We witnessed it, police took half hour to arrive, there were no fire arms teams and not even a marked police car.

I saw what EvieA saw while i was walking my two dogs so i don't no why your providing false news Cara?

Cara is absolutely correct, I also live at the shops called 999 spent 7 minutes on the phone to them, they didn’t know where kingsmoor road or pollard hatch , even providing a postcode of the address 20 mins later they turned up, have cctv of the whole thing police haven’t asked for it even though I told them I have it, didn't see any armed police on scene just 2 unmarked cars. Not false news from Cara at all, also it was nothing to do with the atm as they was running up and down the street screaming and shouting before kicking the shutters

Wow it amazing how Andrew is behaving on here telling a women to use there really name , if there was an arm response unit called because people were trying to break into the atm at the shops it sounds pretty serious why would somebody ask them to use there real name these sound like serious thugs we should not be attacking people on social media

So Andrew has become Drew and Cara is now C. David Smith is telling people to put their real names on social media and Bob is being quite sensible in saying not to just in case the wrong kind of people turn up at her house. John saw everything and men were running up and down bashing shutters with hammers. Lisa and Evie B both saw the same thing as one was walking a dog and one lives next door. WOW, are you sure you are not all in this together and set this up as it was a boring Sunday. It does sound very much like you all know each other regardless of the 'part' names. You should get together and write a script for a Whodunnit for the Playhouse 😅.

I just can’t believe someone reported gun shots, what an imbecile causing panic for no reason. There was no noise even resembling hun shots 🤷🏼‍♀️
