The wide field "Pi of the Sky North" apparatus installed in the BOOTES-1
station at ESAt/INTA-CEDEA in Mazagon (Huelva, Spain;  )
observed field of GRB 110402A at the time of Fermi-GMB and Swift-BAT triggers.
No new source brighter than 11 mag has been identified on 10s exposures:

t_start - t0      start (UT)  end (UT)     3-sigma limit

       -6           00:12:52    00:13:02     11.0
       +7           00:13:05    00:13:15     11.0

where limit is based on the reference star magnitudo in V filter.
