BREAKING: Major police operation underway in East Ham, London
Barking Road, East Ham, has been sealed off with the shocking clip showing armed police aiming their weapons towards the roof of a parade of businesses.
They can be heard shouting: “Stand up, show us your hands.”
Officers have now raided a property at the scene, which is located near a Paddypower bookmakers branch.
Despite some reports on social media of a “man on the roof”, the small size of the police cordon indicates this is not the case.
