Military and police were on the scene to remove a van in the village.

Police and military personnel have descended on Winterslow this afternoon. 

A local resident told Spire FM:

"I've been told they are investigating a situation a few doors from me and may be bringing in a low loader shortly to remove something."

The emergency services were seen taking a 'Ashley Wood' van away from the Livery Road area close to Western Lane.
