Reports say that a group of armed men may have taken hostages in the northern French town of Roubaix.

Local media said the incident took place at around 19:00 local time (18:00 GMT).

Witnesses reported gunshots being fired. Media reports say the area has been closed off by police.

The incident does not appear to be related to the ongoing security situation in France following the 13 November attacks in Paris.
