Police update on Bottoms Reservoir 'campsite'

Three young men have been arrested for various offences after a moped and camping equipment were left near Bottoms Reservoir.

A member of the public contacted the Chronicle this morning (Friday) and sent these photos of tents, airbeds, rubbish and even a moped that were left in the wooded area near the reservoir in Tintwistle. We contacted local police and park rangers immediately. 

Glossop Police's Safer Neighbourhood Team were also contacted by concerned members of the public. 

In a Facebook post this afternoon, officers confirmed that three young men have been arrested for public order, drugs offences, assault and breach of Covid-19 restrictions in connection with the incident.
