Colin MacDiarmid, Chief Inspector of the City of Manchester, said: “There is no denying that there was an apparent breach of Covid legislation here last night and an investigation is ongoing to ensure that the organizers of this gathering are responsible for their unacceptable actions To be held accountable.
He added that the majority of the city's people "made enormously difficult sacrifices and obeyed the rules over the Christmas season".

He said that the people who attended the gathering were not just from Manchester, but "from all over the North West."
