This week confirmed cases of Coronavirus in the Crossens area of Southport rose by a staggering 223 infections.

It was one of the biggest rises in virus spread in the Liverpool City Region over the last week as the virus took hold in the north end of Southport.


It follows a light aircraft flying over Crossens and Churchtown last week encouraging people to break lockdown.

In contrast the town centre has some of the lowest level of Coronavirus cases.

This November, Sefton Council will continue to support coronavirus testing, seven days a week, at locations across the Borough – ensuring an easy and straightforward process for those with symptoms to book a test.

Mobile Testing Units, where residents can drive in for their booked tests, and local walk-through test centres will operate at various locations in Sefton.
