As the first man appears, he is instructed to turn around with his hands above his head and then walk down the driveway to one of the police cars. 

The man then makes his way towards the car, placing both hands on the back before being searched by officers.

A second man appears from the house and is asked to again turn around with his hands on his head and is ordered to walk to the same car.

A number of officers, with guns pointing at the window, then approach the house before opening the door and entering the property. 

South Yorkshire Police said the incident was a pre-planned operation but could not reveal further details at this time.
