Police have condemned as 'disgraceful' an incident in Salford in which two officers were injured.
It happened last night outside Ellesmere Shopping Centre in Walkden after a large number of youths were reportedly smashing lights and throwing bottles in the shopping centre.
Two officers attended and found a large group of teenagers in the carpark near to Tesco.
As they tried to detain a teenager they were confronted by the youths and during a struggle both officers sustained injuries.
Both were taken to hospital for treatment. One officer suffered a broken ankle and remains in hospital requiring surgery.
Another suffered back and nerve damage and has since been released.
A 14-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of assaulting two police officers and criminal damage. He has been bailed until later today.
“It is absolutely disgraceful that two of our hard-working officers have been injured when they were simply doing their job.
“If you were part of the crowd last night, or know something that could help with our investigation, please do the right thing and contact police at the earliest possible opportunity.
“We know a lot of the disorder was filmed on phones and is likely to be shared around. If you have any footage or are aware of any then please make police aware immediately.”
