A FIGHT broke out in a garden after vandals set fire to an allotment in Tottington. 

Shortly before 8.50pm a gang of offenders carried out an arson attack at an allotment in Scobell Street.

After they were chased off by an 18-year-old man, a fight then broke out in the front garden of a nearby property. The offenders then fled the scene.

It was previously believed the incident was linked to a separate assault at a nearby property.

Greater Manchester Police were unable to confirm if any arrests have yet been made but said enquiries are ongoing.
