A missing woman was saved from certain death by drowning when hero GMP officers waded into freezing water to pull her to safety. At around midday on Monday 1 March 2021, police were called to Eagley Brook in Bolton, due to reports of a concern for welfare for a woman. Officers attended and found a woman, who had previously been reported missing a couple of days before, was submerged in water, stuck in deep mud. Two officers – PC Golding and PC Burrows immediately went to the woman’s rescue, negotiating a deep embankment in order to reach her. Two other officers at the scene – PC Rourke, PC Ashcroft and PC Atkinson, got into position at the edge of the embankment and helped lift the woman out of the cold water and onto the bank where she could receive first aid from North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) paramedics. Because of the remote location, colleagues from Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue (GMFRS) helped paramedics to get the woman out of the woodland, where she was then taken to hospital to receive treatment. All of the officers involved recently received a divisional commander’s ‘good work minute’ for their handling of the incident. Superintendent Steph Parker, GMP’s divisional commander for Bolton, said:
A 23-year-old man from Bolton has been fined £1,000 after failing to respond to self-isolation requirements when he returned from a holiday in Ibiza on Thursday 20 August 2020. GMP received reports that since returning from Spain, one of the countries the government has imposed a 14-day quarantine regulation on for travellers arriving back to the UK, the man had left his home on numerous occasions as well as holding a house party where a number of people attended. After it was reported that the male had been in breach of regulations, he was stopped a few days later by a GMP officer. Officers then issued him a fixed penalty notice of £1,000. Chief Inspector Nicola Williams of Greater Manchester Police, said:
