The Greater Manchester Police website has been shut down following a cyber attack. It was only out of action for around 30 minutes last night before it was back up an running. Then site then went down a second time and a Twitter user from Lithuania has claimed responsibility.
Deputy Chief Constable Ian Hopkins confirmed the attack to the MEN and described it as ‘an act of internet vandalism’
A short time later the website became unavailable again and an individual has since claimed responsibility for causing the website to crash.
A group from Lithuania claimed responsibility and also tweeted about a number of other sites they allegedly took down.
A masked man attacked a police car with a hammer following a pursuit late on Sunday.
Shortly after 11:30pm officers from the Greater Manchester Police Intercept Unit spotted two people wearing balaclavas in a black Ford Mondeo at a petrol station on Cromwell Road, Salford and signalled the vehicle to pull over.
The driver of the car ignored the initial attempts and after a short pursuit the offender pulled over on Upper Camp Street, where his passenger jumped out and came towards the police car armed with a hammer.
Fearing for their safety, the driver of the police car rammed the masked assailant, driving him onto the floor.
As this was happening, the driver of the Mondeo rammed the police car twice before turning round and driving towards the junction with Bury New Road, at which point the passenger ran and got back into the car.
The car turned right onto Bury New Road and got away before it was later found abandoned on Thanet Close with a number of weapons inside.
I think it is clear that the occupants of the car were about to commit a violent offence when the officers originally attempted to stop them and their subsequent behaviour only further reinforces that.
It is possible that the actions of the Intercept Unit officers prevented a robbery from taking place as, when they first approached the offenders, they were pulling into a petrol station forecourt wearing balaclavas and carrying a number of weapons.
Although we don’t have a clear description of the offenders, the one who attempted to attack the police with a hammer may have been injured in his attempts and returned home limping.
Anybody with information should contact police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
