Police raid Manchester hotel after traffic incident involving child

Armed police in the United Kingdom have stormed a Manchester hotel after a young boy was killed in a "traffic collision".

Paramedics and police rushed to the incident, but sadly the little boy died at the scene.

Armed police attended the event because they were in the area at the time, police said.

Witnesses said there was a heavy police presence with around 15 police cars, some unmarked, and a number of ambulances and rapid response vehicles at the scene.

At least three ambulances were also pictured outside the building on Trafford Road.

Witnesses at the Ibis Hotel in Salford Quays near Manchester reported hearing "blood-curdling screams" after the incident, which police are saying was a "tragic accident".

Police raided a hotel late Thursday in the UK's northern city of Salford in the Greater Manchester county, local media reported. "Enquiries on-going", the police tweeted.

Officers were reportedly seen guarding the doors to the hotel.

"A woman was shouting hysterically and a children were screaming and crying".

In addition to this, she said police detained "hundreds and hundreds and hundreds" of radicalized youth who were promoting terrorist ideas or mulling an attack, adding that the problem of "homegrown" terrorists is a growing issue of concern to police.
