ARMED police were called to reports of a gang with a knife in Selby.

North Yorkshire Police said they were called to Barlby Road, close to the swing bridge, at about 8.30pm on Thursday, August 9, "after a passing member of the public reported a suspicious group of men with what appeared to be a knife".

A spokeswoman said: "On police arrival, the men had left the area. No further complaints have been received from members of the public and officers believe that the wider community were not at risk."
