A school in Cornwall has closed as police search for a 60-year-old man who is believed to have access to firearms.
The hunt for the man was sparked after a domestic incident at an address in Widegates, near Looe, Cornwall at around 9.30pm last night.
Devon and Cornwall Police said the nearby Trenode Church of England primary school has been closed as a precaution.
“We do understand that this will cause some significant inconvenience for some parents and local residents and this decision was not taken lightly but public safety is our most important concern of the school and police,” a police spokesperson said
The public have been warned to avoid the area and to report any suspicious activity.
