    Oh my god this is terrible news. I hope the victims are ok my thoughts are with them, Thank you to the Police officers for their swift action in detaining this young men before more people were hurt.

    Greenwich Town Centre would have been very busy with tourist and local people including lots of children out enjoying a nice sunny afternoon in Greenwich.
