Breaking: One dead, five injured in central London knife attack

A woman in her 60s has died and five other people have been injured after a man with 'significant mental health issues' allegedly 'went on the rampage' with a knife in a possible terror-related attack in central London.

Police confirmed a 19-year-old man was arrested after being Tasered in connection with a mass stabbing in front of horrified onlookers in Russell Square at about 10.30pm last night. He remains in hospital under armed guard.
Fears that the knifeman operated with an accomplice were raised in the early hours as the Met refused to rule out further suspects. One witness said he saw 'a man flee on a motorbike', while another described hearing a victim 'screaming and covered in blood'. Photos show what appear to be a bladed weapon abandoned at the scene. The incident occurred in the same area as where one of the 7/7 bombs detonated in 2005. The condition of those injured and the extent of their injuries is not known at present
