A property on Briar Gate in Long Eaton is taped off this morning (Wednesday, February 5) while officers ‘speak to an occupant’.

Derbyshire Police tweeted that people should avoid the area and that there are traffic delays.

We have contacted the force for more information but a spokesperson said there was no further information they could provide on the ongoing incident at this time.
