Three drones that were flown over Taylor Swift concert crowds have been seized by police.

Taylor Swift’s Eras tour arrived in Liverpool on Thursday - the superstar also played last night and will return tonight.

Police say that two drones were seized on Thursday and one last night - and have promised to be on their guard tonight as well. The remote craft were being flown over Anfield Stadium and Stanley Park.

Chief Superintendent Zoe Thornton, who is in charge of the policing operation for the event, said on Friday: “We were made aware of several drones this evening being flown above the stadium while around 53,000 people attended the concert, this puts lives at risk. It is illegal to fly drones, at these heights and over public populated spaces.

“Any drones believed to be flying over Anfield Stadium and populated places for this operation may be seized and owners/users are liable to prosecution."

After tonight, the Eras tour continues at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Tuesday, and then at Wembley Stadium on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
