A man in Hainault, East London – near the Central Line – went on a rampage yesterday with a sword, killing a 14-year-old boy and injuring two others. He was stopped by police officers armed with nothing other than tasers and the moment was seen by a security camera.

Not all the details of the horrific incident are known, like motive, but the bravery of the officers is evident (though I feel I should warn you that their language is somewhat fruity – here we repost the video as posted by the Guardian since they've added fewest captions save for a warning).
