    Police responded to a report of "concern for the welfare of a man" in Dukinfield, Greater Manchester at about 12:45 p.m. on 16 January, the Daily Mail reported citing law enforcement.

    A suspect was detained after law enforcement promptly arrived at the scene where a man was claiming to possess an explosive device, according to the Daily Mail. 

    Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said on Twitter that they had arrested a man on "suspicion of making a malicious communication". 

    Reports say police have put a cordon in place on Birch Lane and are advising people in the neighbourhood to stay at home and lock their doors. Bomb disposal officers have reportedly arrived to assess a suspicious package at the scene.
