Bowling alley in lockdown as ‘armed man takes hostages with a sawn off shotgun’

A bowling alley is in lockdown after it was stormed by a man with a sawn-off shotgun who has taken hostages.

A witness claimed the suspect had ‘two hostages and a shotgun’ during the stand-off at MFA Bowl at Bermuda Park in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, this afternoon.

Around 30 armed police officers have been spotted at the scene, with all roads around the leisure park closed off.

    Guns are banned in England. Since it’s illegal to own a gun there, the bad guy would be unable to get a gun. So this story must be fake news.

      No, if he had a gun the cure for this is more gun control. The last remaining shotguns and rifles need to be forcibly collected by a house to house search of every lower or middle class-owned property. Houses of religion will be exempt from searches because of the grievous risk to police. /sarc
