Armed police in Berkhamsted

Armed police have been in Berkhamsted this afternoon, with two men arrested.

Police were called at 3pm today to report that a man had allegedly been seen with a gun in a vehicle in the Boxmoor area of Hemel Hempstead.

Officers from the Beds, Cambs and Herts Armed Policing Unit immediately attended and carried out a thorough search of the area but no suspects were located.

Further enquiries throughout the afternoon resulted in the vehicle being traced to the Berkhamsted area.

At 5pm a white BMW was stopped on the High Street, near to the George and Dragon pub.

Mix96 had reports that people in the pub were held there during the incident.

The two male occupants have been detained and arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

They have been transported to custody.

Officers conducted an initial search of the vehicle at the scene before leaving the area, so the road is now clear.

Officers said they wanted to thank the public for their patience while they dealt with the incident.
