Terror of axe and 'acid' raid on Cleckheaton pub

THREE men have been arrested on suspicion of robbery after a terrifying late-night raid on a pub in Cleckheaton.

Axe-wielding robbers threatened to spray acid at drinkers in the Marsh Hotel last Monday.

The incident happened at 11.10pm when three hooded suspects entered the pub on Bradford Road and demanded money.

Pub landlord Neil Barker was hit in the face with an axe and sprayed with an unknown substance, while another customer was also sprayed during the ordeal.

Police say two men have been released under investigation but a third man remains in police custody.

Anyone with any information can contact police 101 quoting crime reference 13190231642.
