Bricks were thrown at police officers after they swiftly responded to a report of concerns for a man’s safety in Gedling.

Police were called to Lymn Avenue just before 11.45pm yesterday (Friday 2 April 2021).

After about four hours of careful negotiations, officers managed to bring the incident to a safe conclusion and a 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of affray. He remains in custody.
