A man is being treated in hospital after he was shot by police at a property in Surrey.

Armed response units were called to an address in Knaphill, Woking, just after 10pm last night after reports that a man was armed and was intending to harm himself and others, Surrey Police said.

Bomb disposal experts also attended over concerns that explosives may have been inside the property in Oak Tree Road.

The man, aged in his 40s, was later shot at the scene before being taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting, police said. It is not known how serious his injuries are.

Another man, aged in his 30s, was arrested and remains in custody.

Officers also recovered a firearm from the scene.

It has yet to be examined by experts.

The incident has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
