BREAKING: Panic As Shots Fired In Bristol – Police Surround Car Near M5

Several shots have been fired in Bristol.  The incident happened near Portishead.  Police are surrounding a car near the M5 motorway after the incident.  It is not yet known if there are any casualties.  Witnesses report heavy police presence in the area and the M5 has been closed to all traffic.

Witness David Ellison told the BBC: “As I came out of Portishead … police were ahead of me. They surrounded [a car]. They shot maybe five, six or ten times. Then they dragged a man from the car to resuscitate him. It came off the roundabout towards Portishead and then was boxed in by cars.

“They shot through the passenger window. There were one or two marked cars and two more unmarked vehicles. I would say it was a 20-year-old red Corsa – or something like that. It was quite small. It was very faded.”  MORE FOLLOWS…
