Armed response to students' film project

Armed police officers were called to the underground car park at The Shires centre in Trowbridge this afternoon, after members of the public reported seeing a group of youths with guns.

Two police cars containing armed response officers arrived at the scene at 1.25pm, only to discover a group of college students filming with replica guns.

A police spokesman said: "A member of the public thought they saw someone with a gun and called it in.

"The group have been given words of advice about doing it in a public area."
