A woman in Grimsby has been arrested after "brandishing a firearm" in the street.
Armed police were called to a suburban road in Portland Place on Saturday in response to concerned calls regarding a woman with a gun.
The area was sealed off and specialist officers, including negotiators, were deployed at the scene, as well as four ambulance teams.
The armed woman retreated inside a property off Legsby avenue and was eventually arrested.
A Humberside Police spokesperson said: “Roads around Portland Place in Grimsby are now open following the peaceful conclusion of a firearms incident that had been ongoing for a number of hours.
“A woman was arrested shortly before 4.15pm and is now in police custody. She will be interviewed in due course."
The arrested woman was placed into a waiting ambulance and checked over by paramedics, before being taken into custody.
Police said they were keeping her relatives up-to-date on her condition, but that nobody was hurt in the incident.
Two local residents told the Grimsby Telegraph that police had attended the rented two-storey property a couple of days previously following reports of a man “laid out in drunken state” in the front garden.
"Nothing much goes on down here ever," one added.
A police spokesperson said: “We would like to thank the local community for their co-operation and patience whilst we dealt with the matter and express our appreciation to all those affected this afternoon.”Reuse content
