Police have arrested a man after a pension was seriously injured after a crash in Huyton last night. Officers discovered the 71 year old man on Manor Farm Road at about 6pm following reports of a motorbike collision. He has been taken to hospital where his condition is described as serious.
A short time later officers arrested a 24-year-old man on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and failing to stop. The area has been cordoned off whilst collision investigators carry out forensic examinations.
A man's in a critical condition after he was discovered with head injuries on the M62. Police were called to the slip road at J5 Huyton, Liverpool bound at around 2:35am and found the 22 year old.
The injured man is believed to have been a passenger in a black Hackney cab when the incident occurred. The taxi driver is assisting officers with their enquiries. No-one has been arrested.
A full investigation into the incident is underway. The Liverpool-bound slip road remains cordoned off at this time whilst forensic examinations are carried out. The main carriageway of the M62 is unaffected.
Three men have been arrested after firearms, ammunition and what is believed to be cocaine and heroin were seized at a house in Huyton in Merseyside.
Merseyside police say there were three handguns among the items recovered.
The men aged 27, 25 and 21 are being questioned.
"These guns have been taken off our streets thanks to the quick thinking and excellent police work shown by the local officers in Huyton.
"People who use guns, or store them for others, bring fear and misery to our communities and we will be relentless in our efforts to take firearms off the streets of Merseyside and put those responsible behind bars.
"I want to reassure people that we will continue to take positive and robust action on all forms of serious and organised crime, and we will act on all the information that we receive."
