False alarm at Waterlooville Halifax

Have your say

THE opening of a bank was delayed while police checked to see if it had been burgled.

Officers were alerted to Halifax, in London Road, Waterlooville, at 9am yesterday after the alarm went off.

Staff were locked out while the manager joined police in making sure nothing had been stolen in a break-in.

But it quickly became clear the alarm had gone off by accident.

A spokesman for Halifax said the incident was over quickly.
