A shop in Manchester’s gay village has had its windows smashed for a third time in just over a month, which now has sparked safety fears within the LGBTQ+ community. Greater Manchester Police (GMP) are working to identify the two masked people on motorbikes behind the attack on the adult shop in Sackville Street, CloneZone. According to the police, the two individuals were seen on CCTV entering the street and one jumped off of their bike and smashed the windows of the shop repeatedly. Not long after, the pair soon fled in the direction of London Road. This act of vandalism occurred during the day and is the third time the shop has been hit in the last six weeks. The attack on the shop, which sells sex toys and leather has been called “mindless acts of vandalism” by the police.
