Armed police were called to Cambridge city centre on Sunday afternoon, after getting reports of a man carrying a Samurai sword - but it actually turned out to be a novelty umbrella!
A police spokesperson said, "We were called on Sunday (July 19) at about 12pm by a member of the public reporting that a ‘machete or samurai sword’ could be seen in a man’s rucksack on Market Street, Cambridge.
"Officers attended the scene. The item was an umbrella with a samurai sword-type handle. Words of advice were given the man."
