A large police presence has been conducting investigations at Compton Road this morning.
Eyewitnesses told OTS News that police vans arrived at 8am today.
A steady stream of officers and investigators has continued to arrive throughout the day to an alleyway that accomodates Phoenix Tyres.
While the majority of the police presence has now dispersed, several officers remain at the site conducting investigations.
The area remains locked to customers, who are being turned away from the business. Senior investigators have this afternoon begun door to door enquiries.
The nature of the investigation is currently unknown. OTS News has contacted Merseyside Police for comment.
