Artist's impression of today's armed siege

Lincolnshire - The Lincolnshire village is in emergency lockdown following reports of an armed siege and shots being fired at a police patrol car.

"We could have another crazed Raoul Moat scenario on our hands," local cabbie Norbert Speeny tweeted this afternoon as a police containment field was set up around the village.

A bulletin issued at 5pm said a blockade of key access points included the junctions of Chapelgate and Broadgate, Jarvis Gate and Chapelgate, Bells Grove and Chapelgate, Baulkins Drove and Broadgate and Garner's Garage and Chapelgate.

Police choppers are also circling above as an armed response unit moved into strategic positions around a residential property containing the un-named suspect.

Earlier this morning reports from nearby Old Fen Dyke said a 'nutter' with a shooter had been spotted looting metal from a nearby war memorial at the Sutton St James parish church.

The area lies some 25 miles west of Sandringham House where the remains of a young East European girl were found in the New Year in the royal estate's pheasant shooting range.

There is no connection, of course.
