Cleveland Police was forced to make comment today over the suggestion of an ongoing firearms incident which is believed to have occurred in Georgetown.

Incidents on Teesside falsely reported that there was a firearms incident happening involving police dogs posting “Report of Heavy Police Present ARUNDEL ROAD, Grangetown. Armed police + Dogs searching gardens.”

The post had created lots of speculation online and even caused people to be fearful of being in Grangetown, lots of comments were quickly removed.

Police have today quickly reacted to the posts commenting on Twitter to reassure fearful residents that there was no such incident happening.
