Armed police were called to Kettlethorpe after a resident reported hearing gunshots.
Officers were sent to Kettlethorpe Road just after 6pm last night (Wednesday) but found the ‘shots’ were noises made by workmen nearby.
A police spokeswoman said: “There was some renovation work going on nearby and it sounded like gunshots. Someone made the call with good intent. Armed officers were deployed to the scene because of the nature of the call but it was all a misunderstanding.”
