Police appeal for witnesses after man's body found in Woolton

Police are questioning two men after a man's body was found in Woolton. The man in his 50s was discovered at the junction of Woolton Street and Allerton Road. He's not yet been formally identified.

"I am appealing for anyone who was in Woolton village last night or the early hours of this morning to come forward. I am particularly keen to speak with anyone who was in the Coffee House pub at closing time, around midnight, to come forward. It’s possible you may have seen something that could help us to piece together the events prior to the man’s death.”

– Detective Inspector Colin Rennison, Merseyside Police
