BIZARRE reports of 50 people with suitcases walking to a water reservoir remain a mystery.

Police officers were called to reports of a suitcase-carrying contingent at Ardingly Reservoir near Balcombe on Thursday.

But after a search nobody carrying a suitcase was found at the popular fishing spot.

“An area search was carried out and the team could not locate anyone with suitcases,” said Inspector Darren Taylor on Twitter yesterday.

“Most bizarre.”
