Reports of gunshots being fired in Epworth town centre turned out to be an American Independence Day fireworks display.

Loud bangs were heard shortly before midnight last Thursday on the High Street and police activity reported with patrol cars reportedly called to the scene.

But a spokesman for Humberside Police said that the explosions were from fireworks which in turn set off a burglar alarm, prompting a police response.
