Nuneaton hostage incident: Suspect injured but hostages released unharmed  

22 Oct

Witness Sarah Fleming said a police officer confirmed to her that an armed man was holding hostages at MFA Bowl.

She told Sky News: “We got notification that someone had a shotgun inside the bowling alley.

“We were inside Frankie and Benny’s and obviously we went on lockdown, no-one was allowed in or out.

“Then we had notification from the police that he actually had hostages.

“Everyone has been a bit up in the air, don’t know what’s going on and obviously there is a lot of children in here as well which has been quite an experience for them.

“So everyone is a little bit scared at the minute.”

The restaurant was put on lockdown after a manager went to the nearby cinema, where staff confirmed the situation, she added.

Nuneaton MP Marcus Jones told Sky News: “It is a situation where I think we need to let the police do their job and I think this is an extremely concerning situation.
