Sean Rigg, a physically fit 40-year-old musician, was held by police after he attacked passers-by in Balham, south London.

He had a 20-year history of mental illness following a bad acid trip and was a black belt in karate. He had destroyed a gazebo in his hostel's garden in Brixton that afternoon.
