A man has been arrested following a six-hour stand-off with armed police at a flat in Arbroath.
Dozens of emergency responders, including ambulance and fire personnel, rushed to Keptie Street in the town on Sunday afternoon following reports of concern for a man within the property.
Around a dozen police cars were dispatched as part of the response, including officers with weapons.
The street was cordoned off and neighbours kept indoors for almost six hours while negotiators attempted to convince the man to leave the flat.
The 28-year-old eventually emerged from the property at around 6.30pm where he was arrested in connection with the incident.
Inspector Grant McGaughay said there was no threat to the wider public and a report will now be sent to the procurator fiscal.
He added: “Around 12.40pm on Sunday, November 20, police were called to a report of concern for a man within a flat in Keptie Street, Arbroath.
“Officers and negotiators attended. Around 6.30pm, the 28-year-old came out of the flat and he has been arrested in connection with this incident.
“There was no threat to the wider public during this incident. No one was injured.
“A report will be forwarded to the procurator fiscal.”
