A man and woman police were keen to trace after a suspected abduction alert have been located safe and well in south Liverpool by officers.

Earlier, police said they were concerned for the safety of the woman after she was seen apparently being pushed into a silver BMW this morning, which then drove off at high speed.

She was said by witnesses to be in a state of distress.

Further inquiries are being made with both parties to establish what happened this morning.

Witnesses to the incident in Beaufort Road are still encouraged to come forward if they saw anything that could help police inquiries.
