    Police have been called to reports of an armed man in a house. Officers were called to Heath Road in Stockport next to Cale Green Park shortly after 7pm this evening. A helicopter is currently overhead and ‘lots’ of officers are at the scene. It is unknown if anyone else is in the house. There are no reports of any injuries.
    A GMP spokesman said: “We have an ongoing incident. We believed somebody might be armed. “At the moment the plan will be to talk with him and get him to come out. “He’s in a house on Heath Road. We don’t know if he’s alone.”

    You may be wondering why I've posted this tonight? It's 01.30 am and its now been 6 1/2 hours since this story started, my point. It 26 degrees both inside and outside, and for the last 6 1/2 hours My self, my son & my partner have been virtual prisoners in our own home. Why you ask? because this event is happening 2 houses away from mine and the police say that we need to keep doors and windows closed.

    If he manages to escape over his back wall if would off had a straight run the back of our gardens.

    we were told that we could leave but there was no guarantee when it would be okay to return. this wasn't really a option as all our extented family live on the other side of manchester.

    Sorry if this sounds like a rant - I hate hot weather and can't stand not having windows open, My guitar room is currently saying 32 degrees:mad: and theres still no end in sight.

    Sorry to hear about this. I hope it resolves quickly and safely. The police should have the back exits covered.
