The mayor of Liverpool says pictures of people partying on the street have “shamed” the city.
Joe Anderson posted on Twitter: “These pictures shame our city, attacking our brave police officers is unacceptable.”
It follows pictures of crowds ignoring social distancing and dancing in Concert Square last night, one of the city’s busiest nightlife hotspots, ahead of the city entering Tier 3 restrictions today.
The “large crowd” had to be dispersed after pubs closed at 10pm last night – two hours before the tough new coronavirus restrictions were imposed at midnight.
