We were contacted last night, Friday 11th January, following reports of an unconfirmed firearms discharge in Wimbourne Road in Huyton.

Reports were received of loud bangs being heard at just before 8pm. Officers attended at the scene and a search of the area and house-to-house enquiries have been carried out.

A further search of the area was carried out today (Saturday) but no evidence of a firearms discharge has been found. It is believed the loud noise was caused by fireworks.

Enquiries are continuing. Anyone with information is asked to DM @MerPolCC or call 101 quoting log 924 of 11th January
