Police have made an arrest following reports of a man threatening his landlord with a knife.

Havering Police were called to a flat in Roneo Corner, Hornchurch, yesterday at about 11am and arrested a 46-year-old Romford man for public order offences after police were initially refused entry to the flat.

The man was then taken to an east London Police station.

A bus stop near the flat was closed temporarily as a safety precaution.
