Facebook and to a lesser extend Twitter was alive with comments about an incident involving a man and some sort of weapon outside Asda Queensferry last night (Tuesday 25th November)  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Police have confirmed they were called to a disturbance at the store at 9.00pm.   ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“A man was arrested for affray, procession of an offensive weapon and shoplifting.” a spokesperson said. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

One person said they had been locked inside Asda for their own safety while Police dealt with the incident. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Another tweeted: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Social media went into overdrive, as it does, with rumours of a man rampaging through Asda with a gun, clearly not true. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

One ‘trusted’ source posted this update on Facebook : ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

it wasn’t a gun it was a kitchen knife and it was security who were threatened, all customers were kept away from the situation. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

We initially thought this tweet was related to the incident:  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

 Screenshot from 2014-11-26 01:03:56It turned out to be a bit ‘red herring’ as Police were tweeting about an anti social behaviour incident at an address in Aston Road they later confirmed. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
