Superintendent Graeme Robson, area commander for Sefton, said: "Today's action is a result of a long-running investigation into organised criminals we suspect are involved in drug supply in areas of Sefton.”

“We completely understand the impact that serious crime has on the vast majority of law-abiding members of these communities and beyond. I want to reassure residents who saw this morning's activity that we will keep working alongside them to disrupt and apprehend those people who we suspect are bringing intimidation, threat and harm to their streets.”

"Key to any success that we have is information from those communities, so I would urge anyone with information to keep coming forward, either directly to police or through the charity Crimestoppers, which is completely independent of police.”

"No-one should have to put up with drug dealing and the associated crime it attracts. We will continue to work together with our communities to improve the quality of life in our neighbourhood and make those communities stronger."

Cllr Trish Hardy, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing, said: “This important action highlights the ongoing work of both Merseyside Police and Sefton Council in continuing to disrupt this blight on our borough.”

“As a partnership we have a commitment to putting our residents first and creating safe communities across Sefton”

“We want to make sure our strong and vibrant neighbourhoods flourish and we will continue to work closely with Merseyside Police and other partners to disrupt and deter all forms of crime.”
