Police were called out to reports of “anti-social behaviour” over a rainy and windswept weekend.

Officers were called to the Deakins Mill area of Egerton after hearing reports from people nearby.

They reported attending just after 10.30pm on Saturday.

A Greater Manchester Police (GMP) spokesperson said: “Officers have been responding to reports of anti-social behaviour around Bolton.

“Following complaints from the community, officers have been to Deakins Mill, Egerton to ensure there was no anti-social behaviour.”

An image from the scene supplied by GMP shows two officers and a police van amid a dark and rainy scene at Deakins Mill.

No other people appear to have been in attendance at the time.

So far, GMP has not expanded on the nature of the complaints or if they have made any arrests in connection with the concerns people raised.

But this comes amid concerns about other forms of crime and anti-social behaviour elsewhere in the borough and with various police operations having been launched over recent months.

Anyone with any information or concerns can call police on 101 or 999 in the event of an emergency.

Alternatively, witnesses can contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
