GMP hope for parade success

Story updated 29/5/11

Greater Manchester Police is urging United fans to make the club's championship parade on Monday 30 May a memorable occasion.

Thousands of fans are expected to line the streets from Manchester city centre to Stretford to celebrate the Reds' record-breaking 19th title and police officers are hoping fans enjoy themselves in a responsible manner as the team show off the trophy on an open top bus.

Assistant Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said: "This is a time for Manchester United fans to celebrate their win and I would like to congratulate them on their club's success.

"I would remind supporters to take note of the on-street alcohol ban restricting drinking alcohol in public places. The parade will be attended by a lot of families and I would urge all those attending to enjoy the unique atmosphere but behave in a responsible way.

"We did all this just a week ago with Manchester City and it was a fantastic success - I hope the United fans do their club just as proud."

Fans will be able to pay tribute to Sir Alex’s men on a 4.5-mile alcohol-free route that is expected
