Locals in Hulme have reacted with concern about the sudden closure of The Junction Hotel, one of the last remaining traditional pubs in an area that used to have one on every corner. Is reported that noise complaints about the long running jam nights made by new arrivals to the area curtailed those nights and severely hit trade.

More worryingly is the news that owners Hydes Brewery have wasted no time in selling off the pub to a property developer.
