Fetch Didsbury

Hog's Head drinker turns to gun to prove point

Apparently an old fashioned fist fight isn't enough to prove you are the alpha male any more, you have to resort to pulling a gun out and firing it in a crowded pub.

I was having a meal in Cafe Rouge next door to the Hog's Head and witnessed the dozens of police and multiple ambulances arrive at the scene at around 9.30pm on Saturday night.

I have never been a fan of the Hog's Head in Didsbury mainly because of how few Didsbury residents you see in there at any time of the week and the generally aggressive attitude of the bouncers.

Thankfully nobody was killed.

"Anyone who witnessed this incident should call police on 0161 856 6153 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111"

When did Didsbury turn into a place where people carry guns?
