Three questioned after man is found collapsed

THREE people are being questioned by police after a man was found collapsed in Poulton last night.

Neighbours rushed to help the man, known locally as Ben, who was found lying close to the footbridge in Sherlock Lane at 7.50pm.

He had breathing difficulties and is said to be in a critical condition at Arrowe Park Hospital.

A neighbour who rushed to his aid, told the Globe: "He's well-known around here and when I saw him I thought he was dead.

"I don't really know him, but he frightened the life out of me."

More later.
