Armed police officers swarmed Central Six shopping centre in Coventry last night.

The retail park was closed off as police responded to reports of a suspicious vehicle in nearby Station Square, outside Coventry Railway Station.

A number of surrounding roads were also closed and buildings evacuated.

Several shoppers at Central Six reported seeing officers with guns at around 8pm, as well as a number of police cars and vans, and unmarked vehicles.
