A 63 year old man was murdered near a Tesco Petrol station on Wednesday Night.  A 44 year old man and a woman have been arrested in connection with his murder.

The investigation is still under way with most of Greenock’s main roads closed and a post-mortem examination will take place later this week. The man was badly injured but later sadly died in hospital. Det Ch Insp Capaldi said:”I am keen to speak to anyone who was in the area of Dalrymple Street and Laird Street in the early hours of Wednesday morning, who either witnessed an altercation take place, or who witnessed anything suspicious, to come forward to police as a matter of urgency.”
