In the dramatic video, the suspect appears to shout “kill me” as members of the community grapple him as they wait for police to arrive.

The chaotic footage also shows a number of people lying on the ground close to a white van, which is believed to have been hired in Wales.

The man suspected of driving the van has been identified as Darren Osborne, a 47-year-old father of four.
