The Manchester branch of the comic store chain Forbidden Planet is currently being attacked by rioting youth in Manchester’s city centre. Here’s a shot of the store earlier this evening…
UPDATE: The shutters are finally down…
Current tweets include;
Chloe Jones: Not forbidden planet that’s my favourite shop :'( I hate the pricks even more now!
Rosalyn Cooper: For the love of God, not SCI-FI MEMORABILIA! What depths will they plummet to next!
Racco :-( someone save the comics & toys!
Joe Marley: Forbidden Planet in Manchester attacked. What if they take the figures out of the original packaging :'(
LeeLee: Lauren – They got manchester’s forbidden planet? THEY CAN TAKE OUR MEMORABILLIA, BUT THEY CAN NEVER TAKE OUR GEEKDOM! *braveheart moment*
Here’s some video of the scene on Oldham Street, a few shops down.
