Gunfire probe
by Natasha Young

AN investigation is underway after a gun was fired in Banks at the weekend.

Lancashire police officers were called to Westerdale Drive at around 8.50pm on Sunday evening (February 27), after a resident reported hearing the sound of a gun shot.

On arrival they found a rear window of a house had been shattered but nobody was injured.

Following the incident a forensic examination was carried out for clues.

Shots were previously fired at a house in the same area last November.

If anybody witnessed anything suspicious in the area on Sunday evening, or has any information about this incident they are asked to contact police on 08451 25 35 45 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
