As last night's sound system continued to boom out beats in Piccadilly Gardens, further up the road at Piccadilly Station a flash mob appeared, aimed at any Conservative Party delegates getting off trains and heading for the Manchester Conference...

They were greeted by people handing out pig sweets, David Cameron himself handing out £50 notes stating `Taken from the poor and given to the rich', a community choir singing sweet anti-Tory songs and a giant knitted banner draped from the balcony reading `Don't Stitch Us Up'.

The hour long protest was well received by both Manchester City and Newcastle United fans en route to today's match, as most agreed with the message placards held up outside a store named Big Shots... `Tories Not Welcome – Go Home'...

The big protest against the Tory Party Conference happens tomorrow (Sunday), with a huge feeder march beginning at 11am in Salford outside the Museum and Art Gallery on The Crescent, while the main march begins in Oxford Road at noon. Over 100,000 people are expected.
