Version 0 of 1.

A siege at a house in Nottinghamshire involving a 45-year-old man thought to be armed with a sword has ended after more than 33 hours.

A woman, a child and another man, who had all allegedly been taken hostage, left when police were called to the scene at about 0900 BST on Sunday.

Nearby properties in Carlton in Lindrick, near Worksop, were evacuated.

At 1820 BST on Monday the man left the house voluntarily and was taken into police custody.

No-one was hurt in the incident, and neighbours were allowed to return to their houses.

A Nottinghamshire Police spokeswoman said: "Police would like to thank residents for their patience and co-operation."
