Race goers attended in their thousands for the first day of the Grand National Festival 2022 today, Thursday, 7 April.
Crowds were in high-spirits and a successful policing operation took place to support the event.
Chief Inspector Matthew Moscrop said: “It was great to see everyone out enjoying the Aintree festival today after such a long time without spectators and we hope that everyone had a safe and enjoyable time, despite the blustery weather.
“Even more visitors are expected tomorrow for Ladies Day and so I’d like to remind everyone to plan your journey in advance, leave plenty of time for security searches on the way into the course and drink responsibly but most importantly, have a great time.
“Officers will be both inside and outside the course engaging with the public so do come and say hello to us, highlight any concerns and report any incidents.”
