These are the two men police want to speak to after a customer was smashed over the head with a glass bottle in an unprovoked attack at a violence-plagued Manchester city centre takeaway.
It’s shocking, this violence at late-night take aways. Someone should do something about it.
Last week the M.E.N. revealed that the takeaway, in Manchester’s Gay Village, had been banned from opening late at night after a string of incidents including the above attack, which happened at 5am on December 7.
GMP requested a review of the venue’s premises licence in January, after warning bosses about improving security, CCTV and not opening longer than their licence allowed.
It can no longer sell food or drink between 11pm-5am with council bosses withdrawing its premises licence over safety and environmental health concerns.
Well, that’s ‘something’. No take aways, no problems! And if you just wanted a bite to eat late at night, tough!
It’s increasingly a policy that the police pursue, as Anna Raccoon points out, with no apparent thought that this is not their decision to make in a free society.
