A statement has been released by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner following today's reports in regards to the enforcement of coronavirus regulations at Christmas.

A spokesperson for the PCC said: “The PCC Jane Kennedy’s position is, as she said last week, that it is too early to say what, if any, restrictions will be in place for Christmas.

“Merseyside Police will continue to do what they have been doing throughout this pandemic, which is to explain to the public what the restrictions require, including changes to the restrictions, and both engage with and encourage members of the public to abide by the restrictions. Enforcement is always a last resort but will be used where necessary.”
