NORTH Walk in Barnstaple was closed last night (Weds) while armed police officers dealt with an incident at the police station.

Officers were scrambled to the scene after a man allegedly drove into the police station yard and allegedly ‘made threats to kill’.

A police spokesman said it was unclear if the man had a weapon so firearms were dispatched to the scene.

The road was cordoned off at 6.20pm for safety reasons for around two hours.

A 48 year old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of drink driving and making threats to kill.

He remains in custody and will be interviewed this morning.
