SEVERAL people have been seriously injured in a shooting in Manchester after a popular street festival.

TEN people have been shot in the English city of Manchester after a Caribbean dance party, with some in a serious condition.

The shooting, which took place at Moss Side, in Manchester’s southern suburbs, at 2.30am Sunday local time (11.30am AEST) is not being treated as terror related.

It came at an after-party several hours after a street party, the Caribbean Carnival, and thousands of people were still in the streets.

Chaotic video apparently shot in the aftermath of the shooting and posted on Twitter by an account called UK Rap shows police trying to help a large group of people on a darkened street.

Ten people are in hospital.

Moss Side is infamous as the home turf of several violent gangs which terrorised the streets from the 1970s through until the late 2000s, as they battled each other for control of the drugs trade.

Detective Superintendent Debbie Dooley said extra police had been sent to the area after the shooting in Claremont St.

“We currently have a number of people in hospital all being treated for different injuries but thankfully most do not appear to be life-threatening at this time,’’ she said.

“Officers are trying to establish exactly where this incident took place and who is responsible for such a dangerous attack.

“The Caribbean Carnival had been taking place earlier that day but had finished several hours prior to this incident occurring, which is why there were still a lot of people in the area.

“Those living or visiting the area will understandably be concerned by this incident and we will have extra officers patrolling the area throughout the morning and into the coming days.”

As day broke, police were at the scene searching for forensic evidence, reviewing CCTV, and taking witnesses statements.

More to come.
