Hoax call sees armed police called to house in Lichfield

Armed police were called to a house in Lichfield after a hoax call.

Officers went to an address in Stychbrook Gardens yesterday morning (February 10) after reports a man was being threatened with a gun.

A Staffordshire Police spokesperson said: “As a result of the information received armed officers were deployed to the scene.

“However, our inquiries quickly established this was a hoax call.

“Efforts are being made to establish the identity of, and trace, the hoax caller.”
