A suspected robber is arrested in London carrying what appears to be a semi-automatic weapon.

The man was detained by Metropolitan Police officers following a bank robbery on Borough High Street.

Twitter users reported that a man ran through a pub in the area armed with what looked like an AK47.

An AK47 is the gun of choice at The George Inn. Those wimpy Uzi things tend to jam when you need them at the bar.

I've never been behind the scenes at the George, but I'd always imagined it to be pretty much a dead end, with the only access via the courtyard.
