A 29-year-old man from Hyde Park has been jailed for 23 months after sparking a three-hour siege during which he aimed a crossbow at a police inspector and threatened to kill himself.

Kevan Higgins, of Hamilton Road, was ‘smashing up’ his girlfriend’s flat in Kirkgate, Bridlington when police responded to reports of a disturbance.

Higgins was ‘heavily in drink’ and was throwing items including pictures out of the window, Hull Crown Court heard.
