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.
