Rabbit hunters spark Devizes gun alert
The Wiltshire police helicopter was scrambled on Sunday evening after shots were heard in the Horton area near Devizes.
Police officers were called to the area at around 6.40pm after local people reported hearing the sound of gunfire.
The helicopter was sent up from the air support unit at police headquarters a mile and a half away and soon located the gunmen.
But, as officers on the ground soon found out, it was a false alarm as the men were shooting rabbits with the permission of the landowner.
