Police swarm residential Derby street

A number of police vehicles were outside a Derby property this afternoon.

We received reports of a heavy police presence in Markeaton Street shortly after 3.30pm.

Police have yet to confirm the nature of the incident, although forensic officers were seen entering a house a short distance away from Derby West End Bowls Club.

Neighbours say at least five police vehicles were in attendance.

Our reporter Tom Bokros went to the scene.
