Appeal to find witness after ‘grenade’ devices found

Police are appealing to a potential witness who may be able to help their investigation, following the find of two grenade-type devices in Fulwood.

Officers would like to speak to the man in the CCTV footage (pictured) but make it clear that he being treated solely as a witness and is not in any trouble.

Police attended a property in Watling Street Road at 12.25pm on Tuesday, June 18 to a report that the devices had been found close to an address.

The Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team was called, a cordon established, and a number of properties were evacuated.

A successful controlled explosion of one of the devices was carried out by the EOD at the scene, with the other device removed to a second location with a further controlled explosion taking place there.

One of the items was found to be a viable explosive device, the other was not a viable explosive device.

The public have been asked to check any dashcam, CCTV and mobile phone footage to see if they captured anything in the conservation area around Watling Street Road between midnight and 12.30am on June 18.

The witness (pictured) could help police with their investigation – if you are that person or you know him, you should contact officers.

Police understand this was an isolated incident and do not believe it is linked to any other investigations.

A police spokesman said: “We want to reiterate that the man in the below image is being treated as a witness, and we do not believe he has any involvement in the incident, however, it is really important that we speak to him.

“If you saw anything unusual or have information that could assist our investigation, please call 101 quoting log 0556 of 18th June 2024.”
