Officers were told a shooting took place at the Pipe Major public house in Yewtree Avenue, near Dagenham East tube station, yesterday evening.

But police were not called to any such incident and “have not located any injured party”, a spokesman said.

A crime scene has been set up while officers investigate.

The venue remains open with eyewitness reports suggesting red police tape has been put up around the beer garden area.
