Police have praised the estimated 50,000 Trade Union Congress (TUC) protesters who staged "the largest protest Greater Manchester Police have had to manage" for their "peaceful and lawful manner".
"It was clear the intentions of the organisers and those who were involved in the march wanted to protest peacefully as is their democratic right to do so," Chief Superintendent John O’Hare said.
“It is pleasing that with a crowd of 50,000 there were only two arrests for low level offences."
One man, aged 19, was arrested for breach of the police while another man, aged 36, was arrested for a public order offence.
