A Blantyre street has been closed off for most of the night by police.
Chestnut Grove in the Wheatlands area saw a police response around 11.15pm last night, Tuesday 4th June 2019 after multiple police vehicles arrived. The street was closed off and remained shut through the early hours of this morning, still closed off at 3am.
One resident told us “An armed response has arrived.” Another told us, “Please can you post asking people to avoid the area. Its quiet being the middle of the night, but there are lots of police here and nobody can get through”.
The nature of the incident is unknown. We have avoided speculative comments messaged to us and will post, if appropriate when more information can be confirmed from official sources.
