ARMED police raced to deal with reports of someone holding two swords — only to find it was a man dressed as a pirate.
They were called to the Bramley Mini Market at 6.15pm yesterday.
But all the police found was a man dressed as a pirate in possession of two plastic swords.
Chief Insp Rebecca Chapman said: “Any reports of this nature are always taken extremely seriously and the appropriate action will be taken to ensure our communities are kept safe.
“Our number one priority is the safety of everyone in South Yorkshire and I would like to offer my reassurance that we will always work to achieve this.”
