10:17am Monday 4th February 2013 in News
Armed police were called to reports of a group of men with shotguns near Great Notley Discovery Centre only to find it was a clay pigeon shoot.
The armed unit, supported by the police helicopter, were sent after police received a call just after 2.45pm yesterday about concerns of a group of men in a field near the Discovery Centre.
An Essex Police spokesman said: "Firearms officers attended along with the police helicopter and established the men were part of an organised clay pigeon shoot."
She added the caller's concerns were taken seriously but all was found to be in order.
