A woman has been arrested after an incident last week at the Royal Liverpool Hospital during which police say patients, staff and visitors were harassed.
At around 21:25 hours on Tuesday 12th January, response team officers were called to reports of three women being removed from the hospital after reportedly causing distress to patients, staff and visitors.
One of the women also reportedly directed homophobic abuse towards a male nurse.
Security officers at the hospital were successful in removing the trouble makers from the premises.
A 33-year-old woman from Kensington was arrested on suspicion of using threatening/abusive/insulting words/behaviour to cause harassment/alarm/distress and was taken to a police station for questioning.
She has been released on conditional bail pending further enquiries.
Detectives investigating the incident have asked anyone with any information regarding the matter to contact them via their social media desk on Twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ with reference 21000024838.
