At 13:24 the Argus reported:
Police have arrested the man from inside the house. Wearing a green hoody over his head, he was brought out by officers, some wearing riot-gear helmets and carrying shields. He did not say anything and seemed compliant as he was put into the back of a police van. A couple of minutes later another police officer came out of the house with a large knife, with a blade about six inches long.
The police van has now left the scene with the man in the back. Police are now clearing the scene and the bailiffs are still here. More information here: http://bit.ly/1yRtqAd
