British police have launched a murder investigation after a woman was shot dead in a pub near Liverpool on Christmas Eve.

Merseyside Police officers were called to the Lighthouse Inn pub in Wallasey Village around 23:50 GMT on Saturday.

Three men and a woman with gunshot wounds were taken to hospital, but the woman later died.

Detective Officer Dave McCaughrean said the shooting took place in a “busy place full of young people”.
