A spokesman for Merseyside Police said: “Eight men and one woman have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A and B drugs.

“We fully understand the scourge that drug trafficking and related gang crime represents for our communities and we are determined to eradicate it.

said Sefton Superintendent Graeme Robson: “I want our communities to know that even during a pandemic our work does not stop – it’s really business as usual when it comes to tackling criminals and bringing them to justice.

“It is also important that we are able to identify the vulnerable people in our communities who are being exploited by these gangs and provide them with the help they need.

He added: “We have spent a lot of time gathering information and intelligence so that we can take this action today to rid the streets of class A and B drugs and the people who sell and distribute them.
