At around 10.42am today (22 November 2021), police were called to reports that an individual was making threats to Golborne High School, Golborne, claiming they were in possession of a firearm. Chief Inspector Liz Sanderson, of GMPs Wigan Division, said: "Armed officers have been deployed to the scene and the school has been locked down as a precaution.
"The threats were made over the internet and no-one has approached the area with a firearm.
"I'd like to reassure the public that officers will remain at the scene while we investigate."
