Police Issue Warning About Uppermill Quarry

Our local police officers have warned youths not to hang around Ladcastle Quarry at Uppermill.

According to the Saddleworth and Lees police team, large groups of youngsters have been gathering there during some recent evenings.

In a statement, the police said: “Local youths have been congregating in the quarry during evening hours and the police want to advertise how dangerous this is.”

It went on: “The police will be regularly patrolling this location and any youths found there will be returned home. Messages have also been sent out via local schools. The police want youths to be able to enjoy themselves but remain safe at the same time.”

In other recent updates from our local officers, a woman was arrested on suspicion of drink driving in Denshaw on Sunday morning, following a call from a member of the public.

And in Springhead last week, two separate vehicles had locked ladders stolen from their roofs. Police have urged tradespeople to make doubly sure their belongings are as secure as possible.

To ring the Saddleworth and Lees police team directly call the Uppermill office on 0161 856 4524. The best number to use for out-of-hours calls is 0161 872 5050, but in an emergency, always dial 999.

You can get up-to-date information from our local officers from their website here, and their Twitter feed here.

    I don’t think it’s a hot spot for youths up there. Definitely needs to be watched but not for youths.
