Police have arrested three people and seized an air weapon after an incident on North Tyneside.

Officers were called to Burnside Road in Whitley Bay on Tuesday morning after what were described as "concerns about a resident".

Schools in the area were told to keep pupils indoors as uniformed officers searched a house.

A Northumbria force spokesman said two men and a woman were subsequently arrested. No-one was reported hurt.
