Fans could be heard clapping and cheering as the firework was shot in the air, with the fire service coming to put out a small fire as a result.

As per the Liverpool Echo, Merseyside fire and rescue confirmed: "We were alerted to a small fire on a patch of astroturf. Firefighters have dealt with the incident and the fire is now out."
