Hamilton police have dispelled rumours of a murder in the city's west.
Social media has been buzzing with rumours of a murder on Grandview Dr, in Nawton, with one community paper reporting that one person was dead and a suspect in custody.
But a police spokesman said there had been no loss of life at the house, which has been surrounded by a police cordon since this morning, nor had there been anyone seriously injured.
He said given the type of incident it was, they were prevented from commenting any further on what had occurred.
However, it was the type of incident that police dealt with nearly every day, he said.
