The man holding the confiscated knife was a member of the public trying to help.
But when it looked the 'baddie' might detonate a suicide bomb, and it was obvious the police were about to open fire, the man with the knife quite rightly legged it to a safe distance away.
That is why a man was seen running away with a knife.
I think some might have misinterpreted what they saw.
Not confused Mups but thanks . Here I see the man who is holding said knife but where is the blood if two have been killed with it ? https://postimg.cc/n9qtL1Q6
There are no people around yet one witness estimated there were arond 300 people on the bridge .

I think the man holding the knife was very brave.... and it's lucky he wasn't shot dead in the confusion.

I thought the same, dongle.
It could have looked bad when he ran away waving that knife about.
As you say, lucky he wasn't shot, too.

Who knows?

But many will chose to cross the road and walk past on the other side.

Re: Breaking news! (London Bridge attack)

He was wearing a suicide vest which turned out to be a hoax, the police would not take any chances, thatís why they told everyone to run, they then shot him twice, ( in the head presumably) they couldnít possibly know if the bomb was real or not
