A GANG of six kicked open the front door of a house on Monday night and sprayed a woman with an "unknown substance".

The offenders approached a house on Bridge Street in Hindley just after 8.10pm before spraying the woman.

They then fled the scene.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: "Emergency services attended the scene and established the substance was not harmful.

"The woman received no injuries.

"Enquiries are ongoing."
