Police Forced To Break Up Street Party Of Over 30 People 'Using Drink And Drugs'

Police Forced To Break Up Street Party Of Over 30 People 'Using Drink And Drugs'

Police officers were called out to break up a street party in Manchester that was attended by up to 40 people.

Bodycam footage and a call reporting the activity has been shared by Greater Manchester Police in the hope of dissuading others from similar activity.

The party was taking place on a residential street in an undisclosed area of Greater Manchester, despite the strict measures that have been put in place by the government to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Basically, you're supposed to be staying home and only leaving the house for essential supplies or medicine, or for one period of exercise each day.

Even when you're out, you're supposed to be maintaining a safe social distance of more than two metres from other people.

That doesn't mean attending a street party, which is why the police showed up to break up proceedings.

When the cops arrived, several people were riding about on bikes, and several bottles can be seen on the ground.

The police force has released the audio from a 101 call made to them to report the party. In that clip, a person can be heard saying to the operator: "There's a massive street party going on here with drugs and drink and everything outside a house.

"There's 30, 40 people and there's cars and everything going off.

"Playing football and they're on bikes and everything."

When asked about whether those in attendance are children, the informant continued: "No they're around about 20ish, 25ish. There's just cars pulling up all the time."

Greater Manchester Police recently released a video with several celebrities, including Happy Mondays singer Shaun Ryder and Manchester United footballer Marcus Rashford, to support their #StayHomeSaveLives campaign.

GMP Chief Constable Ian Hopkins also issued a warning to citizens over the Easter period, reminding them that 'each and every one of us need take this seriously'.

The force reported 1,132 coronavirus-related law breaches between March 25 and April 7. In that number, there were 494 house parties, some of which had DJs, bouncy castles, and fireworks displays.

Needless to say, Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham said this was 'completely unacceptable'.

He said: "They are putting everybody at risk.

"The vast majority of people in Greater Manchester are observing the guidelines, but we cannot have a situation where we've got people flouting the rules.

"If you are going out and about you are putting at risk the most vulnerable members of our community and you need to have a good hard look at yourself."

He's not wrong, either.
