Stand off in Brixton

Stand off in Brixton

The eastern part of Coldharbour Lane has been sealed off all day as police have tried to talk a woman out of her flat. Apparently, the woman was due in court today but didn’t show up. The police were called and when they went around her flat she flashed a blade of some description and threatened to kill her three kids inside.
