A MAN was arrested after reportedly jumping off a bridge in the town centre.

Officers were called on Tuesday at 7.15pm to Bridge Foot over concerns for the welfare of a man.

But on arrival the officers found that the man was uninjured, and he had jumped off the bridge to show off to his friends.

The 23-year-old man was then arrested on suspicion of breaching a court order in Greater Manchester.

He was taken to hospital as a precaution to be checked over.

He has since been released into the custody of Greater Manchester Police.
