britain. In the centuries after the Roman withdrawal in AD the northern parts of the county probably formed part of the Brythonic kingdom of Rheged , a successor entity to the Brigantes tribe.
During the mid-8th century, the area was incorporated into the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Northumbria , which became a part of England in the 10th century. Modern history[ edit ] The historic county palatine boundaries in red and the ceremonial county in green Lancashire is smaller than its historical extent following a major reform of local government.

Roman coins have been found at Halsall Moss and Crossens,  although the Romans never settled southwest Lancashire. The first real evidence of an early settlement here is in the Domesday Book, in which the area is called Otergimele.
The name is derived from Oddrgrimir meaning the son of Grimm and is linked to the Old Norse word melr meaning sandbank. The Domesday Book states that there were 50 huts in Otergimele, housing a population of The population was scattered thinly across the region and it was at the northeast end of Otergimele present day Crossens , where blown sand gave way to alluvial deposits from the River Ribble estuary, that a small concentration of people occurred.
The alluvium provided fertile agricultural land and the river itself stocks of fish. It was here, it seems, that a primitive church was built, which gave the emerging village its name of Churchtown, the parish being North Meols pronounced “meals”, not “mells”. A church called St Cuthbert’s is still at the centre of Churchtown. With a booming fishing industry, the area grew slowly and hamlets became part of the parish of North Meols.
Parts of the parish were almost completely surrounded by water until when Thomas Fleetwood of Bank Hall cut a channel to drain Martin Mere to the sea.

Unsurprisingly, though, the Blues’ approach has come into focus, reports the Liverpool Echo.
Crimestoppers has launched a campaign to counter the growing influence of city gangs ruthlessly moving into areas like Cumbria and North Wales in the hunt for new markets. As well as bringing drug misery and violence to new areas, the charity fears these illicit networks are often built on the exploitation of vulnerable children.
Big city crime gangs are increasingly moving beyond their home turf as they look to expand their empires. Often better armed, and with more drugs at their disposal, they focus on the towns of the North West where local gangs – and local police forces – are less equipped to deal with them. They flood those streets with drugs, undermining local rivals with cut-price deals or higher purity substances – and backing up their expansion with shocking violence.
