A man has been arrested after appearing to try to get into the Royal Marines training camp in Devon.

The 36-year-old was detained at the Lympstone Commando railway station which, although being a national rail station, can only be exited through a locked gate to the Royal Marines Commando training centre.

The National Police Air Service (NPAS) helicopter made its way to the training centre in Lympstone at 4.15pm, after "reports of a male acting suspiciously at the main gate".

NPAS Exeter posted on Twitter: "Ground officers quickly located the male nearby who turned out to be wanted by police - one arrested."

Devon & Cornwall Police do not believe the incident to be terror-related.
