Due to a serious police incident, a number of roads will be closed in the St Helens town centre area today, Monday 24 April.

The roads concerned are a combination of main arterial routes around the town and residential roads. It is likely that they will remain closed until well in to the daytime of Monday 24 April.

The roads closed are as follows:
· Access on to Bridge Street (one-way section) from Ormskirk Street.
· Chalon Way closed in both directions between King Street/Westfield Street and Linkway West (B&Q roundabout).
· Liverpool Road fully closed, no access from Westfield Street, Liverpool Street or Linkway West.
· Canal Street closed in both directions between Linkway West and Bold Street (the Phoenix Public House).
· Bold Street fully closed between Glover Street and Canal Street.

The potential for commuter disruption is very high, and road users should be advised to make every effort to avoid the area, to prevent pressure on the surrounding roads.

Further updates will be provided in regards to road closures.
