A man was tackled to the ground and placed under citizen’s arrest in the ancient English cathedral town of Salisbury Thursday afternoon after he repeatedly struck a glass case containing an original copy of the Magna Carta, it is alleged.

The attack, which is being reported as either an attempted theft or vandalisation of the priceless document, took place inside Salisbury Cathedral, where it is on display. A 45-year-old male has been arrested following the incident, there were no injuries, and the Magna Carta was not damaged.
