Police quizzing woman arrested following armed stand-off in Portland Place
Police are today questioning a woman arrested following a stand-off with armed police yesterday.
The four-hour drama unfolded in Portland Place, off Legsby Avenue, from around 1pm after reports that a firearm was seen being brandished in the street.
As reported, a large police and medical presence attended the scene as trained police negotiators worked to persuade the woman, who was in a house, to give herself up.
The road was closed off for around four hours before the woman was arrested at 4.15pm.
Residents in the neighbourhood were told to avoid the area at all cost by police.
