Market Harborough house sealed off by armed police

Armed officers sealed off a house in Leicestershire as a precaution while trying to trace someone, police said.

A number of officers were deployed to the property on Nithsdale Avenue in Market Harborough on Monday afternoon.

The force said this was in response to concerns about a man believed to be inside the house, but it has not released further details.

The cordon was lifted later that night when the man was traced to a different location.

Police thanked residents for their understanding during the operation.
