Wiltshire Police received a number of 999 calls reporting two teenage boys with what was believed to be a weapon.

Concerned members of the public contacted the force around 3.20pm yesterday (10th March) about the Primrose Hill area of Wilton.

A spokesperson for Wiltshire Police told Spire FM 

"Officers attended the scene, and due to the nature of the reports, armed officers were also deployed."

"Two 15-year-old boys were spoken to by officers and it was determined that they had found a discarded knife and carried it home. 

"They were given suitable words of advice and the weapon has been seized and destroyed."
