Police officers carrying firearms were seen outside the property in Mallow Close, Eynesbury, at about 5am.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police said: “Armed officers carried out two search warrants at two properties in St Neots in the early hours of this morning.

“A man was arrested on suspicion of failing to comply with an emergency protection order under Section 49 of the Children Act 1989 and has been taken to Parkside Police Station.”

Residents in the area said they became concerned after police officers arrived in two cars and a van – alongside a police dog handler - and raided the properties.
