Armed police were sent to an argument involving an axe-wielding motorist in Dorset.

The dispute broke out between two motorists on Aylesbury Road, Boscombe, on Monday night.

But by the time officers arrived on the scene both vehicles had left. The area was searched but no arrests were made.

Ch Insp Debbie Marsden said: "Due to information that weapons were present, armed units attended with response officers to locate the offenders."

She added: "Witnesses reported that the occupants from two motor vehicles were in dispute. One of those involved was armed with an axe."

Police are asking for anyone who saw the incident to come forward.
