[Edit: Merseyside Police have confirmed they have spoken to the witnesses. The article has been amended accordingly, to avoid any embarrassment to those pictured.]

Detectives investigating the murder of Adam Ellison in Prescot in November have issued CCTV images of two potential witnesses they would like to trace.


Adam was walking along a pedestrianised area in Market Place, Prescot, at 12.40am on Saturday 4 November with friends when he became involved in an argument with people on a motorbike.

During the incident he was stabbed in the neck with an unknown weapon. He was taken to hospital for surgery but sadly passed away that morning.

DCI Middleton said: “Any bit of information may prove to be vital to helping us get answers to what happened on that night and help Adam’s family.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police’s Major Crime Unit on 0151 777 8618 or the Crimestoppers line anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    Police have removed this from their website after speaking to these two people. You should do the same.

      Thanks. I haven’t received a follow-up to that effect from Merseyside Police, but I will ask them about it and act on their advice.

        Maybe you should check with Police BEFORE you post, if you had of done this you would know that they removed it long before you posted this.

        This is distressing for the couple, and your further post is distressing them further. You have removed it from facebook, yet arrogantly leave it here until you talk to Police who removed it on SATURDAY?

    I’m disgusted to be honest, at your misconceived political correctness, pretending to do the right thing, whilst doing the wrong thing. Delete it until you are sure, NOT before you are sure.

      All identifying information has been removed. The police sent Prescot Online the information for publication in the first place. On receiving your comments, I contacted Merseyside Police immediately and amended the article as soon as I was able to get to a PC. Many thanks.

      Well done Paul! People don’t realise the potential impact of things like this.
