Shop staff in the vicin­ity were also aware that some­thing was hap­pen­ing at Ba­roosh.

Mad­die Mole, at next door Homely House, said: “I was talk­ing to a cus­tomer and then sud­denly all th­ese po­lice vans and cars ar­rived.

Ryan West­lake, at Ben­sons for Beds, saw ‘about six’ armed po­lice of­fi­cers go into the wine bar.

A spokesman for McMullen & Sons brew­ery, which runs the wine bar, said on Fri­day: “The team were ex­cel­lent and looked af­ter our cus­tomers, the po­lice were quick to re­spond and took charge of the sit­u­a­tion.

“One mem­ber of the team had been to hospi­tal with what we be­lieve to be mi­nor wounds, but ev­ery­one is shaken by the event.”

Fol­low­ing his ap­pear­ance at Red­hill Mag­is­trates’ Court, Mr Grif­fin was re­manded in cus­tody.

He is due to ap­pear for a hear­ing at Guild­ford Crown Court on Thurs­day Novem­ber 5.
