Anthony Underwood, 27, smashed in the side door of Bedford police station before running off into a busy road waving a three foot long machete and hammer. CCTV footage released by Bedfordshire police show unarmed officers streaming out of the station in pursuit of Underwood to try to protect shoppers from potential injury. The incident ended with a flying rugby tackle by Sgt Phil Boyd, who decided to try to bring Underwood under control when the weapons were suddenly dropped in front of him. In interview later on in the day, Underwood told officers after being arrested that he was desperate to go to prison to try to kick a £300 per day cocaine habit and thought that his actions would get him there.
