Photos: Crowds watch Burnley siege unfold

Police and ambulance crews are currently on stand-by as the second Burnley siege in just a week continues.

Crowds have gathered in the Hebrew Road area as the drama is unfolding at a flat in Escott Gardens where a man is reported to be holding a woman against her will.
