A man is in custody this afternoon after being arrested following reports of a gun being brandished.

“Officers, including firearms units, attended the scene. The two men are thought to be known to each other and there was no danger to the wider community.

“A 28-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of possession of an imitation firearm and remains in police custody.”
