A 36-year-old man has been charged over a three-hour siege at a bank.

Around 15 people were alleged to have been held hostage at Barclays Bank in Ashford, Surrey, on Monday.

Matthew Nutley, of Brookside Avenue, Ashford, has been charged with offences including robbery, false imprisonment, possession of an imitation firearm with intent to commit robbery and two counts of making threats to kill.

He will appear before Staines Magistrates' Court later.

He has also been charged with blackmail, making a bomb hoax and possession of an offensive weapon, Surrey Police said.

No one was injured in the incident at the Church Road bank.

Tim Kiy, Barclays corporate affairs director, thanked Surrey Police for their role in the "swift and successful outcome".
