Photographs by

MERSEYSIDE Police has arrested a man on suspicion of possession of a firearm and assault following an incident in Bootle, on Wednesday, 19 April 2017. We have been informed that Merseyside Police Officers were called to Miranda Road, Bootle, shortly before 11am, following a report that a man had assaulted a woman. A short time later the same man was reported to be carrying what appeared to be a firearm at the junction of Bedford Road and Miranda Road. The man then made off in a silver coloured car, in the direction of Stanley Road.  Specialist Police Officers were deployed and a search of the area took place. Later a 45 year old male, from Formby, was arrested, in Formby, on suspicion of possession of a firearm. During the arrest a section of road, between the Railway Pub and of Formby Street, between and Raven Meols Lane was closed off.  Anyone who has any information about firearms in their community is asked to contact officers on the Matrix Serious and Organised Crime gun crime hotline on:- 0800 230 0600 or Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
