'I'm not a hero', says man who confronted Tube attacker

A man who fought with a knife-wielding Tube attacker has said he is "not a hero".

Ex-Uber driver Muhiddin Mire will be sentenced today after he was convicted of trying to behead a stranger at Leytonstone Tube station in London last December.

David Pethers, exchanged words with the 30 year old before having a "running battle" with him, during which he was cut across the neck.

He told Good Morning Britain he felt he could have done more to stop the attacker.

"I don't think I'm a hero at all," he said. "Anyone could have done it."
