Following reports yesterday from East Folkestone of police cars 'flying' everywhere - I thought we'd abandoned the 'Flying Squad'- armed response officers sprung into action.
The message came through to the Hawkinge Gazette: "What the hell is going on - police cars flying everywhere - just had 4 blues 'n' twos going toward town - like a bad episode of The Bill!"
Sure it was real and not a TV drama.
The cops had been called to a report of a 'disturbance' involving a firearm.
Police cars and firearms officers descended on Harbour Way in Folkestone at 2 o'clock.
More police vehicles and ambulances were parked opposite the Leas Lift.
We understand no offences were committed, the emergency vehicles left the area and Folkestone returned to relative calm.
