Shots are heard; POLICE: NORTH TODAY.

ARMED police raided a Tyneside house and arrested two suspects after shots were allegedly fired. The two men were led out of the house, in Newcastle's West End, by officers.

The drama started to unfold at around 11.10am, when a member of the public called 999 to say they heard gunshots near the city's West Road Crematorium.

Officers were able to trace two people, who had been spotted nearby, to a house on Park Road, Cruddas Park. A 19-year-old and 51-year-old were arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm.
