A specialist negotiator is still trying to bring a peaceful end to a stand-off at a house in which a woman is being held against her will.

Police confirmed that a woman was being held at a flat in Escott Gardens, nearly 24 hours after armed officers were mobilised.

A police spokesman said: “Officers attended and established there was a man inside the property who was preventing the woman from leaving.

“A cordon is in place and a negotiator is at the scene and is in dialogue with a 20-year-old man inside the property.

“Police have spoken with the woman concerned, who at this time remains inside the property, and she is physically unharmed.”
