A message from Chief Constable Ian Hopkins
First and foremost I would like to say a big thank you to all frontline workers who are continuing to lead the response against COVID-19 and keep members of the public as safe as possible during these uncertain times.
At around 9.20pm on Monday 3 February 2020, two GMP officers were leaving Stalybridge Police Station when they heard glass smashing and saw a fire underneath a personal vehicle belonging to one of their colleagues. The officers then observed a man throwing an object at the car before leaving the scene on foot towards Trinity Street.
