Armed Response Officers were dispatched in Plymouth this morning to reports of a man with a rifle in a bag.

On arrival, the weapon proved to be much less threatening...a lightsaber.

When police located the man they found only Star Wars memorabilia in his bag.

They called it the job of the day - though failed to confirm whether the man was on the light or the dark side of the Force.
