Reports of two teenagers being stabbed in a fight have led to police cordoning off Radcliffe tram stop last night.

Police and forensic officers have been spotted at the scene.

Metrolink tweeted: "Due to a police incident, services are unable to stop at Radcliffe tram stop.

"Passengers are advised to board/alight services at Bury or Whitefield.

"Please check back for further updates."

A GMP spokesperson said: "At around 6.45pm on Sunday 10 October 2021 police were called to a report of males with weapons and a possible stabbing at the Metrolink Stop on Spring Lane in Radcliffe.

"Officers have attended and one man has been taken to hospital with slash injuries which are not believed to be life threatening.

"Three juveniles have been detained on suspicion of section 18 assault and remain in custody for questioning.

"Anyone with information about this incident should contact police on 0161 856 8172 quoting log 2852 of 10.10.21. Alternatively details can be passed anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

This comes amid a recent police crack down on crime and anti-social behaviour across the Manchester public transport network in response to increasing reports of disorder.

Yesterday GMP Bury North posted on Facebook: "Officers are out patrolling the public transport network to tackle and reduce ASB & Criminality, working with partners such as TfGM to reassure you as you travel on the network."

Metrolink passengers are being advised to use Bury and Whitefield stations instead.
