Police Issue Statement After Asda Call-Out

Friday January 4 2013

A MAJOR police presence at the Asda store was called out due to a false report, it has emerged.

Police cars and vans cordoned off an area of land near the supermarket on Old Mill Lane on December 28 after an allegation of sexual assault was made.

Police have investigated and now say they have found the complaint to be false - and that no crime had been committed.

A spokesman said no further police action will be taken.
