Councils bans ‘tombstoning’ at Salford Quays

People caught ‘tombstoning’ in Salford Quays could face fines of £90 under new measures unveiled by the council.

Salford City Council has introduced a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) to crack down on anti-social behaviour in the area. The Order includes banning people jumping from bridges, throwing objects into the water, using bad language and urinating in public.

Deputy City Mayor, Cllr David Lancaster said: ‘We've heard complaints about people throwing all kinds of objects into the water, including wheelie bins, tampering with emergency life saving equipment, using foul language, being abusive and rowdy and using the Quays as a public toilet. Plus there are also people jumping from bridges who risk seriously injuring or even killing themselves.

‘It's not acceptable and this new order gives the police another tool to use against anyone causing a nuisance.’

The Order does not include a ban on unauthorised swimming in the Quays following a consultation with residents.
