Police appeal for footage to solve murder of Skelmersdale dad

Lancashire police are appealing to anyone with footage that may help their investigation into the murder of Lenny Scott (pictured).

Dad-of-three Lenny (33) from Prescot, was shot outside a gym in Peel Road in Skelmersdale on Thursday, February 8.

Despite the best efforts of emergency services, he died in hospital.

Officers have released a map showing an area of Skelmersdale and are specifically asking if anyone has CCTV, doorbell or dashcam footage from the pictured area between 5.30pm and 8pm on Thursday, February 8.

From ongoing enquiries, police know that the gunman left the murder scene outside the gym on Peel Road on an e-bike and headed towards Digmoor in Skelmersdale and then to Upholland.

So far, four people, all from Liverpool have been arrested but released on conditional bail pending further enquiries.

A large investigation team is assigned to the case, and members are are carrying out enquiries throughout the North-West to identify all those involved in Lenny’s murder and bring them to justice.

The team is getting close to gathering a full picture of what happened after sifting through hundreds of hours of CCTV footage.

Detective superintendent Gareth Willis said: “This is a fast-moving investigation and while we have now arrested four men our dedicated investigation team continue to work tirelessly to identify all those responsible for this abhorrent assassination.

“We know that there are people out there who know why this much-loved father-of-three was killed and who was involved. I am appealing directly to them to do the right thing by Lenny’s family and come forward.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank all those people who have come forward with information and footage so far and appeal to anyone who has still not been in contact with us to do so as soon as possible. You might have the key piece of information which takes a cold-blooded killer off the streets.”

Information can be given by calling police on 101 quoting log 1155 of February 9. Footage can be submitted here: Public Portal (mipp.police.uk)

You can also contact independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
