Police made more arrests after an incident in which one man was shot and one man was stabbed in Oldham.

They said they attended the incident in the area of Busk Road at around 8.30pm on Wednesday (May 22).

Initially two men in their 20s, the men with injuries, were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. They were taken to hospital for treatment to their injuries where they remain at this time.

On Friday (May 24), police made more arrests in raids across Greater Manchester. Two women in their 20s were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender both of whom were bailed.

Detective Inspector Alex Wilkinson, of GMP's Major Incident Team, said: "Although our enquiries are still in their early stages we are appealing for information from this week to help us to formulate what happened in the moments leading up to two people becoming injured.

"I understand the concern this will have raised around the areas but I want to provide reassurance we are conducting regular patrols, searching through hours of CCTV and making progress to make sure we find all those responsible and we will be relentless until we do so.

"Our work will continue this weekend and next week but recent intelligence suggests it was a targeted attack.

"I would like to thank those who have reached out to us already, and for anyone who might have a tiny bit of additional evidence, you can contact us in confidence."
