    A man was robbed at knifepoint whilst leaving a tram stop in Oldham.

    Police are now investigating the incident, which occurred on Tuesday night (6 March) at the Hollinwood station.

    The 23-year-old victim was approached by two robbers who held up a seven to eight-inch blade and demanded money. They then took his Armani watch, iPhone and coat.

    Reports say the tram stop has been blighted by anti-social behaviour in recent months, including bricks being thrown at trams by youths.
