    It's a hostage situation people.

    I'm about 500 yards away from this bank that has been taken host age by a lone gun man in Watford, UK.

    Full news report here. I'm going in the front lines, will report back.

    I've got a few pictures. Sorry I couldn't give you a real time update, but this is what happened in chronological order (as FB updates)


    12:30 Bank heist, helicopters in sight. Only minutes away now.

    12:45 Where's the SWAT at?

    12:50 Bank heist. In Watford with a possible bomber.

    12:55 Am on the front lines now, need to get across the barrier somehow. I'm going on volunteer to help with years of BB gun experience.

    13:05 Who knows any shortcuts to natwest? We'll start a REVOLUTION who's with me? Get your tools out.

    13:12 Got a prime sniper position, on the roof of the highest car park in Watford, pictures coming soon.

    13:20 Just got caught by a cop and escorted down the sixth flight of stairs. These swat guys seem angryyyy.

    13:25 Do I run home and get a proper camera? Am going to try and NOT get arrested, trying to be a hero. If he blows shit up, I'm going RAMBO!

    13:27 There is nothing fun about it, we're sitting on the limit!

    13:29 Fire in the hole! I'm hit! I'm hit!

    13:30UPDATE: Someone has been arrested, 5 foot nine, dark hair, wearing a white shirt.

    13:35 Another bang is heard, cavalry running!

    13:45 He's been caught, just saw him. Dark hair, darker skin, glasses, short curly hair, didn't appear British, was laughing a little, seemed nerdy.

    13:55 Reports coming in of a second gun man, been shot three times by Swat.

    14:00 Nice! I was literally a second a way from taking a picture, stupid phone lagged up.

    UPDATE: Man in camoflage wearing a beret, and another man dressed in black with a large rucksack have left the bank.

    14:05 A police 4x4 has driven into Market Street and is stopped outside the bank.

    14:07 Got a picture of the armed men before storming. About to climb up a church chapel

    14:11 Saw two cars driving towards Watford, about to be transported to London metropolitan station or Liverpool st.

    14:15 A couple of army/military helping out.

    14:18 Bomb disposal unit has arrived.

    14:35 No longer on the chapel, in the green zone being forced to stay in a small perimeter by the police. Being kettles! Broadcast cameras around.

    14:45 I just got a TV appearance, check that out for a personal recount. I ran like 3 miles around Watford, climbed every possible stair case and roof, this was wild! Thanks for participating everyone.

    Much longer commentary available online.

    Seems like it was the BBC, not particularly sure if they decide to air the video though because I revealed some rather questionable details about myself.

    It will be bomb defusal squad. We don't tend to send platoons in unless its a disaster unlike in America where they call the National Guard if a cat gets stuck up a tree....

    The EOD, bomb disposal did their job, but throughout the day a couple of military members also kept guard, even saw a green beret in there.
