Merseyside Police can confirm officers have been in attendance on Norwood Road, Southport, today, Friday 18th March. A member of the public contacted police after they were concerned by something they saw lying in the road.

Alongside members of the medical profession, officers have examined a photograph taken by this member of the public, which they now believe to be a doll. However, officers attended and have made a thorough examination of the scene, spoken to numerous witnesses and conducted house to house enquiries.

At this time they have found nothing but enquiries are ongoing in the local area.
