Police are investigating after five people were arrested in what is believed to be an anti-gay attack in Manchester’s Canal Street.
The incident has come in the days leading up to Manchester Pride, one of the last biggest gay events in the UK this year.
Police were called to Canal Street, the area most popular with the city’s LGBTI community, on 17 August on 11.10pm.
Officers arrested five men who were fighting in the street. Two have been released without charge and three others have been bailed pending further enquiries.
