Wirral men arrested at party in St. Helens

Merseyside Police has confirmed that three males were arrested and remain under investigation following reports of a house party in Parr, St Helens last Friday, 5 February.

At around 8.30pm, officers were called to an address on Breccia Gardens, to reports of a gathering. Upon attending to issue fines to those inside, one man reportedly refused to leave the area and obstructed officers. Following a number of warnings, he was detained and taken to a police station for questioning. Two more males initially left the address after being issued with fines but returned and were arrested.

A 20-year-old man from Neston, Wirral was arrested on suspicion of breach of the peace, obstructing police and a Covid breach. He remains under investigation.

A 20-year-old man from Birkenhead, Wirral and a 15-year-old boy from Birkenhead, Wirral were arrested to prevent a further breach of the peace.

Two other males were issued with fines for Covid breaches.

Community Policing Inspector Matt Drennan said, “Our enquiries are ongoing but in the meantime, I’d like to reiterate our commitment to responding to any such gathering, and with infection rates remaining high in St Helens. It’s astonishing for most people in our communities that a small minority of people continue to act in such a selfish way during a pandemic, which has affected us all and continues to put the NHS and the lives of vulnerable people at great risk.

“There are reasons to be hopeful, and to believe these frustrating times will look brighter soon, but the more we’re called to such incidents the greater the risk of prolonging everyone’s pain. Progress is being made with vaccinations but we still need to do everything we can to protect our communities, the NHS and our own frontline staff. We’ll not hesitate to keep taking action when we believe people are flouting the rules.”
