A MANHUNT has been launched after a teenager was raped in an alleyway near Wigan town centre.

Detectives received a report that the 17-year-old girl had been sexually assaulted in a passageway between two rows of terraced houses in Bedford Street, off Whelley, in the early hours of Friday morning.

An investigation by Greater Manchester Police’s Serious Sexual Offences Unit has begun.

However, the traumatised girl is yet to be formally interviewed by specially trained officers.

Inquiries are ongoing and detectives are keen to trace two men.
