Lots of Rumours going around on Twitter but if either of the 2 main theories are true then it will be curtains for BLM as a serious movement in the UK.

I can't bring myself to watch people being stabbed and twitter is full of disinformation.

Is it one of the usual "mental health" people?

From what little I've read, it doesn't seem to be related to BLM one way or the other.

Random attacks, terror related, I assume.

Maybe, maybe not, but there was a large BLM that day in the same location and protesters don't all disappear the second the official protest ends.

Applies to all protests not just BLM

I dont want to speculate as it hasn't been proven but one video up on Twitter and the accent slang used would point towards a black British citizen but that's an unverified video and could be very misleading.

I would’ve be jumping to conclusions based on what you read and see on social media.. stupid. Best to wait until the police have done their investigations.

African British? What does that mean? Kids accents are all the same from down south, blood, innit.

...Ok. I see you edited. My response remains the same.

Sky news saying "a number" of fatalities. I assume this must be in addition to the 2 people taken to hospital.

I don't know i was answering your question and was trying to answer it as delicatly as possible based on what i saw on twitter. I've edited my post to use the correct term used by the most previous census.

It is with a health warning though

Lots of outlets reporting three dead, and two more hospitalised.

There's an eyewitness account on Mirror online of a lone attacker running around a circle of friends stabbing them - the eyewitness said he thought it was a game of 'duck duck goose' at first then saw the blood.

It's speculation. There are no known facts regarding who did this yet. There are unverified accounts but hard to know if fact or fake news.

If it is terrorist related will be one of 3 things

1. Islamic Related
2. BLM Related
3. Far Right Related

They are the only possible options for a terrorist related attack.

Interesting-not- interesting that they chose to give this chaps nationality out so quickly.

I suppose we'll be told to not look back in anger. Again
