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.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?

We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
