Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was kidnapped at gunpoint in Bury.

It happened around 8.45pm on Wednesday 22 March 2017 at Lepp Crescent in the town.

A 21 year-old man and his friend were in a Silver Volkswagen Scirocco when they were rammed by a black Toyota Avensis. The Scirocco then collided with a lamppost.

Two men wearing balaclavas got out of the Toyota and threatened them with a gun. They stole the VW Sciroccoa forcing the victim to stay in the car as they drove away.

The victim was later found safe but with cuts and bruises.

A 41 year old man has been arrested.

Specialist counselling for Edge Hill University students caught up in terror attack

Edge Hill University students caught up in the London terrorist attack will be offered help from specialist counsellors from the 'Foundation for Peace' in Warrington.

The charity set up by Colin Parry who lost his son in the IRA bombing in the town, offers counselling for victims of terrorist attacks.

Thirteen students and one member of staff were in London for a trip to the Houses of Parliament.

Four students were injured when the attacker drove a car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge.

I have to say the students have been incredibly resilient. It's been a very emotional experience for them and varying degrees of upset and trauma.

One of the things we'll be focussing on is the emotional as well as practical support we can provide.
