‘A very powerful police officer’
Witnesses described a “very powerful” officer from the Metropolitan Police who was on hand at the scene, who went by the name of Kevin D’Arcy.
Witness Michael Hodge said: “He’s been there, seen the incident. He is a very powerful police officer.
“He is looking straight at you, he’s watching you. He doesn’t go by name, he goes by his badge.
“He’s a big guy, he’s very fit, it’s quite a small man. He’s got a pair of headphones on, but he’s sitting down on a bench in front of the whole train.
“It must have taken him about 20 minutes.”
Teezee, from Clapton, said he was on the train with his three children when he heard the attack.
He said: “We heard shouting. It was absolutely horrendous, we thought someone had just blown it up.
“Everyone thought they were heading to work or something.”
He added: “We saw this really huge police officer on the platform and we thought ‘That man is going to do something’.
“My wife’s friend was sitting next to me and we didn’t know what had happened. It happened so fast.
“It was very sad. I couldn’t think of any words or anything.”
