Police are appealing to anyone involved in a collision which resulted in the deaths of Conner Stevens, 24, and Luke Peaurt-Moran, 18, to do the 'right thing' and come forward.

Conner Stevens, 24, and Luke Peaurt-Moran, 18, died after an Audi S1 collided with a wall, a telegraph pole and then a second wall on Moss Lane, Burscough, at around 4am on November 20.

The driver, Conner Stevens, 24 died at the scene. The front seat passenger, Luke Peaurt-Moran, 18, also from Sefton, was taken to Aintree Hospital but died soon after.

Lancashire Police say the Audi, along with a red Fiat 500 Abarth, were stolen during a burglary prior to the collision at an address in the Towngate area of Eccleston.

The Fiat Abarth was later found in Crosby, but police today have appealed directly to the occupants to do "the right thing" and come forward.
