    Firstly well done to the brave teacher and member of the public who managed to get the knife off the young man othewise the girls injuries could have been much worse.

    We need permanent stop and search introduced on the streets of London .24 hours a day 7 days a week a long with much tougher sentencing by the courts, we have all got to work together to get these terrible crimes of our streets.

    I hope the victim makes a full recovery and in time can get over this ordeal. My thoughts are with the other students staff and members of the public who witnesses this attack,.
