K. Wiersema (University of Leicester) reports on behalf of the Oadby 
Transients Team:

We observed the field of possible GRB 150407A (Palmer et al. GCN 17682) using the
0.5m telescope of the observatory of the University of Leicester, at Oadby (UK).
In a series of V band exposures, with midpoint 21.32 UT on 7 April 2015 (~0.88 days
after burst, GCN 17682), we find no source brighter than the DSS limit, in or near the 
BAT error circle (GCN 17682).
