Police have removed a live hand grenade that was found on a garden wall at the home of Liverpool hero Kenny Dalglish.

The explosive device was discovered on Sunday night as police were called to the road in Birkdale after a pair of men were seen acting suspiciously outside the house of John Ball, a local security boss.

The men, aged in their 20s, were arrested on suspicion of witness intimidation.

Mr Ball has been the target of a vendetta this year and has seen his home shot at as well several businesses firebombed.

A Merseyside Police spokeswoman said: "The device was removed and made safe and is currently undergoing forensic examination.

"The road remains cordoned off at its junction with Sandringham Road and high-visibility patrols have been stepped up in the area to reassure the public.

"Detectives believe this incident is linked to a series of other recent incidents in this area and not to the owner of the property where the device was found."
