Police were called to a disturbance around the McDonald's restaurant in Walkden last night after reports of local youths causing a disturbance for a second night.

Local News

A large gang of youths terrorising Walkden have been described as 'hooligans and embarrassment to the community' by local residents.

Shortly before 8.45pm on Tuesday 20 February 2018, police were called to reports of a disturbance on High Street in Walkden.

This comes after an incident on Monday evening, involving what appears to be the same group of youths, two police officers were injured and hospitalised as they tried to gain control of what was described by police as a riot. 

The youths returned for the second night in a row last night to cause disturbance and anti social behaviour, this time focusing on the local McDonalds Restaurant.

Officers attended and found a large group of teenagers who fled the scene.

One witness told us how she was trying to drive off the car park with her two frightened children in the car when she was prevented from doing so by teenagers blocking her exit. She beeped and asked them to move but they became abusive towards her.

Fortunately, another driver managed to make them move and she made her escape.

As she was exiting the car park she saw one hoody wearing youth throw what appeared to be a half-full plastic bottle at a man riding along on his bike. The man stopped to look back but decided not to engage with the gang and so carried on towards Swinton.

GMP said that enquiries into the full circumstances around this incident are ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting incident number 2102 of 20/02/18.
