It follows a two-hour armed stand-off in Stratton on Wednesday night. Police were called at around 7.30pm to Darling Close, Lower Stratton, to reports of shots being fired.

Drinkers at the Dockle Farmhouse, a Wetherspoons pub, were locked inside the boozer for their own safety, while those at nearby New Inn were unable to access the pub's garden.
