A man in his 30s has been detained in Haverhill after police spent nearly four hours at an address in the town.

Officers were first at the scene in Pleasant Close, near Cambridge Way, at about 11.26am on Thursday March 12 to execute a warrant for arrest.

At least six police cars arrived at the scene and blocked the road with vehicles when they entered the property.

However, the man police sought to arrest refused to leave the property.

After more than four hours of negotiation, at about 3.15pm, police detained the man, who is aged in his 30s.

He has been taken to Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge.

Police said the man was not injured in the process of carrying out the warrant or his detention.

Pleasant Close has now been reopened.
