A suspected machete attacker has been arrested after a rampage in Liverpool.

Several people have been taken to hospital with lacerations after attacks near Anfield Stadium.

Police were called after receiving reports of someone yelling at people and brandishing what witnesses described as a machete.

A local man was arrested soon after in nearby Stanley Park and is being questioned by detectives.

The police assume that the suspect suffers from mental health problems and exclude a terrorist motive at this point in time.

All those injured are expected to make a full recovery.

Detective Chief Inspector Cath Cummings said: “This incident will have been frightening for both those attacked and witnesses and we will give them our full support.

“I understand the circumstances will also be scary for the wider community at Anfield.

“Thankfully, specialized officers quickly stepped in, arrested a suspect and ended the incident and there is no ongoing threat to the public.

“While we do not believe anyone else was responsible, additional officers will be deployed on high-visibility patrols around the Anfield area in the coming days to reassure the community.”
