Police at scene after man 'goes on rampage with knife' in Hackney screaming 'I'll ki

This is the dramatic moment a knifeman was arrested by police yesterday evening following a stabbing on the London Overground.

One person was knifed in the attack at Hackney Central station in East London, his condition is not thought to be life-threatening.

Pictures from frightened commuters show hundreds of passengers evacuating the station with service suspended between Highbury & Islington and Stratford following the incident.

It came at the same time as three people were injured in a stabbing in Birmingham - the latest example of violent crime plaguing Britain's streets.

Witness Leon Bruff, 29, who was in the same carriage as the attack, said passengers 'trampled over each other' to escape the 'maniac'.

Mr Bruff told The Sun how the knifeman yelled: 'Don't mess with me, I'll kill you' while storming the train which was full of commuters and TfL staff.

The father-of-three added that the knifeman's blade was at least '12 inches long'.
