DOZENS of people have been evacuated from Solar Bowl in Ipswich tonight after reports of a man brandishing a gun.

Armed police are currently on the scene off Sproughton Road.

One witness, who asked not to be named, said: “We were bowling when the fire alarm started to sound and there was a voice saying this is not a drill.

“We've been moved to the back of the car park, but there are armed police and police dogs. The helicopter is hovering above too.

“I didn't actually see anything I just heard a girl say there was a man with a gun.

“It happened about 9.20pm. None of us can leave the car park because the road is all cordoned off.”
