A Flintshire man has been jailed for staging a three-hour siege in which he shot at police with an air rifle.

Mold Crown Court heard how the incident in April started after forty-two-year-old Stephen Ellis thought a neighbour had taken his dog.

Ellis admitted possessing the rifle with intent to cause fear of violence, and was jailed for three years.
