Police confirm Greenfield firearm incident was false alarm

Police have today told Saddleworth News that they have received new information over the report of a man seen with a firearm near to Greenfield Primary School on Tuesday afternoon.

After further enquiries they have now ascertained that the man was in fact a carpet fitter going about his normal business, and was mistakenly believed to have been carrying a firearm.

The school are keen to ensure that all parents are now aware of this fact.

Police are taking no further action and say the initial report was made to them in good faith.
