WORRIES about a person taking pictures of parents and children near a primary school turned out to be false.

A person was spotted taking the pictures in Watt Street and Pendle Street East in Sabden near St Mary’s RC Primary School.

After investigating reports, the police discovered it was a local councillor taking pictures of the traffic to highlight concern with a recent planning application.

Plans to build 14 homes in Pendle Street East, which are opposed by the parish council, will be discussed by Ribble Valley Borough Council.
