BREAKING: Emergency services scrambled as street was blocked – live updates

A residential street in Rochdale has been closed this afternoon as police respond to an ongoing incident in the area. Earlier today (Friday, April 29), multiple police vehicles crashed on Gatesgarth Road in Middleton. The nature of the incident has not yet been confirmed.

Photos of the scene show a large police cordon set up at the intersection of the street, which stretches for most of the road. There are a number of buildings within the cordon.

Several police officers can be seen guarding the area, with a police car at each end of the cordon. The fire brigade has also been alerted to the scene.

Local residents seem to have moved out of their properties and seem to be gathering in the streets. Greater Manchester Fire Brigade and Greater Manchester Police have been contacted for more information.
