20 years after its riots, Oldham is more than ready to move on
We spoke to the new council leader and visited Glodwick, where the trouble began
Good morning members. To mark the 20th anniversary of the Oldham riots, I spoke to the borough’s brand new council leader Arooj Shah, and Dani went to the neighbourhood which saw the most serious violence to take some photos and speak to local people.
The message from both Shah and Oldhamers we met on the ground? 20 years is a long time, and they want to move on.
