Axeman attacks garda station

A MAN wielding an axe entered a garda station and smashed a number of windows yesterday.

The man walked into the station in Limerick City at around 4pm and began breaking windows in the front public office.

Frightened staff and members of the public dived for cover as the man went berserk.

Gardai pursued the man and then tackled him outside the station in front of shocked passers-by.

It is understood the incident was caught on CCTV, which will be reviewed.
