EastEnders fans picked up on a number of blunders the police made in the BBC soap as they handled Hunter Owen’s (played by Charlie Winters) Queen Vic siege.

The young fugitive intended on getting revenge on Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) who was partly responsible for his arrest.

However, when the Queen Vic punters realised Hunter was holding Jack at gunpoint, Hunter kept the entire pub hostage in a bid to keep control.

Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) was then left fighting for his life after getting caught in the crossfire.

Viewers watching the tense scenes picked up on a number of blunders the police made as they tried to convince Hunter to hand himself over to authorities. 

Despite police surrounding the Square almost immediately after the first gunshot was sounded, Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) managed to find his way in.

Realising his son had been shot, and his daughter, Louise (Tilly Keeper) was held captive, Phil crept into the pub armed with a crow bar.

At the front of the Queen Vic police refused to let any Walford residents through while leaving the back door to the pub wide open.

Later on in the episode, Hunter walked out into the Square with Louise at gunpoint.

Hunter then shot Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) as he rushed towards his fiancé.
