Armed Police Surround Cheadle Factory: Cricketers’ Six Shooters Explode

by | 16th, March 2011

ARMED police have surrounded the Power Star in Cheadle. There have been reports of gunfire.

Says Mohammed Ijaz, 25, from inside the building:

“We’d been watching the England match and finished work so thought we may as well play cricket. We were just messing around and could hear shouting saying ‘Come out! Come out!’.

“At first we carried on as we didn’t realise it was to do with us. But when we realised it was, we headed outside and as soon as we opened the door we could see lots of armed police. It was a bit of a shock but they were just doing their job.”

That gunfire was the cricket ball smacking into the metal shutters.
