Inspector Andrew Blizzard from Cheshire Police said “I would like to reassure local residents that there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding this incident and there is no risk to the public, although residents are advised that they may hear a large noise whilst this is carried out.

“It will be carried out in a safe location off Browns Lane, Wilmslow, and as a precautionary measure a 200 metre cordon will be in place.”
