Section 60 and 60AA is in place following several incidents in Royton

From 8pm tonight (Monday 6 May 2024) until 4am tomorrow (Tuesday 7 May 2024), we have authorised the use of Section 60 and 60AA powers across the area outlined in the map below.

Under Section 60, officers have extra powers to stop and search people in a defined area within the specific times listed. Section 60AA allows us to require people to remove face coverings used to disguise / conceal their appearance.

This tactic has been introduced following a number of incidents of disorder overnight in the Royton area of Oldham, including reports of a group of men with weapons, and an incident which has left a man with life changing injuries.
