Police blocked off the road and cordoned off an area around the Ladbrokes shop, while officers with shields were looking at a property across from the Co-op where a man was throwing things at them, according to eye witnesses.

The male was eventually talked out of the property by police and arrested under suspicion of assault and criminal damage.

Investigations into the incident are still ongoing.
