JD Sports burglary Southport OTS News

A major police response was issued tonight to a break in at a popular Town Centre clothing store.

An NPAS helicopter, police dogs and at least twenty officers were called to JD on Chapel Street at 11.30pm tonight (Saturday) after the store was the target of a break in attempt.

Reports of gunfire along with a break in were later proved false as people mistakenly identified fireworks in High Park as gun shots.

Staff and local security visited the store after the alarm was tripped and are currently liasing with officers.

No arrests have been made.

A full report is expected on Sunday
