Police promise 'firm, fair' presence at Liverpool - Barcelona Champions League clash
Merseyside Police have promise "firm, fair and friendly" policing at Anfield tonight as Liverpool welcome Barcelona for the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals.
Officers say they expect a "vibrant atmosphere" - but say they are working with both clubs and other partners across the city to make sure it's a safe and enjoyable night for all.
Match Commander Superintendent Paul White said the force "will take action where necessary, against those individuals who may seek to cause problems or misbehave and spoil the evening for the majority of supporters."
