A MAN is in police custody today after pulling a handgun and threatening late-night revellers in Ipswich town centre.

This terrifying incident is the latest in a series of violent scenes which have left taxi -rivers threatening a boycott.

People in the packed Glasshouse in The Buttermarket were shocked when a 20-year-old man brandished a .177 air pistol.

The drama unfolded after a man was ejected from the pub around 9.30pm. The man then pulled out what people thought was a gun and started brandishing it at the pub, before being overpowered by two men.

A pub employee, who helped tackle the man, said: "A man was ejected for smacking a guy in the face. He then went outside, brandished a gun and then tried to get in the pub."
