Police stormed a "lockdown party" flouting the government's lockdown and social distancing rules.

Residents living on the street say approximately 10 people attended the bash.

A post shared on Facebook described the woman who lived in the house as "selfish". It read: "The police were called, two left and as soon as the police left she let them back in.

"The police came three times which resulted in seven cars and vans blocking the street and at least 15 officers taken off the street."

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police said: "At around 9:30pm on Saturday 4 April 2020, police were called to reports of non-compliance with Government restrictions at a property in Bury.

"Officers attended and a group of people were dispersed."

The bust up comes shortly after police were called to a party in Derby, where a group of 25 adults and children had recklessly gathered with an enormous buffet and karaoke.

Police showed up to shut the party down, before dispersing everyone at the event and “dealing” with the hosts.
