The assault took place at 7.45 am this morning (July 25) and the man, believed to be between 20 and 30 was arrested at the scene.

One officer sustained minor injuries in the struggle to his finger and hand for which he received treatment.

An investigation has been launched and a “terrorist motive” has not been ruled out as the man had been involved in a similar incident “a few days previously” but on that occasion did not carry a weapon.
