The stabbing of three people at a London tube station by a man wielding a large knife is being treated as a “terrorist incident”, the Met Police has said…

Video footage obtained by Sky News shows police officers trying to subdue the suspect with a taser several times before they successfully bring him to the ground.

Sky’s Mark White said: “A man in the main entrance hall by the ticket barrier, we are told, started attacking commuters leaving that station.”

Eyewitness reports said the alleged knifeman spoke of Syria, which has been confirmed to Sky News by sources.

Passengers ran from the scene as the incident unfolded.

One eyewitness, who was outside the station as events unfolded, told Sky News: “I could hear people pleading for help… and all of a sudden people started running out of the station…”
