Organisers of a lockdown flat party have been branded 'sefish.'
GMP were originally called to a property on Deansgate on Saturday morning (January 16), to reports of a breach of Covid regulations.
Police said they found no evidence of a breach but their investigations revealed a gathering had taken place at an apartment on Greengate in Salford.
Four attendees of the lockdown flat party were subsequently issued with fixed penalty notices for breaking Coronavirus regualtions.
Pictures and videos were posted on the party-goers public Instagram pages prompted members of the public to report them to the police.
Footage seen by the Manchester Evening News appeared to show guests getting close together for selfies, popping bottles of champagne, dancing, and sucking on balloons.
One picture shows a group of several people toasting with bottles of the beer Corona.
Another photo, which was posted on one revellers' Instagram Story, used a filter which showed a time stamp of 2.15am on Saturday 16 January.
The M.E.N understands that some of the guests travelled from as far as Clitheroe in Lancashire, to attend the party.
"They could be passing Covid on to to other residents - it's disgusting," said one concerned member of the public, who wished to remain anonymous.
One social media user, who spotted the videos on Instagram, said they emailed GMP on Friday night to report the party as a breach of coronavirus lockdown rules.
They then decided to phone the police on Saturday morning, after seeing that the party had continued until the early hours of the morning.
"I just think it's disgusting and they need to be stopped," they said.
"It's just selfish. There are people getting furloughed and losing their jobs, it is disgusting.
"There are old people dying at they are out partying putting it on Instagram for everyone to see."
A spokesperson for GMP said: "Shortly after 8.30am on Saturday 16 January police received a report of a breach of Covid regulation at a property on Deansgate.
"Officers found no evidence of a breach at that address but their investigations established that people had gathered at an apartment on Greengate in Salford.
"Four Fixed Penalty Notices were issued to attendees of the party."
