A police cordon was set up around the flats and two officers remained at the scene for much of Saturday.

The majority of residents in the area said they were unaware of what went on.

Now, police investigating the incident have revealed that the woman arrested has been released on police bail.

This means she will be required to return to the police station at a later date.

No witness appeal has been issued so far by the force.
