Chief Superintendent Phil Ward said:

“We are mindful of the public’s concern that these types of incidents may be related to terrorism.

But there is nothing to suggest that this is anything other than an isolated incident.

It has been dealt with promptly by the responding police and emergency services.

I want to offer reassurance that our priority at all times is the safety of the public.”

OUR EMERGENCY SERVICES GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND

They play an important role, with members going beyond the call of duty when most needed.

A resident of Hull, Ollie Wilson, 26, was standing outside when the incident occurred:

“I stood outside Santander and this guy came running in. Everyone was shouting 'get away' and they were screaming and shouting.

He ran out of Santander and everyone was saying 'move back.

Then went into Barclays and threw a load of petrol on the floor and this woman came out screaming.

There were flames and the next thing I knew armed police turned up.

They chased him down the street and caught him near Hull Paragon.”
