CRIMEWAVE BRITAIN: London siege ends as gunman ESCAPES police

A SUSPECTED gunman has managed to flee armed police despite being surrounded at a property in North London. The siege began when police were sent to carry out an arrest warrant to a flat on the Mayville Estate in Stoke Newington at around 8am this morning.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Police initially attended an address in Mayville Estate at about 8am to carry out a search warrant.

"While in attendance, a man who was believed to be in possession of a firearm, made his way to the roof of the property. He came down a short time later."

Police believed the gunman had re-entered the flat, but found a different man inside the property while the suspect fled.
