Armed police who stormed into a house after "reports" of a mortar gun discovered it was an Action Man toy.
The UK Daily Mail reports that Stormtrooper Police wielding submachine guns raced to the home of Ian Driscoll, 43, after he posted a new profile picture on Facebook.
Driscoll's picture showed an Action Man plastic figure and in the background was a toy mortar gun, around six inches tall.

as the excuse to invade a man's home.
The mortar gun was next to a TV remote control clearly showing its small size but the police claim that "someone" reported these evil toys to them.
Bullshit. I don't believe that for one second. The police are watching and recording our Internet pages, e-mails and phone calls.
Five officers, including two armed with submachine guns, then arrived at his home in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.
Driscoll said after showing them the offending toy the police apologised and left - but still managed to 'see the funny side'.
Driscoll said: 'I was shocked and stunned. It was just mad. Five officers turned up in unmarked police cars.
'They flashed the search warrant in my face and said it was lucky I was in so they didn't have to break my door down.
'Everyone has been laughing about it and I think it's funny. It's so stupid.
'The Action Man looked a bit like me so I decided to put it as my Facebook picture. I didn't even notice the mortar in the background.
