Colchester: Man arrested following police siege
A MAN has been arrested after he threatened police at a flat in Colchester.
Officers were called to the flats in Circuular Road South around 7.30am today following reports of a disturbance.
They closed off a section of the road.
Two hours later they arrested an 18-year-old man who is currently in Colchester General Hospital with cuts and bruises.
An Essex Police spokesman said the injuries had been self-inflicted.
The road has now been re-opened.
