Abstract Press hysteria and public panic gripped 1890s Salford as it erupted into postcode violence. Rival gangs of youths, known as scuttlers, clashed in pitched street battles. Magistrate Joseph Makinson attempted to stamp out the epidemic of gang warfare by giving the scuttlers a taste of their own medicine. More than a century later, descendants of the rival gang leaders and descendants of the judge who tried to stop them tell their family stories, and ask whether violence is still part of life in working-class Salford.
