    He said: "There were four lads, all in full camouflage, walking through the lower end of the park, past the tennis courts.

    "They were all balaclava up.

    "It wasn't a good look.

    "A lot of people were on their phones to the police."

    Another witness said the men told him they were shooting a music video in the woods.

    The group of men were spotted at about 3pm


    He said: "They had cameras with them.

    "I spoke to them and asked if they were filming a music video or something and they just laughed and said 'Yeah'.

    "I could see five armed response vehicles and the helicopter was up for ages.

    "It was a big operation and must have cost some money to respond like that."

    Greater Manchester Police have been contacted for comment.
