John Murray, from Liverpool, drove to the King Power stadium to offer up his tickets for Leicester's last home game this weekend.

John said it's "a once in a lifetime opportunity" for lucky Leicester supporter Pele Orton and his young son Orlando.

CCTV appeal after 'frightening' city centre sex attack

Merseyside Police has released CCTV footage following an attempted sexual assault in Liverpool City centre.

It happened around 4.30am on Sunday, 27 March, when the female victim became separated from friends in the area of Tithebarn Street, near to the junction with Vernon Street.

A man approached the victim and made an offer to help her find a taxi rank.

After walking for a short time, the man dragged the victim into a shop doorway and attempted to assault her.

She was able to escape on foot.

The man is described as Asian, in his early 20s, of medium height and wearing a blue jacket and jeans.

"This was a frightening incident for the victim, who was led to believe she was being helped by a stranger before the incident took place, and we are keen to speak to anyone who recognises the man from this footage to contact police.

“We can see from the CCTV that cars were in the area, including a private hire taxi which appears to stop close to the time and place of the offence. Any information provided, however small, could prove vital to our investigation.”

– Detective Inspector Colin Rennison, Merseyside Police
  • Anyone with information is urged to contact Merseyside Police on 0151 777 4808, or call 101. Information can also be passed to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
