MERSEYSIDE Police have confirmed that Armed Officers carried out a search of part of Southport Town Centre, on 1 August 2016, after a member of the public reported seeing a man armed with what they believed was a hand gun. The passer by called:- 999, about at 4.12pm, to report that he had seen the man in Wright Street hiding what he thought was a firearm underneath his clothing, before walking off towards the Train Station. The witness passed on a detailed description of the man and patrols were deployed to the area to search for anyone matching that description. A short time later a man was detained by officers on Lord Street and searched. He was found not to be in possession of a firearm or any other weapon and, having co-operated fully, was allowed to leave. The initial report to 999 is being treated as well intentioned and Officers have updated the member of the public as to the outcome of the Police Search.
