An address in Chester was targeted by police this morning (Tuesday, May 24) as part of an ongoing investigation into an incident in Liverpool city centre.
Warrants were executed at five addresses in the UK by Merseyside Police who are investigating a period of disorder near Liverpool Lime Street and St George's Hall on Saturday, February 27.
A total of 33 people were arrested after the disturbance and today five more were arrested at different addresses in Liverpool, Blackburn, Accrington and Midlothian, Scotland for conspiracy to commit violent disorder.
These include a 34-year-old man, a 42-year-old man, a 24-year-old woman, a 19-year-old woman and a 50-year-old man. The five will be questioned by detectives on Merseyside.
Detectives are also continuing to appeal for anyone who hasn’t already submitted video footage or photographs they took on the day to get in touch.
Detective Sergeant Louise Birchall from the Major Crime Unit said: “We are currently pursuing a number of lines of enquiry to identify other people who may have been involved in criminal acts and disorder during that afternoon.
“We are aware that a large number of people who were there on the day, including people who were simply bystanders, filmed or took photographs of what happened on their cameras and mobile phones.
“We would ask anyone who has such footage and who hasn’t already done so to supply it to us so we can identify the people responsible and bring them to justice.”
Anyone with footage or photographs can email them to email@example.com
