A police officer has told of the moment he feared for his life after a man apparently pointed an imitation gun at his face and threatened to shoot him.

Sergeant Tony Webb, of West Midlands Police, was with a colleague responding to reports of a disturbance in Erdington, Birmingham, at just before midnight on April 13 when he saw a man grabbing a woman by the neck then throwing her to the floor and kicking her in the ribs.

Sgt Webb chased him to a property before the suspect turned and pointed a handgun-shaped object at his face and threatened to “blast” him.

Body-worn camera footage shows the moment seconds later when armed officers detained the gunman, Andrew Cullen, 42.
