Police were called to Ramsbrook Close just before 9pm.

They found two men in their 30s with leg wounds.

:00:21.:00:23.

A third man later turned up at hospital with injuries

:00:24.:00:25.

Detectives believe the attack was targeted.

:00:26.:00:30.

An investigation's under way after a body was found at the scene

:00:31.:00:33.

Five fire engines were called to Coniston Road just

:00:34.:00:38.

A joint police and Fire Service investigation has now been launched.

:00:39.:00:44.

The blaze is currently being treated as unexplained.

:00:45.:00:48.

A Merseyside man whose son was stillborn is preparing for a

:00:49.:00:50.

120-mile charity walk to help other people affected by similar tragedy.

:00:51.:00:55.

Mark Keenan and his partner Lisa are raising money for a CuddleCot,

:00:56.:00:59.

a cooling pad which can be placed in any bed or Moses basket,

:01:00.:01:03.

that allows parents to spend more time with their stillborn babies.

:01:04.:01:07.

The couple, who lost their son Thomas in December 2015,

:01:08.:01:12.

Literally, just hearing those words, "There's no heartbeat," it's just

:01:13.:01:19.

like your entire world is swallowed up in that moment.

:01:20.:01:22.

I went to bathe him and dress him, because that's my

:01:23.:01:24.

responsibility as a dad, to bathe him and dress him

:01:25.:01:27.

And sit with him until they brought Lisa through.

:01:28.:01:31.

Mark and Lisa spent a precious two and a half days

:01:32.:01:34.

He was placed in a special cooled CuddleCot, which allows babies to

:01:35.:01:39.

Having a CuddleCot, it literally gives you the opportunity

:01:40.:01:44.

We read to him, I walked around with him, told him

:01:45.:01:48.

about his older siblings, about his other family members.

:01:49.:01:51.

We had from Friday evening until Monday tea-time to do that.

:01:52.:01:55.

That time that you have, you've got that memory that you have

:01:56.:01:59.

in your heart that will stay with you, in your soul.

:02:00.:02:03.

Now Mark is preparing to walk along the canal from Leeds to Liverpool

:02:04.:02:06.

to raise money to buy a CuddleCot which will help other families.

:02:07.:02:11.

You've obviously been through something that's

:02:12.:02:12.

Does doing something like this help you as you continue to come

:02:13.:02:18.

It helps with part of the grieving process.

:02:19.:02:22.

I'm aiming for three-four days, although we put five on the thing,

:02:23.:02:26.

I'm aiming for three-four, and it's 126 miles.

:02:27.:02:30.

Not all funeral homes have accessibilty to them,

:02:31.:02:36.

not all hospitals have the accessibility to provide them.

:02:37.:02:39.

That's what's driving me, my passion to provide it for people.

:02:40.:02:43.

He's saying, come on, we can do this.

:02:44.:02:48.

A year after they lost Thomas, the couple's daughter

:02:49.:02:50.

She's basically the double of Thomas.

:02:51.:02:54.

The resemblance is striking, definitely.

:02:55.:02:57.

It's bittersweet, because you see how you think Thomas would be

:02:58.:03:00.

And we love her to bits, we love all our children to bits.

:03:01.:03:07.

Mark will start his CuddleCot walk in memory

:03:08.:03:09.

:03:34.:03:37.

start to the season, finishing 13-12 at

:03:38.:03:40.

Knutsford has been named the best place to live in the North West.

:03:41.:03:45.

The Sunday Times Guide 2017 takes into account

:03:46.:03:48.

factors like facilities, transport and community spirit.

:03:49.:03:52.

It also says Knutsford is perfectly placed to capitalise

:03:53.:03:55.

Others named on the region's best list include Chester, Kendal,

:03:56.:04:01.

Now here's Alex Hamilton with the weather.

:04:02.:04:05.

We've had a wet day across the North West today,

:04:06.:04:09.

and more wet weather on the way, with these fronts coming

:04:10.:04:11.

Breezy conditions, with those isobars squeezing together.

:04:12.:04:16.

As we look at the charts tonight, windy at times, those showers

:04:17.:04:20.

Drier spells in between, but a mild night, lows of seven Celsius.

:04:21.:04:29.

Looking at tomorrow morning, more wet weather on the way,

Drier and brighter in the afternoon, that breeze easing down,

I leave you with the outlook, more sunshine and showers on the way,

:04:40.:04:46.

turning noticeably cooler over the next few days.

Good evening. There is some rain coming into the southern half of the

:04:55.:05:13.

UK as we speak. I think by the end of the night it will have got into

:05:14.:05:17.

the Midlands and much of East Anglia as well. A bit of a breeze here as

:05:18.:05:22.

well. Some gusty winds and snow on the hills of Scotland. With all of

:05:23.:05:30.

that going on, it is not particularly cold overnight.

:05:31.:05:31.

Southern areas will hang on to double figures in many towns and

:05:32.:05:35.

cities. A bit of a messy picture for the start of the new week. The rain

:05:36.:05:39.

moves quickly eastwards across Scotland. For Northern England,

:05:40.:05:44.

Wales, the Midlands and South West it is a miserable start to the day.

:05:45.:05:50.

Brighter skies do follow along behind but with some showers. Wintry

:05:51.:05:53.

showers across the hills of
