Firefighters received an emergency call to Boots in the Kingsthorpe area of Northampton this morning.

Although smoke was seen pouring out of the building, fire crews weren’t required to attend the scene off Harborough Road.

It has since been confirmed that an intruder alarm was activated, causing smoke to fill the premises.

A spokesman for Northants Fire & Rescue confirmed to the Chronicle & Echo the incident had been a false alarm and fire crews didn’t need to attend.
