CHEMICALS found during a drugs raid in Sutton are said to be of no danger to the public.
A large police operation was underway yesterday, Thursday, after a large amount of chemicals - believed to be used in the manufacture of drugs - were discovered at a property on Sutton Road.
People living nearby were advised to keep their windows and doors closed while Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service determined if there was any risk to the public.
Merseyside Police has since reopened Gaskell Street and Baxters Lane following an examination of the chemicals which confirmed they are of no danger to the public and residents are now safe to reopen their doors and windows.
Officers arrested a 61-year-old man and 39-year-old woman following the raid, which took place at around 7.30pm on Wednesday, October 2, on suspicion of being involved in the manufacture of drugs.
The property itself has been retained as a crime scene while the police investigation continues.
