Investigators launch fresh appeal following the death of Widnes Vikings star Liam Walsh

Police have released details of potential witnesses they are keen to get a hold of following the investigation into the death of former Widnes Vikings rugby player Liam Walsh.

Walsh, 23, died after being hit by a red Vauxhall Corsa while he was travelling on foot at the A5080 Cronton Road near the junction with College Fields, with the incident being reported at 11.52pm on Saturday, September 18.

Liam suffered serious injuries and was taken to Whiston Hospital but died a short time later.

Investigators are said to want to hear from the occupants of vehicles filmed on CCTV in the area around the time of the incident.

The first was a panel van shaped vehicle, possibly a taxi, which passed the Corsa shortly before the collision occurred.

Officers also want to hear from the occupants of a dark saloon car and a London style cab, which were travelling towards Widnes on Cronton Road a short time before the collision.
