A MAN has been charged with wasting police time following an alleged hoax call which sparked a major police operation.

The 43-year-old was arrested at an address near Allesley Park, Coventry following a three hour siege involving dozens of police, including firearms officers.

It came after a call was made to police claiming another man armed with a gun was in a flat in Forth Drive, Chelmsley Wood near Solihull threatening to shoot the occupants.

He was charged on Friday and will appear at Solihull Magistrates Court on May 11.
