A police helicopter was scrambled after reports of a break-in at a school.

The chopper was seen above Morecambe on Friday night at around 11pm.

Lancashire Police received a report that men had been seen in the grounds of Morecambe Bay Primary School and that a window had been smashed.

But a police spokeswoman said it was thought to have been a hoax call as officers found no damage.
