A gunman was arrested after police ended a four-hour siege at a bowling alley in Nuneaton.

Officers were called to MFA Bowl in Bermuda Park at around 14:30 BST on Sunday after reports a man with a shotgun had taken two hostages.

According to one witness, Chris Turner, who told the BBC he was walking past the front entrance to the bowling alley when the man "ran up to the door".

He had "a gun in his hand" and told him to "get out of the area", he said.

Mr Turner said the man shouted at a crowd of people outside to leave, saying: "I've already told you once."

A 53-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of making threats to kill after police stormed the building at about 18:30 BST.
