Sky News are reporting that Armed Police have flood lit and cordoned off a road in Sutton st. James west of Kings Lynn, as a siege continues with a man who injured an officer in a firearm incident yesterday.

The lights were set up on a oad outside the Lincolnshire village. The standoff happened on Tuesday afternoon on the main road that goes straight through the village.  Local residents have been told not to leave their homes untill further notice, they are urging people with plans to travel to the area, to stay away untill the incident has been dealt with, and the area is completely safe again. It is still unclear how or why the incident happened,  but police have confirmed the officer involved has suffered facial injuries after a firearm was discharged “by a member of the public”. SKY NEWS have named the man as Barry Horspool, and claims he is a 60 yea old local resident, known well locally.
