A MAN was injured with a machete in mysterious circumstances in Wigan.

Officers were called to Waterside Drive, near Wigan Pier, shortly after 7am on Sunday following reports someone was injured by machete.

Police cordoned off the area, but they were unable to establish what had happened as the victim would not speak with officers and there were no witnesses.

He only sustained minor injuries, which were dealt with at Wigan Infirmary.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: “Someone ended up with minor cuts as a result of a machete but the people involved have been very unco-operative. We don’t know how it happened or why. No-one is making any complaints or talking to the police.

“The area was cordoned off following a report a person was in possession of a machete.”
