A POLICE helicopter scoured Castle Gresley last night after the sound of gunshots coming from a clay pigeon event spooked nearby residents.

Derbyshire Police received two calls from the area at around 7pm about the noise.

Although one call was from a worried resident, police said that one of the calls was from the organiser of the clay pigeon shootout who was concerned that he could hear gun shots coming from outside the event.

A police spokesman said that the helicopter was sent out “as a precautionary measure”.
