Police have stepped up patrols in the area following the reports and are encouraging residents to report any anti-social behaviour to police. 

Inspector Jordan Quinn said, “Everyone in our communities has the right to feel safe and protected where they live and we do not tolerate such anti-social behaviour on our streets.

“I would also urge all parents and guardians of young people across Merseyside to know where they are, who they are with and what they are doing

“We know how concerning anti-social behaviour can be for the community, particularly vulnerable and elderly people, so I strongly encourage members of the public to report incidents of anti-social behaviour to the police so we can take action.”
