A man has been arrested following a seven-hour stand-off with armed police at a Cambridge home.

The siege began at Ellison Close on Monday morning when police tried to arrest a man on suspicion of burglary.

Cambridgeshire Police said he made threats to harm himself or anybody who tried to enter the house.

Officers confirmed the siege had reached a "peaceful conclusion" at about 18:00 GMT and the man was taken in for questioning.
