Police investigate reports of man with a firearm near local primary school

Reporter: Stuart Littleford

Police were called to reports of a man with a firearm near a Saddleworth primary school yesterday afternoon.

Shortly before 2pm, police received a report that a man was sat in a car on Shaw Street in Greenfield, near to Greenfield Primary School, and that he had a firearm.

Police attended and after investigating, found no evidence of a man with a firearm.

Police have told us that no crimes have been submitted.

Head teacher, Mike Wood, told Saddleworth News: “Once we were told of this incident we immediately contacted the police who sent out officers to investigate. They found no evidence of any crime.

“To reassure parents, pupils and staff two PCSOs attended the school and we also sent out a letter and text to parents and carers to let them know what had been reported to us. The safety of pupils and staff is always our top priority.”

Greater Manchester Police have asked that anyone with concerns or information should call them on 101.
