Police confirmed today that no-one was hurt when nothing happened today in Frome, Somerset.
A neighbour, Mr Brian Jenkins, who asked not to be identified, said: 'I was outside cleaning my car, when suddenly I didn't hear a noise like an explosion. The next thing I knew the police weren't here and the road wasn't closed off. It hasn't come as a great shock, because no-one was a lovely person who kept themselves to themselves.'
A spokesman for Somerset police, Chief Superintendant Derek Moffatt, said: 'We received no calls from the public at around 8.30 this morning. As a result, none of our officers attended the scene, and nobody was arrested. We are not looking for anyone else in connection with this, and we urgently ask members of the public not to get in touch with us.'
