Lincolnshire police called to barricaded house

Police surrounded a house in Lincolnshire after a man barricaded himself inside.

Officers were called to the disturbance in Billingborough near Sleaford and sealed off an area near High Street.

The situation ended at about 1630 BST when the man came out of the property, the Lincolnshire force said.

Witnesses said the large number of emergency vehicles meant the centre of the village was closed to traffic for about five hours.

There had been some suggestion that the man might harm himself, but he was not injured.
