Police investigating the death of a man in Liverpool are looking for "a number of men" seen running from a house towards a silver car parked outside.

David Corridan was found by officers at a property on New Hall Lane, Norris Green, at about 16:00 GMT on Monday. He had been stabbed and died at the scene.

Police said a BMW, believed to have been driven towards Townsend Avenue, was later found partially burnt out.

They also found a stolen Ford Fiesta which may be linked to the incident.

Det Ch Insp Neil Bickley said the BMW series 1 car was found on Langtry Close in Kirkdale.

He said: "The vehicle was displaying false license plates, YB57 ULS, and the car itself had been reported stolen on Thursday, 23 February. Enquiries are ongoing to establish if this is the same car as the one seen near to the scene.

"A short time later on Rumney Road a black Ford Fiesta MT09 BGV was recovered by the police, this was also a stolen car. Police are exploring the possibility that both cars were together during the evening.

"Both cars are in the process of being forensically examined to see if they are linked to the incident. I would encourage anyone who may have seen either of these cars prior to or following the incident to contact the team as a matter of urgency."
