A man and woman have been arrested in relation to the horrifying murder of Ashley Dale.

The young woman who died in a hail of bullets after gunmen burst into her home is the second member of her family to have died in a bungled gangland hit, it has emerged.

Ashley Dale, 28, was not the “intended target” when armed men attacked her in a Liverpool garden, shortly after midnight on Sunday, August 21, police say.

In a Merseyside Police press conference which aired soon after 11.30am on Thursday, Detective Chief Inspector Cath Cummings updated the public on investigations into three separate murder cases in Liverpool.

DCI Cummings issued a stern warning to the suspected killer of nine-ear-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel, saying "we will find you".
