A man wearing a Help For Heroes T-shirt has reportedly been hacked to death by two machete-wielding assailants in broad daylight in south-east London.
The two knifemen are understood to have been shot by armed police, although Scotland Yard will still only confirm officers had been called to reports of an assault on John Wilson Street at around 2.20pm.
Eyewitness James Heneghan told LBC 97.3 he and his wife had witnessed two men hacking at a third with two large kitchen knives.
We saw the whole incident, he said fighting back tears. They were hacking at this poor guy, hacking him, chopping him.
Mr Heneghan claimed one of the suspects had pointed a gun at his wife before they jumped back into his car and called the police.
He went on to claim that after the men had attacked the victim they dragged him into the middle of the street like a piece of meat.
A group of women then rushed to the victim to shield him from further attacks, Mr Heneghan continued, as the two knifemen stopped a passing bus and encouraged passengers to take pictures of them while they posed with their knives.
Woolwich and Greenwich MP Nick Raynsford said that he understood the victim to be a serving soldier from Woolwich Barracks.
Ill be talking to everyone who is involved, we will be trying to do everything possible to try and ensure calm in the area. People will be very, very shocked, he told BBC Radio 5 Live.
We think a serving soldier was the victim. We dont know the circumstances surrounding the incident.
We do know a number of weapons have been seized. They include a gun, various knives, and a machete, apparently.

If it were just chavs, the article would say.
A two-man isolated incident.
I didn’t know there were illegal alien Mexicans living in the UK.
It is too bad the British women citizens are not allowed to conceal carry guns. this could have been stopped quickly
When you outlaw machetes, only outlaws will have machetes.
***’Hacked to Death By Machetes***
Machetes or Pangas. Panga is an Africanized machete used mostly in the Ruanda massacres a few years ago.
I’m surprised the people can get these in England.
Several witnesses described seeing a beheading while another described seeing a man wearing a Help for Heroes T-shirt being attacked with a machete-style knife and dumped in a south east London street.
No. Clearly Amish.
It isn’t hard to make one.
Ya know, it’s past fury anymore .. it’s just cold, very cold .. the kind of indifference that steps on a cockroach without thought or qualm.
They're still wearing PC blinders.
The man was apparently a serving soldier himself.
Must be another ‘act of (close to the) workplace violence’, like Fort Hood in the US!
Between this barbaric machete attack and the days long riots in Sweden, I’d say that multiculturalism is working out just great in Europe.
Actually, if I was European I’d have to say that or risk being thrown in jail.
Even more wait when the responding cops don't have guns.
"Ohhhhh myyyy God!!!! I just see a man with his head chopped off right in front of my eyes!"
"The two black bredas run this white guy over over then hop out the car and start chopping mans head off with machete!!
