Thousands of jubilant Liverpool supporters have spent the night celebrating the team’s first league title for 30 years, prompting warnings from police concerned about mass gatherings flouting social-distancing rules.
As a huge crowd sang songs and let off flares outside Anfield, Merseyside police assistant chief constable Rob Carden said the region had been “disproportionately affected” by the coronavirus pandemic and its residents had a responsibility to prevent further cases.
Fans gathered outside the Main Stand at Anfield for when the final whistle blew on Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Manchester City, securing Liverpool the title for the first time since 1990 with seven games to spare.
