Have your say

A man is in police custody today in connection with reports of threats being made against the public by someone with a knife in a Bourne street.

Police were called to Hereward Street this morning after a number of residents were allegedly threatened at knifepoint by a man living in the area.

The street was sealed off for a short time while negotiations took place with the man whose safety raised concerns with police, but no one was hurt.

The man was eventually arrested and the street reopened at about 12 noon.
