Police are investigating after blood was found at a Metrolink station

At 8.30pm on Tuesday 28 January 2014, police were called following reports of blood being in a lift at Princess Parkway.

Following inquiries, a man was seen on CCTV holding bags with fluid dripping from it.

Crime Scene Investigators tested the fluid and confirmed it was blood. Inquiries are now on going to establish whether the blood is human or animal.

A scene remains at the Metrolink while officers continue with their investigation.

Detective Superintendent Emily Higham said: “Obviously there will be disruption to this morning’s Metrolink service at Princess Parkway but we need to carry out further investigation at the scene to establish whether anything suspicious has taken place.

“We are now looking to find the man who was holding the bag and speak to him.

“While we continue to work at the scene, trams will not be stopping at the station so I would advise people to make alternative arrangements for their morning travel.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
