Ramadan worshippers have detained a man at a London mosque after he reportedly attempted to attack people with a hammer. 

The worshippers seized the man at around 4.30am outside the Darussalam Cultural Centre in Southall, west London. 

He was arrested by police, who said the incident was not terror related.

"A 38-year-old man is reported to have attempted to attack people," said a Metropolitan Police spokesman. 

He was detained by worshippers prior to police arrival.

He has subsequently been arrested on suspicion of attempted grievous bodily harm and is in custody at a west London police station.
