A MAN police want to speak to following the murder of a mother and daughter in Southport is from Burnley.

Barry Morrow (51) has not been seen since the bodies of Angela Holgate (54) and Alice Huyton (75) were found dead at Ms Holgate’s home at 5-45 p.m. on Saturday.

Post-mortem examination results showed they died of asphyxiation, with Ms Holgate dying before her mother.
