The area covering Fishwick, St Matthews, and parts of Deepdale and Ribbleton means police can stop and search anyone without needing suspicion.

Police say the use of Section 60 is in response to a belief violence could take place in the area.

Officers can also require face coverings or disguises to be removed.
