    Joint statement from Liverpool Football Club, Merseyside Police and Liverpool City Council following mass gathering at the Pier Head last night

    Throughout the last week, Liverpool Football Club, Merseyside Police, Liverpool City Council, public health and Spirit of Shankly, have worked together to consistently remind people that COVID-19 has not gone away and the region is still disproportionately affected by the virus and to dissuade them from coming together for any Premier League victory celebrations.

    Despite this several thousand people turned up at the Pier Head last night (Friday, 26 June).

    The crowd developed very quickly and officers had to close the side roads leading down to the Pier Head from The Strand for public safety. During the evening the over exuberance of some of those in attendance, who were setting off flares and fireworks, resulted in a small fire on a balcony of the Liver building which had to be put out by Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service. We cannot stress enough that behaviour such as this is wholly unacceptable and those who were setting off fireworks and flares in the crowd were putting the safety of those around them at risk.

    Clearly we are still in a public health crisis and we need to work together with the public of Merseyside to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19.

    In some areas of Merseyside crowds have ignored advice to observe social distancing and to avoid gathering in large groups. You can familiarise yourself with the latest Government advice here: https://www.gov.uk/government/public...an-and-cant-do

    The potential danger of a second peak still exists and we need to work together to make sure we don’t undo everything we have achieved as a region during lockdown.

    The Government has made it clear this week that if people continue to ignore guidelines around mass gatherings, whether they be at beaches or beauty spots, or for celebrations like we saw last night and the night before in Liverpool, then they have the ability to close down public spaces and will close areas if necessary.

    We all understand that fans want to celebrate, but now is not the time. We need to get through this first, and know that it is safe, before any victory parade can go ahead.

    But rest assured, when the time is right the city can have a party and paint the town red, but we need to be patient for the safety of the public of Merseyside.

    Im surprised Joe Anderson is working with Spirit of Shankly - he should demand a public apology after the aggressive and arrogant stance they took and how they objected to his comments a few months ago

    And the brainless idiots that were firing rockets up at the Liver Buildings, believe damage was done when one of the window ledges caught fire. Hope they are identified and locked up!!

    That isn't what Merseyside Police or Joe Anderson said, or why a Section 34 Dispersal Order has had to be imposed.

    I doubt very much that Joe Anderson or Merseyside Police are following the thread on this post, that is what I was referring to.

    I think you'll find Merseyside Police and the Mayor's Office do monitor local media sites. And the comments relate to the unwarranted criminal vandalism and mob disorder.

    No social distancing ! yet the pandemic rages on here , just getting over the increase of Deaths in the north west after the invitation of Spanish supporters who"s country was worst hit at the time too. Rubbish everywere plenty of plastic too. There doesnt seem to be any thought, care or respect about anything . a lacking of control . its a shame and a disgrace when we have all sacrificed a lot too over the last few months.

    Correct me if I am wrong but I don't recall Manchester London Blackburn or Leicester being under riot conditions when their respective teams have won the Premier League it isn't sour grapes it is the abhorrence by most people of the eternal victims showing their true colours.
