This morning (1 September 2021) Terry Woods QPM officially took up his new post of Deputy Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police This morning (1 September 2021) Terry Woods QPM officially took up his new post of Deputy Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police after he was sworn in at an attestation ceremony held at the force's Headquarters in Newton Heath. In the presence of Magistrate Stephen Paine, Deputy Chief Constable Terry Woods swore his oath and signed the Memorandum of Appointment, which officially confirms his role as Deputy Chief Constable. DCC Terry Woods is no stranger to policing in the North West, having spent over 25 years working at Lancashire Constabulary. He joined the force in 1996 as a Police Constable in Burnley, before rising through the ranks to Deputy Chief Constable in 2019. He has worked in various locations across Lancashire and brings with him a wealth of experience having worked in numerous roles including Response, Road Policing and Motorway, Support Unit, Child Sexual Exploitation Teams, Neighbourhood Policing, Specialist Operations and Change Management. DCC Terry Woods played a leading role in his previous force's Covid-19 response and also leads nationally on Police Driving. In June 2021 he was awarded the Queen's Police Medal in recognition of his exemplary operational leadership. DCC Terry Woods said:
  2. A major search operation is underway after reports of a 19-year-old male seen struggling and in dificulties whilst in the water in the Erie Basin at Salford Quays. The forces helicopter was dispatched to the scene to aid in the search from the air. Specialist crews used an inflatable dingy to search the water, whilst a police cordon was put into place in the area. A diving team were seen to be conducting an underwater search and a tent has now been erected within the inner cordon. Despite an active police search taking place, youngsters continued to take to the water at the other end of the basin as well as the adjoining canals on what is one of the hottest days of the year so far. Salford City Council has repeatedly warned of the dangers of unsupervised swimming in the area due to the strong currents and hidden risks beneath the surface. There are signs dotted around the Quays warning of the dangers and yet they are continually ignored. A number of safety devices have been placed around the waters due to previous incidents and for the safety of the public. Wild swimming unsupervised like this is highly dangerous. Colin and his wife Trish, who were visiting the area from Sale told us: A spokesperson for GMP said: A spokesperson for GMFRS said:
  3. At about 3.30am on 18 July, police officers on patrol witnessed a vehicle collide with the Blackfriars Pub on Blackfriars Road, Salford, and subsequently catch fire. The front door of the historic building which was due to reopen this month was left damaged. Two male casualties were rescued from the vehicle by police officers, who then tried to put out the fire. NWAS and GMFRS also attended and the two men were taken to hospital where one of the men, the passenger aged 23, has sadly died despite the best efforts of the emergency services. The driver, also 23, remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital. There is a scene in place and an investigation by GMP's Serious Collision Investigation Unit is under way. PC Andrew Nicholson said: Information can also be reported online or by using the Live Chat function at www.gmp.police.uk. If you can't report online, call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

  5. Police were called to an address on Cook Street in Salford at 7.26am this morning (Tuesday 22 June, 2021) to a report of a concern for the welfare of a man. Emergency Services attended, and sadly discovered the body of a 48 year old man. Police quickly cordoned off an area on Cook Street and Madeira Place, whilst forensics officers carried out searches of the area. A murder investigation has now been launched into the circumstances surrounding his death. Patrols have been stepped up in the area. Detective Chief Inspector Ben Cottam, from GMP's Major Incident Team said:
  6. Police were called just before 11.30pm on Saturday 19 June 2021 to a report of a firearm discharge at a property on Anson Street, Eccles. Police attended and following enquiries located damage to the door of a property that was consistent with that of a firearm discharge. No injuries have been reported and no arrests have been made. Enquiries are ongoing and a scene remains in place. Detective Inspector Rebecca Mills of GMP's Salford district, said: Anyone with information should contact police on 0161 856 1442 quoting incident 3586 of 19/06/21. Details can also be passed to police via our online live web chat function at www.gmp.police.uk.

  7. Officers in Manchester city centre arrested a man in a hotel yesterday after an estimated 26,000 fraudulent text messages purporting to be a delivery company were sent in one day. Our PCSOs attended a hotel on Charles Street at around 3.30pm on Thursday 17 June after hotel staff reported suspicious activity by a man seen with a large amount of cables in a bag. The man's hotel room was then found to equipment in the room that officers were able to establish can be used as part of a text message scam to defraud people - known as phishing. A 21-year-old man from Manchester was arrested at the scene on suspicion of fraud by misrepresentation. He remains in custody for questioning. Detectives from our City of Manchester Central division and Cybercrime Team have seized electronic equipment and a car as part of their enquiries. It is estimated that yesterday alone around 26,000 text messages had already been sent from the devices purporting to be from Hermes asking for bank details after a missed delivery. A total of 44,000 mobile phone contacts are also believed to have been stored on the devices. An investigation is underway and police are reminding the public to be aware and vigilant of such attempted mobile scams. Detective Inspector Mark Astbury, of GMP's City of Manchester Central division, said: Anyone affected by this case or with information or concerns can contact Action Fraud here: Report a phishing attempt | Action Fraud or police online, if able, via www.gmp.police.uk or call 101. If you have received an email which you’re not quite sure about, forward it to the Suspicious Email Reporting Service (SERS): report@phishing.gov.uk Details can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Scam emails warning What is it? Scam emails are sent from fraudsters to trick victims into disclosing personal and sensitive information. The emails often claim to be sent from trusted sources such as banks or HMRC. They will ask you to click on a link and then enter personal information which can be used to defrauded you or steal your identity. How to protect yourself Check the address the email has been sent from. By using your mouse to hover over or right-click on the sender name, you will be able to see the email address behind it. Fraudsters often have bizarre email addresses or one that doesn't quite match with the company they are claiming to be. Look to see who the email addressed to. Often fraudsters will use an impersonal greeting such as 'Hi' or 'dear customer'. Don't feel pressured. Scam emails will often claim there is a time limit or sense of urgency for you to act now, but don't feel pressured. Take your time to make the checks you need. Watch out for out for spelling and grammar mistakes. Also look out for slight changes in things such as a website link. This could look very similar to the company's real website, but even a single character difference means it is leading you to different website. Think about whether you are expecting an email from that company. If it's out of the blue, it could be a scam.
  8. Police searching for a missing woman from Salford have sadly found a body believed to be that of Malgorzata Swiatlon. Officers became concerned for the 37-year-old who was last seen on South Radford Street in Salford at around 1pm on Monday 14th June. A body is said to have been recovered from the River Irwell in Lower Broughton earlier today (Weds 16th June). Her next of kin have now been informed. There are believed to be no suspicious circumstances around her death and a file has now been passed to the coroner.
  9. Detectives from Greater Manchester Police's dedicated team to tackle organised crime in Salford are speaking to a man and woman in custody after a shotgun was recovered during a warrant in Little Hulton. At around 7.30am earlier today (Friday 11 June) officers from the local neighbourhood team raided an address on Carrfield Avenue where a viable shotgun was seized and taken away in evidence. A 48-year-old man and 54-year-old woman have been arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm and are currently being interviewed. The action is part of GMP Salford's long-running wider operation into organised crime in the city - codenamed Arctic. Members of the public with concerns or information are asked to continue reporting to police in confidence. Detective Inspector Rebecca Mills, of GMP Salford's Operation Arctic, said: Anyone with information or concerns around crime in Salford should report to police online, if able, via www.gmp.police.uk or 101. Always call 999 in an emergency. Details can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
  10. Police are once again urging the public to report non-emergency matters online instead of calling 999 after experiencing the busiest day of the year so far. Forces across the country have reported seeing significant demand on call handlers after a surge in emergency calls being made to police. Greater Manchester Police has been no different and Tuesday 8 June 2021 was the busiest day of the year so far with 3,628 calls (2,101 of which were 999s) coming into the Operational Communications Branch. Last weekend (Friday 4 June 2021 - Sunday 6 June 2021) saw a total of 6,902 999 calls made to GMP. There are a number of factors that have been cited as the reason for the increase in calls, such as the good weather, easing of lockdown restrictions and public events taking place. It is anticipated that demand on services will continue this weekend so officers are once again desperately urging the public to think before dialling 999 and instead report all non-emergency matters online wherever possible. The public can report a crime or information online by visiting www.gmp.police.uk and clicking 'Report' or by speaking to a call handler using the LiveChat service on the bottom right of the homepage screen 24 hours a day. Crime reference numbers and other queries can also be dealt with online and will help to ensure those in an emergency can speak to our call takers faster. Assistant Chief Constable Nick Bailey said:
  11. Detectives in Salford and north Manchester are investigating three firearms discharges in the last three days. Thankfully, no life-threatening injuries have been reported at any of the incidents in the Cheetham Hill, Broughton, and Boothstown areas respectively, and there is nothing to support that the three are linked. However, police are treating the incidents very seriously following a stark decrease in discharges since the end of March thanks to targeted disruption activity by dedicated taskforces in both cities. The first of the incidents occurred before 8pm on Tuesday 8 June to a report of a 30-year-old man arriving with a serious wound to the leg. Subsequent enquiries have found evidence that it's likely to have been a targeted incident that may have taken place on Dinnington Drive, Cheetham Hill, and investigators continue to appeal for information. The night after, two shots were fired at an address on Great Cheetham Street West, Broughton, shortly prior to 11pm. No one was injured. The latest incident was last night (Thursday 10 June) at around 6.20pm when shots were fired from a black Vauxhall Astra towards a group of men following an altercation which happened off Booths Hall Way. Detectives have been unable to identify any victims of the attack so far and their enquiries, including speaking to the many witnesses in the area and CCTV, are ongoing. No arrests have been made for any of the incidents and appropriate patrol plans are in place for over the weekend. Detective Superintendent Chris Packer, of GMP Salford's district, said: Anyone with information or concerns about the Salford incidents should call GMP Salford's Swinton CID on 0161 856 4532. Information about the incident in Cheetham Hill should be called into City of Manchester North's Central Park CID on 0161 856 3728. Details can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
  12. Earlier this evening at around 6:25pm (Thursday 10th June 2021), police officers are said to have attended a report of a male who witnesses say had pointed and discharged a handgun twice in the location, on a canal bridge close to the Moorings public house on Booths Hall Way in Boothstown. We are being told that at present police have so far found no evidence of any firearms discharge and thankfully no persons are being reported as having been injured. Patrols attended the scene and promptly carried out searches but no offenders have so far been located or identified, however, there remains a large police presence in the area and a temporary cordon has been put in place restricting traffic in both directions along Booths Hall Way from Highclove Lane to Leigh Road. The public are advised to avoid the area and local busses are being re routed. The cordon is expected to remain in place over-night as police continue their investigations. An unnamed witness has said that quick thinking staff instructed patrons to take cover inside the pub, after which the doors were locked tightly shut until the arrival of the police. Other residents in the area reported hearing a car engine being revved loudly and the sound of screeching tyres not long after the two distinctive bangs were heard, prompting suggestions from some that it could have been the car back-firing. The pub has since closed for the rest of the evening and anyone who has a booking is being advised not to turn up and to avoid the area. Police say that the investigation is at a very early stage and is being led by local detectives. Patrols in the area have been stepped up this evening with a highly visible police presence to reassure locals. Anyone with information is asked to report it online or by using the LiveChat facility on www.gmp.police.uk. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
  13. It has been almost a year since when in June 2020 GMP responded to two large illegal raves in Greater Manchester, one in Daisy Nook and the other in Carrington. One of these raves saw the tragic death of a member of the public, many others injured and officers being assaulted. Since these raves we have had a dedicated operation in place to scan intelligence and to supply extra resources around hot spot areas to ensure we stop these events taking place. A large number have been prevented by reacting to intelligence we have found, or that has been reported to us by members of the public. Officers will proactively visit the addresses of organisers and issue a cease and desist letter to stop the illegal activity taking place. As well as these raves being illegal, they are also highly dangerous to anyone in attendance. No medical team are on-site to help in emergencies and if emergency services are needed, the remote sites and large crowd can also delay the team reaching anyone in need. This is unfortunately what happened at one of last year's raves and is not something we want to see happen again. A man had been stabbed and it took our officers eight minutes, on foot, to reach him after he was reported as being unconscious and not breathing. It was quicker for them to abandon their vehicles due to the isolated location and uneven terrain. Officers provided life-saving CPR and an ambulance took him to hospital. Policing these illegal events means that a large amount of resource is pulled away from potentially more critical incidents so we urge you not to attend. You may face arrest and prosecution if you are found at an illegal rave. We all have individual responsibility for protecting ourselves and those around us, which is especially important as we are still in a pandemic. ACC Chris Sykes / Supt. Graeme Openshaw said: If you have any information that you would like to report to us, please do so by calling 101 or reporting it online at https://www.gmp.police.uk/ro/report/
  14. Police have arrested two men after a stabbing outside a gym in Salford last night. Just before 7.10pm this evening (8 June 2021), officers were called to a report of stabbing at Regents Park on Ordsall Lane. Emergency services attended and a man in his 20s was taken to hospital where he remains with serious but not life-threatening injuries. Detectives from Salford CID are investigating and enquiries so far suggest the victim was involved in an altercation with four men who had got out of a black Seat Leon and assaulted him. The Seat was later traced to an address in the Moss Side area and seized. Two men - aged 18 and 19 - were later detained and taken to custody for questioning on suspicion of section 18 assault. Investigators are appealing for witnesses and anyone in the area who may have any dash cam footage around the time of the attack to come forward. Detective Inspector Thomas Willis, of GMP Salford's Swinton CID, said: Anyone with information is encouraged to contact police on 0161 856 5194 quoting incident number 2483 of 08/06/2021. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
  15. Greater Manchester Police officers are carrying out an investigation following a report of a stabbing outside of JD Gym in on Regent Road Retail Park this evening (8 June 2021). Just before 7.10pm this evening (8 June 2021), officers were called to a report of stabbing on Regents Park on Ordsall Lane. Emergency services attended and a man in his 20s was taken to hospital where he remains with serious but not life-threatening injuries. No arrests have been made so far and an investigation is underway. Despite a large police presence the Gym remains open with access via the side door. Detective Sergeant Zoe Marsden, from GMP's Salford CID, said:
  16. Police are currently investigating the currently unexplained death of a man who was found dead in his home in Walkden yesterday evening. (Weds 7th June).

  17. A man from Salford has admitted money laundering and drug offences after police executed three warrants in the Eccles area and seized nearly £200,000 in cash and class B drugs. Anthony Stephenson (04/12/1986), of Westwood Crescent, had been charged with possession with intent to supply a controlled substance and money laundering. He appeared at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court today (Friday 4 June) where he admitted both counts. He was arrested yesterday (3 June) after dawn raids at his addresses and two other Salford addresses on Old School Court and Mitcheson Gardens. Hitting the jackpot: Part of the haul that officers discovered in Eccles yesterday It was at his address and the Mitcheson Gardens address where officers discovered a large quantity of cash - linked to Stephenson - within locked safe deposit boxes. A Cops and Robbers gambling machine was also discovered at one of the addresses where much of the £192,210 total was recovered. Controlled substances packaged for supply, believed to be amphetamine, were also found in Stephenson's possession and he was arrested and taken to custody. Stephenson has been recalled to prison for a breach of his license conditions and will be sentenced at a later date for the offences he pleaded guilty to today. A 31-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a controlled substance and he has since been released while enquiries continue. The Op Naseby disruption team have made their mark since forming in April 2020 The action comes as part of GMP Salford's Operation Naseby - a dedicated taskforce to tackling and disrupting organised crime in the city. Since its inception of the 'disruption hub' in April 2020, it has seen a notable decrease in organised crime activity, including a 40% drop in firearms discharges between April 2020 and March 2021. Anyone with information or concerns should contact police online, if able, via www.gmp.police.uk, or 101. Always call 999 in an emergency. Details can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

  19. Police were called to reports of gunshots having been heard in Little Hulton during the early hours of Tuesday morning (4th May). A police cordon has been established around a property on Madams Wood Road in the area which appears to have suffered damage to a lower storey window. Armed officers were seen in the area shortly afterwards but have since stood down. Police have revealed that fortunately no injuries occurred as a result of the incident. An investigation is on-going and police remain at the scene this morning. A spokesperson for GMP said: Anyone with information is asked to call 0161 856 5194 or 101 quoting incident number 105 of 04/05/2021 or report online at gmp.police.uk.

  20. An investigation is on-going into the violent disorder surrounding protests at Old Trafford yesterday which saw a number of officers injured Police were aware of a planned protest at Old Trafford yesterday (Sunday 2 May) and were working closely alongside partners to ensure those that attended were kept safe whilst enabling their right to peaceful protest. By late afternoon 1,000 protesters had gathered at Old Trafford and 200 separately at the Lowry Hotel in Salford where the United players were staying. Officers continued to monitor the situation and engage with those present, however they were met with hostility as flares were let off and bottles and barriers were thrown at police officers and horses. Six police officer injuries have been reported so far with one officer receiving a fractured eye socket, requiring medical treatment, and another sustained a wound to his face, following bottles and cans being thrown from the crowd. A third officer was dragged and kicked. The officer who attended hospital has since been discharged. As the situation increased in hostility, additional officers had to be deployed and officers had to be drawn in from neighbouring forces to assist Greater Manchester officers. A 28-year old man has been arrested as a consequence of this investigation and all available evidence is being urgently reviewed to identify both the organisers of this protest and those responsible for the officer assaults. GMP Assistant Chief Constable Nick Bailey, said: Anyone with information can contact police on 0161 856 7573 quoting incident number 955 of 02/05/21.
