Updated: 

Police are hunting a man who walked into a children's nursery armed with a gun.

The suspect entered the Child's Play Nursery in Liverpool at around 8.10am on Wednesday, carrying what is believed to have been a firearm.

He was looking for another man, police said, who is not a staff member at the nursery, who was at the centre in Heathfield Road, Wavertree, as parents dropped their children off for the day.
