A STORM of anti-social behaviour hit areas of Saddleworth and Lees in Oldham over the weekend.

That is according to a Facebook post by GMP Saddleworth West and Lees. The force took to Facebook on Monday, June 7 and revealed a “snapshot” of incidents that police officers tackled.

Wellington Road and Chew Valley Road in Greenfield Oldham were among the areas targeted by “youths” that were caught listening to loud music and littering by police.

Alcohol was seized, and the groups of young people were “spoken to” regarding underage drinking and their details forwarded to the community safety team for follow up, according to the force’s Facebook post.

Local park equipment was meanwhile set alight and damaged at Swan Meadow, in Delph where a large gathering was held.

Groups of underage drinkers also rocked Sandy Lane in Dobcross with another large group affronted by officers as they left the grassed area behind Tanners Mill and descended on the village.

Police also attended three separate fights between revellers on High Street Uppermill on Saturday night administering first aid where required.

The Facebook post has been liked more than 100 times and garnered over 30 comments.

One person wrote: "Thanks for all the work you do to keep our community safe."

Another added: "Hot weather always makes for bad behaviour."
