Police have imposed a dispersal zone in Liverpool, north west England, until midnight, as they attempt to clear the street of anti lockdown protesters.
According to the Liverpool Echo, about 200 protesters were marching through the streets of the city on Saturday afternoon, chanting “freedom” as they were shepherded by police.
DISPERSAL ZONE | We’ve introduced a Dispersal Zone in #Liverpool city centre from 11am-midnight today after a gathering last weekend breached coronavirus legislation. Officers will have a visible presence & deal with any unlawful gatherings. Read more https://t.co/j0Qv8Rj4Ym pic.twitter.com/FJlpatN1VY
Such gatherings in Liverpool in recent weeks have involved several hundred people showing a lack of social distancing with many not wearing face coverings, and last weekend we brought in a Section 34 dispersal zone to disperse an unlawful gathering that formed at the Bombed Out Church.
We arrested a number of people on suspicion of breaching the dispersal zone after they had returned to the area, and investigations are ongoing. If people continue to gather unlawfully, we will not hesitate to take the same course of action.
