"The man was taken to hospital for treatment but sadly he was pronounced dead a short time later.

"One man was arrested in Skipton shortly after the incident occurred and two men were arrested the next day at addresses in West Yorkshire.

"While there is understandable concern in the local community following Wednesday’s events, we'd stress that we are continuing to treat it as an isolated incident.

"That means there's not a wider risk to the public."

Bell is described as black, 5ft 8ins tall and a skinny build.

He is from Huddersfield but has links to Keighley and Spain, police said.
