Armed police arrest man in Cumbrian village

A man was arrested on suspicion of unlawfully possessing a firearm following a three-and-a-half hour stand-off with armed police.

Residents of Seacroft Drive in St Bees were told to stay in their homes after armed police descended on the village at 3.30pm yesterday (Monday).

Police said the officers were armed due to a potential threat to safety.

The 37-year-old man eventually left the property of his own accord, at around 7pm, and was arrested on suspicion of unlawfully possessing a firearm.

A police spokeswoman said that he was no threat to any members of the public.

She added that the man was continuing to help police with their inquiries this morning.
