Man Charged With St Helens Morrisons Murder

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a supermarket worker died hours after she tackled a suspected shop lifter on Merseyside.

The woman, 47, was injured at Morrisons on Baxter Lane, St Helens, on Saturday afternoon when she tried to stop a suspected shoplifter fleeing.

The woman later collapsed at home and died on Sunday in hospital.

A spokesman for Merseyside Police said a local man, aged in his 40s, was being questioned by detectives.

Police want to speak to anyone who may have been in the supermarket at the time.

A spokesman for Morrisons said it was "saddened" by the woman's death and that it would fully support the police in their investigation
