Eager property hunters have spotted armed police outside a semi-detatched property listed for £375,000 on Rightmove.

The house in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, features three double bedrooms, a south-facing rear garden and off-road parking for two cars.

But when prospective house buyers press the ‘open map’ feature on Rightmove, they are greeted with a Google Streetview image of two police officers holding guns outside the house.

And just a few yards down the road – which several police cars are parked along – a group of people are seen standing with officers by an ambulance.

Around the corner, a smashed-up white van can be seen as an officer stands nearby.

Amazed property hunters took to Twitter to marvel at the bizarre sight – with some sarcastically listing an ‘armed police presence’ along with other desirable property qualities.

The images were taken when police attended a street fight on April 30, 2019, which erupted when two vehicles crashed.

Groups from each van began fighting – with one person left with a broken arm.

After the incident, Mark Brazil, 40, admitted one charge of possession of an offensive weapon and was sentenced to a six-month suspended sentence, BBC News reports.

And 40-year-old Sue Brazil – who lives at the same address as Mark – admitted possession of an article with a blade or point and was handed a 12-month community order.

A 12-month referral order was given to a 17-year-old – who cannot be named due to his age – after he admitted to possession of an article with a blade or point. 

Amazed Rightmove viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the Street View find.

Carl Hendy created a fake listing for the property, writing: ‘House for sale: Semi-detached. Off-street parking. Armed police presence.’

Andrew Maison ironically added: ‘Excellent access to various footpaths (over fence) at rear of property, including to car park (and own parking space, useful for awaiting getaway vehicle etc).’

Mircea Dogaru said: ‘Well at least we know why they’re selling.’

Meanwhile, Dan Barker added: ‘A unique SEO problem: Trying to sell a house when Street View shows armed police in attendance.’

It adds: ‘There is off road parking to the front for two vehicles and a particular feature is the delightful south facing rear garden extending to about 96 feet in length.
