Three men have been arrested after a manhunt by armed police in Scunthorpe.

Two people allegedly tried to force their way into a home in the Hadleigh Court area "using a weapon with a long blade", Humberside Police said.

A man living at the property suffered a small hand injury during the incident before the men made off on foot.

Officers erected a cordon in the Mary Street area and roads in the immediate vicinity were closed while an investigation was carried out.

Three men, aged 26, 26 and 27, were later arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary.
