Forensic search continues at Borough Road flats - but police tight-lipped on investigation
6:29pm Sunday 15th September 2013 in News
A POLICE forensic team remained stationed at a block of flats in St Helens today more than 24 hours since an investigation started at the address.
An entrance to the flats on Borough Road, St Helens remained sealed off this afternoon, although police have so far released no information about the nature of their investigation.
A police ‘scientific support’ vehicle was parked outside the flats – which are nearby the former Sacred Heart Social Club – and another police car was stationed on nearby Crispin Street.
Neighbours believe the investigation relates to an incident at the flats on Friday night, with one adding “police were everywhere on Saturday morning”.
Comments posted on social media on Saturday claimed there had been a fatality at the address - but those claims remain unconfirmed.
A Merseyside Police spokesman said there had not been a fatality when contacted by the Star on Saturday afternoon – and despite the ongoing police presence, which continued at 5pm today (Sunday) – officers have still not been forthcoming with any information.
