MAN CHARGED AFTER DISRESPECTFUL FIREWORK STUNT AT ECCLES REMEMBRANCE DAY PARADE

Local News
A man has been charged with a public order offence and for firing fireworks in to a public place. 

Stuart David Potts born 10/7/81 of Borough Road, Salford has been charged with a public order offence and for firing fireworks in to a public place after a shocking display of disrespect at a remembrance day parade in Eccles on Sunday (10th November), he is due to appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates Court today (Monday 11 November 2019).

Shortly after 11.05am yesterday (Sunday 10 November 2019), police were called to reports of a disturbance at a pub on Church Street in Eccles.

Potts had allegedly fired rockets from the second floor window of a pub being used as a squat above the heads of the crowd gathered for the service during the two minute silence to remember the war dead and veterans.

Fortunately no one was injured during the incident, although it could have been a lot worse had the firework hit the crowds, many of whom were elderly veterans and children.

The callous act of stupidity has been condemned by the whole of Salford who have been left outraged at the thoughtless and disrespectful actions.
