Council officers were forced to stop flood recovery work in Hattersley after having missiles thrown at them by a group of yobs.

The Tameside Council Highways operatives were clearing flood water from Underwood Road on Tuesday evening.

But five men began to hurl stones at them and the vehicle they were using to pump the water away with.

Greater Manchester Police were called to the scene, but the hooligans fled before they arrived.

The men are all believed to be aged in their twenties and were dressed in black clothing.

Tameside Highways were forced to halt the vital flood clearing work and pleaded with residents on social media to respect flood recovery operatives.
