A man has been charged after a standoff at a house over the weekend.

One man, 45 year old David Cawston of Badger in New Costessey, has been charged with two counts of possession of an air weapon with intent to cause fear or violence.

He appeared at Norwich Magistrates court this morning and has been remanded into custory to appear at Norwich Crown Court on Monday 23rd of May 2011.

Two other people, a woman and a man, both in their 40s, have been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
