A man has been arrested after armed police swooped on a car with three men inside in March town centre this morning.
Dramatic pictures show the large police response outside Domino’s Pizza restaurant in the Fenland town’s high street at around 11am today (June 15).
An eyewitness said one man, the driver of the small white car, was arrested and taken away in one of the police vans “very leisurely” and with “no stress”.
Andrew Stockbridge, who watched the incident unfold, said: “I had been watching for half an hour... the armed response was the last to leave.
