Armed police were seen detaining men at gunpoint on a roundabout in Swindon this evening.
Officers swarmed the junction near to the Coate Water Country Park entrance as they responded to the incident – thought to have involved weapons – at around 5pm.
At least two men could be seen lying on the floor with firearms pointed at them as the road roundabout was partly closed off by local police officers.
A drugs dog was used to search a silver taxi involved in the incident, but the vehicle and the driver were free to leave the scene a short time later.
The exact nature of the incident is unknown; we’ve approached Wiltshire Police for comment.
