A 16-year-old boy arrested after armed police were called to reports of three people being threatened with a gun has been released from custody.

They had threatened two women and a man in the house, police said.

A boy was later arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear.

He has now been released under investigation pending further inquiries.
