Merseyside police Wrote:Merseyside Police can confirm that it has launched a murder investigation following the death of an on duty police officer in the early hours of this morning (Monday, 5 October 2015). 

The neighbourhood patrol officer had been deployed to assist following a burglary at an estate agents premises on Woodchurch Road, Birkenhead, just after 1am this morning. 

During the burglary the offenders stole a red Mitsubishi pick-up vehicle, which was spotted by a police patrol at 1.28am. 

The stolen vehicle was being driven at speed and when it was spotted by a police patrol car a pursuit was undertaken in a bid to apprehend the offenders. 

A pursuit was undertaken and the vehicle was driving along Wallasey Dock North Road, Wallasey, at about 2.08am. The Mitsubishi mounted the central reservation where two neighbourhood officers were standing after deploying a stop stick in a bid to stop the car. 

The Mitsubishi struck one of the officers and was then driven off at speed. 

Colleagues carried out CPR on the injured officer at the scene of the incident and he was taken to Arrowe Park Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short while later.
