Breaking News: Hostage Situation.


We have received 'unconfirmed' reports that a man is holding a male and a female hostage at a property in Poole Close.

Armed police are at the scene and this has been an ongoing situation since about 3am.

There is also now a fire appliance and crew on site.

Police and Balfour Beatty have cordoned off Belmont Road (A465) between Walnut Tree Avenue and Asda and motorists are being diverted to the Ross Road (A49)

There is no risk to the wider public. Police have advised the public to avoid the area.

Police Statement:


"We were called at 3.21am this morning following concerns for a man's welfare. Specialist officers are on scene but there's no risk to the wider public at this time and the incident is contained to a single property. Please avoid the area where possible."
