It seems to be mostly over. The armed blokes ran into the house and about five minutes (it seemed much longer) later they came out with a bunch of young men all with those plastic handcuff things on. As I said there's a big teaching hospital very close and therefore we get a lot of students around here. I'd assumed these young men were trainee doctors from overseas. They've all been bundled into the vans and driven off at speed. The Police have arrived now and there at least two helicopters buzzing around. It's bedlam!
There's broken glass everywhere in the street. I'm amazed that none of my widows broke.
Talk about drama! I have no idea what it was about - I'm assuming a counter terrorist operation. If it were drugs I'd imagine the police would deal with it. But these guys were very slick.
I'm looking at the online news and the local radio to fin d out more, bu tthere's nothing yet.
