Robbery gone wrong Up North.

www.thenorthernecho.co.uk...

ARMED police have surrounded a bookmaker's store in Jarrow this evening and, in the past few minutes, reports of shots fired.

Reports on social media say at least one person was taken hostage. However, it appears the hostage has been allowed out of the premises.

Police say there is still someone inside the building, on Grange Road, Jarrow and the the past couple of minutes there has been activity after reports of shots fired.

A couple of blokes have went to rob the bookies and it's went tits up. Armed response and the helicopters got their straightaway before they could get away. They've covered the windows up and took hostages. It's now a stand off situation.


They should send Gazza in with curried chicken and lager.

The Raoul Moat incident would have worked out better if they'd let Gazza in with the chicken, lager, dressing gown and fishing rods.

Couple of shots fired (probably rubber bullets) and the hostage taker is being escorted away by the coppers

They're saying he had a loaded sawn off shotgun, but it ended without injury. Hooray British Police.

Nice to see it wasn't a suicide by cop ordeal. We get a few of those around here once in a while.

I am sure American police would have talked the guy into coming out hands up before riddling him with bullets....oops..my bad, looked like he still had something in his hand....but then again...

Surely you'd go to Newcastle with the loot when you wanted to pull?

Ward 17. Need I say more.

It looks like he may have wanted it, but they weren't obliging.
