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.

Emergency services were called to the scene late yesterday afternoon and have been there ever since, with armed officers and police dogs as back-up.
