The Gangs of Manchester

Andrew Davies

The Gangs of Manchester tells the story of the first modern youth tribes – the scuttlers – and their battles for supremacy on the streets of nineteenth century Manchester and Salford. Driven by pride, revenge and sheer devilment, gangs such as the Bengal Tigers, the Bungall Boys and the Meadow Lads clashed with knives and belts in seemingly endless feuds lasting three decades.
