Staff were sweeping up broken glass and a half eaten meal had been abandoned on a table and what looked like blood was spattered on the floor and furniture.

A worker at the restaurant said: "We have to continue with the clean-up for health and safety and hope to be open later. I think it was some guy with mental health issues."

West Yorkshire Police have been approached for comment.
