Detectives investigating the murder of James Taylor in Liverpool on Thursday 7th February have today, Wednesday 6th March, issued CCTV images of a private hire taxi they are looking to trace.

The dark coloured vehicle, possibly a Hyundai I40, was seen in the area of Addison Street and Midghall Street at around 8pm on the night 34 year-old Mr Taylor was fatally shot in Holy Cross Close in Liverpool city centre.

Detective Chief Inspector Ian Warlow said: “Enquiries into Mr Taylor’s death remain ongoing. I would appeal for the driver of that taxi to come forward and speak to us as we believe they may have information which is vital to our investigation.

“I would also continue to appeal for anyone who was in the area of Holy Cross Close and Addison Street on the evening of Thursday 7th February, and who hasn’t already come forward to contact us as a matter of urgency. That includes anyone who may have dash-cam or CCTV footage or anyone who saw the car described above in the area on that evening.”

Anyone who has information is asked to DM @MerPolCC, call 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference 19100038615.
