A number of people were arrested in a crackdown on anti-social behaviour.

Radcliffe police officers took part in a national campaign to tackle behaviour which distresses others.

Officers taking part in the week of action responded to disturbances, offences and calls to crack down on anti-social behaviour in Bury.

On Monday, officers stopped and searched a 48-year-old man on Colshaw Close South, Radcliffe.

He was arrested for reportedly possessing a Class A drug and taken to Bolton Custody, where he received a conditional caution.

On Thursday, officers supported Transport for Greater Manchester (TFGM) and assisted other departments with Operation Avro by patrolling the Bury tram line.

A traffic operation was conducted in Ainsworth, and on New Road, Radcliffe, on Friday afternoon following speeding complaints.

Ainsworth residents left frightened after 4 accidents in 4 weeks

Tickets were given to several drivers for speeding and for not wearing a seatbelt.

Officers then attended Coronation Gardens in response to ASB calls at the 'friendly bench'.

A Greater Manchester Police (GMP) spokesperson said: “A group of youths were found, and their details were taken under Section 50 of the Police Reform Act.

“They were then dispersed from the area to avoid causing any more problems for the local residents and we will continue to target this area.”

A short time later, police stopped and searched a 35-year-old man on Abbey Close, Radcliffe.

He was reportedly arrested and later charged for possession of a Class A drug and will appear in Court.

On Saturday evening, the neighbourhood team responded to an emergency call regarding an assault and argument at the Wilton Arms Pub, on Coronation Road.

Whilst investigating the assault, a 42-year-old woman allegedly became abusive to officers and patrons.

She was arrested and charged with a  public order offence and being drunk and disorderly, the investigation into the assault continues.

Finally, responding to another emergency call in Ramsbottom, officers arrested a person on Walmersley Road, Bury, for Drug Driving.

A GMP spokesperson said: “Whilst the ASB week of action has ended, we will continue to combat ASB wherever it becomes a problem.”
