London Bridge attack – Astonishing moment heroes blast terrorist with fire extinguisher and chase him with narwhal tusk

INCREDIBLE footage shows three heroes taking down London Bridge attacker Usmun Khan armed with only a fire extinguisher and a huge narwhal whale tusk.

The new video, shot from nearby by two onlookers, shows the three men armed with whatever they could grab from historic Fishmonger’s Hall bravely accosting the attacker who wore a hoax suicide vest.

Usman Khan, a convicted terrorist, yesterday carried out a knife rampage at a criminal justice conference at Fishmonger’s Hall on the North side of the bridge.

He was attending a prison rehabilitation event at the venue when he launched the attack before rushing out onto London Bridge.

The headquarters of one of the oldest livery companies in London is home to a number of historic artefacts including two 5ft narwhal tusks.

Hell unfolded in just eight minutes as the convicted terrorist attacked anyone in his path.

He stabbed five people, killing two – a man and a woman and injuring another two women and a man.

As he fled the Grade II listed building towards London Bridge – the scene of the horrific 2017 terrorist attack that killed eight – three incredibly brave bystanders grabbed makeshift weapons from the hall and accosted Khan.

One man, named only as Lukasz is thought to be a Polish chef who grabbed a 5ft whale tusk from the wall and gave the attacker “a beating.”

Another man sprays Khan with jets of foam and water from a fire extinguisher as he flails and slips on the bridge.

A third man wrestles the attacker to the floor. At the time none of the men were aware that the suicide vest Khan was strapped into was a hoax as they battled to bring him down.

One of the men who was part of the wider group who helped stop Khan was convicted murderer James Ford who was out on day release.

Two other men who helped to catch the attacker were fearless tour guides Thomas Gray, 24, and Stevie Hurst who jumped out of their car to help.

An cop in plain clothes bravely picked up one of the knives from the floor and carried it away from the attacker.

He told the Mail: “There were three big blokes grappling with another man and had him on the floor.

“I asked what was going on and someone said the man on the ground had just stabbed two women.

“I saw that he had two kitchen knives with blades about 8-inches long. One in each hand. One of the knives appeared to be attached to his hand by duct tape.

‘NO F***ING WAY’

“I stamped as hard as I could on his other wrist to make him let go of the knife and as he released it someone else kicked it away.

“He was saying “get off me” but we told him “no f***ing way is that happening”. The police were on the scene very quickly.

“The knifeman appeared to reach for something in a bag and the police warned us to move away saying he had a gun.”

Speaking yesterday, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan sad: “Members of the public didn’t realise at the time that was a hoax device and they really are the best of us, another example of the bravery and heroism of ordinary Londoners running towards danger, risking their own personal safety to try and save others.”

Moments after the attacker was pushed to the ground, two hero tour guides jumped into the scramble to help before another hero bystander wrestled the a large kitchen knife from Khan’s hand.

Armed police then flooded the area as it was revealed the attacker appeared to have a bomb.

In other footage circulating online, bystanders flee en-masse as armed cops surround Khan, working quickly to remove the hero bystanders from the scene.

Witnesses recounted how they heard “five or six” gunshots ring out as cops swooped.

Khan was shot dead at the scene by police at 2.03pm just five minutes after the attack started.

Amanda Hunter said she was on a bus when it came to a stop, saying: “There was a commotion and I looked over the window and I saw three police officers running over to a man who had something in his hand, I don’t know what.

“I saw a police officer shoot him.

“I saw a man and three police officers trying to put him on the ground and then I heard about three shots go into the man and then police officers went away from the suspect.”

Another witness said she had run down to help – seeing a woman whose neck and face were “covered in blood.”

Officials are now questioning how Khan – convicted of a terror plot to blow up the London Stock Exchange in 2012 – was back on the streets.

Khan, who was living in Staffordshire, was released from prison in December 2018 after serving eight years and was wearing a tag when he launched his rampage.

It is understood Khan was taught by Islam4UK’s leader Anjem Choudary, a hate preacher who was freed from prison in 2018.
