Police helicopters in Neston due to incident at local shop

Published: 28th April 2011 12:46

Armed police called out to incident in Neston.

An incident took place at a local shop, believed to be Drakes Stores in Drake Road, which required the intervention of the police, resulting in armed officers surrounding two addresses in Frobisher Road.  Although firearms were involved, no shots were fired.  A man had claimed that he had been attacked in the shop and that his assailant was armed with a gun. He sustained injuries to his face.

Six people were arrested, four men and two women, following a search involving a large number of police officers as well as the in-air support.

A spokesperson for Cheshire police last night said: "Police inquiries are ongoing into the incident, focusing on two addresses in Frobisher Road which police are currently in attendance at.

"In view of the allegation that a gun was seen, police presence in the area includes officers with the capacity to be armed. Residents were advised there is no threat to the public at large."
