A WOMAN who was arrested in connection to a hoax threat to Golborne High School has been released with no further action to be taken against her.

On Monday, November 22 police received an online report of what is now believed to be a hoax, from an individual claiming that they were going to attend the school on Lowton Road, Golborne, in possession of a firearm.

Officers attended and it was established that there was no one with a firearm present in the area and there is no wider threat to the public.

An investigation into the incident remains ongoing, say police.
