The pair are currently in custody where they are being questioned by officers.

Knowsley community policing Superintendent Phil Mullally said: "We will always act on community intelligence relating to the distribution of drugs and the possession and use of weapons.

"The people who live in these neighbourhoods are our eyes and ears and I would urge anyone with information to come forward so that we can take positive action to ensure our communities are safe places for everyone to live, work and visit."
