Police across Greater Manchester have arrested 170 people as part of an operation targeting domestic abuse and violent crime.
16 of those arrested were wanted violent offenders.
Operation Harvest ran in city and town centres targeting alcohol-related violence. Two-hundred and ninety one visits to licensed premises were conducted and the numbers of officers on patrol were increased in violent crime hotspots.

Domestic abuse is not acceptable, it is not only the victim that suffers but their children, who witness or hear the abuse happening. Working with our partners, we want to urge victims to come forward now and report it, if not for themselves then for the sake of their children.
The victims and their children who witness domestic abuse have the right to be respected, the right to be safe, secure and not to be afraid in their own homes.
The public are being urged to support police in the crackdown by visiting their website (gmp.police.uk) to see photos and information on wanted offenders and provide information that could help bring them to justice. Twitter users can follow #harvest @gmpolice for the latest information.
