It seems there was a hoax bomb alert in Brownhills this afternoon. Contrary to rumour, nobody is hurt and the incident wasn’t caused by a suicide.
As soon as I get any information, I’ll share it.
Suggestions that police were looking for a man interfering with a miner are unconfirmed ;0)
Enquiries on social media with Walsall and Brownhills beat police revealed the following:
Thanks to PCSO Hateley for the help, there. Most appreciated.
Can I just put out a request to those reading this? Before the truth had even got it’s y-fronts on, the rumour was rocketing around Brownhills that someone had hung themselves from the Miner. Before repeating utterly unfeasible rubbish like that, can we please stop and think? It saves an awful lot of heartache.
Superintendent Keith Fraser of Walsall Police tweeted the following:
Thanks to Superintendent Fraser for his help. Cheers.
