Armed police talked down a veiled woman who had been suspected of being a bomber today after a chilling eight-hour stand-off in a quiet seaside town.

Officers took aim at her shortly after 11am having received a tip-off claiming she could have an explosive device in her bag.

A 40-year-old woman was then arrested in connection with the incident around 7.30pm under Section 136 of the Mental Health Act.

The drama unfolded at the seafront in Saltburn, Teesside. Army bomb disposal experts were called in immediately.

Superintendent Ciaron Irvine said: ‘This was a fairly lengthy incident with a successful outcome.’

  1. From the looks of the google earth image posted in this NorthenEcho.co.uk article, of the birds eye view of the location of this eight hour standoff, it appears to have been quite remote. Think about that. Eight hours worth of police, military and air support diverted to this location. Begs the question . . .was she providing a diversion from some other more nefarious activity.
    Here’s another article which is typical of what irritates the perpetually irritable tribe -via the same source on Monday:
    ‘We still intend to finish the job in Afghanistan’

  2. This is the fault of the bloody politicians who let in millions of these potential Jihadis into the country. Even of they are not, then their growth rate due to a high birth rate, means the dissolution of the UK as we know it.

    Let us read what thinkers thought of Islam and Muslims not that long ago

    Founder of International Law Thought Islamic States Should be Excluded from the Family of Nations

    It’s always interesting to read perspectives on Islam from the era before political correctness cast its blight upon the western world, driving honest discussion from mainstream public discourse out to the margins, before it finally made a glorious comeback on the blogosphere.

  3. Update:

    “Today, a Cleveland Police spokeswoman said: “The woman has been released into the care of her family and medical profession so that she can access the appropriate help and support.” link

    And who is expected to pay for the expenses involved for eight hours of police, military as well as air support and bomb disposal units? Now multiply that cost to address each and every episode these uniformly (pun intended) ‘mentally challenged’ members of this cult potentially present.
