A woman who lives nearby on Chapel Street, Tingley, said: “At about 6.30pm, we heard the police helicopter just circling. We assumed something was going on in the field, but this morning when I ran down Thorpe Lane I saw it all taped off (Dunningley Lane).
“I go down there regularly with the dog and nobody bothers us, but it’s not very nice to see, because it’s quite close to home.
“I hope there are no repercussions because you never know, do you?”
