The incident began at around 5.45pm and lasted for three hours, ending when a suspect emerged from the store and was 'shot' at by police.

The video clip, shot by Gary Marshall and shared on his Facebook page in a public post, shows officers fire at the man, and rush over to arrest him as he falls to the floor.

Earlier today, Northumbria Police confirmed officers used an AEP, a type of baton round which replaced rubber bullets, to bring the situation to an end.
