Merseyside Police Issue Dispersal Order Preventing Crowds From Gathering At Pier Head In City Centre
Merseyside Police has issued a Section 34 Dispersal Order in response to the mass gatherings and scenes of antisocial behaviour on display at the Pier Head in Liverpool City Centre on Friday 26th June.
The Police issued a statement on their website and shared it on social media platforms informing people of the Dispersal Order and the location to which people will be unable to gather for the next 48 hours.
Merseyside Police Inspector Uren said in the statement: "We know a lot of Liverpool fans want to celebrate their Premier League win, but there is a time and a place for this - and this weekend is neither. Tonight we have seen masses of people flock to the Pier Head area heightening the risk of spreading covid-19. We want you to have a good time, but only when that time is right so please continue following government guidelines. By no means should you completely ignore social distancing measures - we must act responsibly whatever the circumstance. Protect yourselves and each other."
