No argy bargy at Arllngton – just training

If you see Police with firearms and hear loud bangs at the old Arlington Apartments on Hopper Street today, tomorrow and Wednesday, do not worry.

Police are conducting a training exercise, with an increased police presence in the area between the hours of 10.00am and 3.00pm.

Staff will be carrying firearms, and the public may hear loud bangs coming from the venue, but Police reassure those in the area that there is no cause for concern.
