Police called to 'man armed with gun and knife' at Greenwich Mercure

Reported in Tuesday's Evening Standard:
'Police were sent to a four-star boutique hotel yesterday after a man claimed someone was in his room armed with a gun and knife. Officers arrived at the Mercure Hotel’s reception area in Catherine Grove, Greenwich, after receiving the call. Police tweeted that a man suffering a “mental health crisis” in the lobby was carrying a knife and had to be disarmed by officers.'
Sharp-eyed locals will note that the picture used by the paper isn't of the Mercure. The same picture was used in News Shopper, who also decided that the Mercure is in Deptford rather than Greenwich.
