A massive charity sale in Manchester was reportedly shut down after customers started looting.

Police were called in after people in the Corn Exchange building, which was previously called the Triangle, allegedly started removing items without paying.

‘Patrols have responded to reports of people “looting” in the Corn Exchange,’ Greater Manchester Police wrote on Twitter.

Hundreds of customers had been queuing before the doors opened at 9am this morning and were hoping to grab bargains that included 50 inch TVs.

Many items at the sale, which was taking place because the building is being redeveloped, were available for just £10.

A spokesman for the Corn Exchange confirmed the sale was abandoned due to disputes between customers.

No arrests were made.
