A STOLEN car has been recovered in Bolton after being used in an "anti-social manner" according to police.

The light blue Renault was seen by community support officers from the Deane and Rumworth teams early on the morning of Thursday January 20 were it was being driven an a potentially dangerous and anti-social style.

The car was known to have been stolen and a police van and tow truck were called to the scene.

Officers say that the Renault's rightful owner has been made aware of this and that it will eventually be returned.

No arrests have yet been reported in connection with the initial theft or the subsequent anti-social activities.

This comes as part of Greater Manchester Police's neighbourhood policing week.
