UPDATE: Police appeal following fatal collision in Scarisbrick

POLICE are appealing for information following a fatal collision in Scarisbrick yesterday evening.

The incident happened at around 6pm on Tuesday 6 January on the A570 Southport Road near to The Villa café when a Peugeot Horizon and a Toyota Carina were involved in a head on collision.

Andrew Birch (46) died in the collision and two people sustained serious injuries. Their families are being supported by specially trained officers.

It is believed that a BMW saloon car was also involved but failed to stop and drove towards the direction of Southport.

PS John Jennings Wharton of the Road Policing Unit said: “I would urge anyone with any information about the collision to contact us. Someone out there knows who was driving the BMW and I plead to their conscience for them to come forward and report what they know to us as soon as possible.”

Alternatively, they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
