Armed police who stormed to a house after reports of a mortar gun discovered it was an Action Man toy.
Police wielding submachine guns raced to the home of Ian Driscoll, 43, after he posted a new profile picture on Facebook.
Mr Driscoll’s picture showed an Action Man plastic figure and in the background was a toy mortar gun, around six inches tall.
The mortar gun was next to a TV remote control clearly showing its small size but someone who saw it contacted police.
