Terrified children 'witness stabbing' while walking home from school

According to the Evening Standard, parents were taking their children home from school at the time of the attack. One eyewitness, Jack Brady said:

I heard some screams and loud shouting. There were police and ambulances everywhere.

There was a friend or relative that came through the cordon and stood over him looking distraught.

There were lots of mums coming home from school with their kids that had to be escorted away just after it happened and a few were interviewed.

He must have been stabbed right there in broad daylight in front of people from the sounds of the screams.
