Merseyside Police said tests are being carried out to establish what the substance is. Pedestrians are being advised to avoid the area while enquiries continue to determine what the substance is and how it got there.

There is speculation on social media that the substance contained fentanyl, but this is yet to be confirmed by police. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is said to be up to 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine.
