Armed police made an arrest in Canterbury tonight following reports a man was brandishing a gun.
Officers were called at just after 8.30pm after a man was spotted carrying what was thought to be a firearm in the city centre.
Witnesses reported seeing an unmarked dark blue Volvo parked near the Tannery development on the ring road.
Officers standing next to the car appeared to be cocking their weapons before jumping back in the Volvo and speeding off towards the Westgate Towers.
A witness said: "It looked like they had just pulled over to get their guns ready. One had a rifle, the other a pistol."
Minutes later the car was seen performing a sharp U-turn by the Westgate Towers.
Police searched the area and arrested a 35-year-old man on suspicion of firearms offences.
