Man arrested after Flint standoff


A man has been arrested after a five-hour stand off with armed police in Flint.

Officers were called to a house in Maes Alaw at just after 7.10am on Friday morning, after a man was reportedly behaving in an aggressive and threatening manner.

The 25 year-old was finally arrested at around 12.20pm on suspicion of threatening to kill and affray – no one was injured.

The standoff led to nearby St Mary’s Catholic primary school being closed for the day as a precaution while some residents were evacuated.

Ffordd Llewellyn and Albert Avenue were also closed to traffic until shortly after the incident while staff at St Richard Gwyn High School were kept updated about the situation.

Chief Inspector Simon Barrasford from North Wales Police said: ”We appreciate that this incident has caused significant disruption in the area. It has now concluded safely and no one has been hurt.”
