Police surround petrol station on major Liverpool road

A number of police cars descended on a garage in Liverpool this evening.

A video shared with the ECHO shows a large police presence, with a number of vehicles blocking the garage’s entrance.

A witness said the vehicles arrived at the scene of Shell Garage, on Edge Lane, at around 8.45pm. The witness added police remain at the scene tonight.

At least three marked police cars are there, though witnesses say there are also ‘unmarked vehicles’ parked up too.

Merseyside police told the ECHO it was not in a position to make any comment on tonight’s incident at this stage.
