‘Gun shots’ caller hoax

Macclesfield Express - - JONES RESIGNATION -

PO­LICE are in­ves­ti­gat­ing af­ter a hoax caller told them they heard gun shots and a man had been se­ri­ously in­jured. The caller rang at around 7.20pm on Mon­day, and re­ported that a man was in­jured and shots had been heard on War­wick Close in Mac- cles­field, but there was no trace of a ca­su­alty.

Chief In­spec­tor Rob Dick­in­son said: “A lot of re­sources have to be called on when such in­ci­dents are re­ported. This time wast­ing is be­ing treated ex­tremely se­ri­ously.”
