Cllr Graham Greenhalgh has spoken of his anger at local schoolchildren being attacked, beaten up and mugged in recent weeks, as has been widely reported on social media.
“It is absolutely disgraceful that in an area like ours, our children can’t feel safe around the villages. Children have been hit, had bikes, phones and other items stolen. We need to get to grips with this, and quickly.
“Our children should be able to go to and from school safely. They should be able to walk around the village and see their friends in safety. Mayor Andy Burnham has hiked up our council tax to pay for more police, but with no guarantee those officers will be in our area. Our local MP Mary Robinson has tried to play down the problem. We need more police in Cheadle and Gatley, not more excuses.”7 Comments
