A murder investigation is underway after Adam Wilson, 25, was found with a serious knife injury to his leg at a house in Lostock Hall.


Police and ambulance crews were called to the house at Albrighton Crescent on Monday after reports of  a disturbance.

Wilson was taken to Royal Preston Hospital but died a short time later.

Lancashire Police have arrested a 21 year old man on suspicion of murder and are also looking to speak to another man acting suspiciously in the area in the hours before the incident.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil Ashton said: “This is a tragic incident where a young man has lost his life. I would appeal for anyone who has any information, however unimportant they think it may be, to come forward and contact us. I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who saw a man described as white male, early twenties, wearing dark coloured tracksuit top and tracksuit bottoms who may have had with him a red mountain bike in the area on Monday.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
