A major search has taken place overnight after reports of 'armed men' being seen near Bulford Military Camp in Wiltshire.

Police say that the search is still ongoing but that nobody has been traced and there have been no suspicious incidents since the initial phone call.

The military camp and the surrounding areas have been fully secured.

The incident comes just a day after the attempted kidnapping of a serviceman at RAF Marham.
