A man has been charged with threats to kill after a disturbance at a house led to a six-hour stand-off with armed police.

Specialist negotiators were called to a house in Raffles Road, Birkenhead on Wednesday after a man barricaded himself inside.

A 25-year-old man, from Prenton, has also been charged with two counts of false imprisonment and affray.

He is due to appear at Liverpool Magistrates' Court.
