A mentally disturbed man who brought Hucknall town centre to a standstill has been jailed for five years.

Reece Theison (20), of no fixed address, holed himself up at the Spot-On snooker and leisure club on Vine Terrace, off High Street, during an armed siege with police.

Nottingham Crown Court was told that Theison, carrying what looked like a real gun, kept police officers at bay for more than ten hours on Thursday 13th March.
