Gunmen open fire on Manchester social services building

Dramatic footage of two gunmen opening fire on a social services building in Manchester has been captured on CCTV.

They fired handguns at the door of the Harpurhey District Office, which houses services for both adults and children, on Moston Lane.

One of the men also daubed graffiti on the door before the pair ran off towards Factory Lane, where they crossed a nearby petrol station forecourt before jumping into a white Ford Focus and driving away.

Footage of the incident, which happened at 04:20 BST on 25 April, has just been released by Greater Manchester Police.

Nobody was injured but police are appealing for information about the men.
