Man armed with a meat cleaver tried to set fire to a bank

Man held after Hull city centre bank blaze:

An eyewitness described seeing a man wielding a "cleaver" inside Santander in King Edward Street, Hull, at about 13:00 BST before he started a blaze.

Police said they were called to reports of a man with a bladed weapon who was carrying petrol.

Three people have been injured.

These things are almost a daily occurrence now.

Nowhere is safe.

A police spokesman said:

'We are mindful of the public's concern that these types of incidents may be related to terrorism, however there is nothing to suggest that this is anything other than an isolated incident'.
