Armed police have swooped on a bus in Cornwall after an alleged axe attack in Newquay.

Passengers have told how officers stormed the service between Trispen and Truro on Wednesday afternoon.

The operation is thought to have been sparked by an alleged assault involving the weapon on Henver Road in Newquay on Wednesday lunchtime.

Officers are now appealing for help to find an axe, described as orange with a black rubber handle.

A man in his early thirties was taken to hospital with injuries to his face.

Around an hour later, officers carrying firearms boarded the bus on its way from the resort to Truro.

The driver is believed to have told police a passenger was acting oddly.

A twenty-four year old man has been arrested on suspicion of assault causing GBH.

He has been released on bail.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "At around 1pm on Wednesday 5th November, armed officers attended a property in Henver Road, Newquay following a report of an assault involving a weapon.

"At 2.45pm, a suspect was travelling on a bus between Trispen and Truro when he was arrested by local units and firearms officers after the driver alerted police to his behaviour.

"A 24-year-old man from Newquay has been arrested on suspicion of causing GBH and has been bailed until the 9th of January 2015. The victim, in his early 30’s went to Treliske Hospital for treatment for his injuries.

"The weapon has yet to have been located and is described as short handled orange coloured axe with a black rubber handle.

"Police are appealing for any witnesses to call 101 quoting crime reference CR/120107/14."
