The police and fire services were called to Aylesbury United’s old football ground yesterday afternoon (Sunday) after reports that a man was on the roof of one of the stands.

One fire crew attended the incident at around 2.30pm which proved to be a false alarm.

A fire service spokesman said: “It was a false alarm with good intent.

“If you’re ever in doubt, call 999.”

A police spokesman said they ‘attended and searched the area and it was established that there was no one in the vicinity and no one injured.’
