Jailed for ten years: the Cornishman who twice held his young sons hostage when cornered by police.

Paul Muller held a knife to his two year old's throat in 2001 when officers tried to arrest him at Sennen.

They chased the 55 year old to Wiltshire; a chase that ended in an armed stand-off that shut the M5.

He skipped bail and a decade later, threatened his second child with a screwdriver.
