UK police dealing with ‘incident’ at leisure complex, reports of gunman


British police said on Sunday they were dealing with an “ongoing incident” at a leisure park in Nuneaton, central England, telling people to avoid the area where witnesses said a gunman had taken two people hostage at a bowling alley.

The Warwickshire police in central England gave no further details on its Twitter feed and the reports from witnesses about the hostage-taking were unconfirmed.

One witness told Sky News that she had been told that the gunman was a former employee at the bowling alley at the complex, which includes a cinema, a gym and several restaurants. This could not be immediately confirmed.

Pictures on Twitter showed armed police at the complex and local media reported that roads leading to it had been closed off. Some people were being allowed to leave the complex, another witness told Sky News.

The Coventry Telegraph newspaper said its reporter had seen an air ambulance land at the scene to join three other ambulances.
