The Hilton Hotel and areas surrounding the Docks have been cornered off by armed police this afternoon.

A police helicopter was seen monitoring the area whilst armed officers patrolled outside the hotel.

The cordon was removed around 3pm this afternoon.  Police then put up a cordon around the back of the Museum of Liverpool.

The news comes just as the Hilton Hotel’s exclusive club, Playground, faces a cocaine crack down after the substance was found in the VIP areas.
