Detectives are investigating the unexplained death of a woman in Liverpool city centre in the early hours of this morning (Saturday 10 September).

Emergency services were called to the Adelphi Hotel at 6.37am to reports of a concern for safety.

When officers arrived they found the body of a 22-year-old woman in a room at the hotel. We are in process of identifying her next of kin and enquiries into the incident are ongoing.

A 26-year-old man, from Seacombe; a 46-year-old man from Liverpool and a 49-year-old man from Widnes have been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the incident, but detectives are keeping an open mind.

Detective Chief Inspector Lynsay Armbruster, said, “We are in the very early stages of the investigation, and are trying to determine the circumstances around the young woman’s death. I would appeal to anyone who was in the hotel in the early hours of this morning who may have seen, or heard anything, at all to come forward.
