Following the death of a man wearing a Help for Heroes t-shirt thought to be a member of the military in the vicinity of Woolwich barracks, south east London, more details have emerged about the shocking incident.

“I saw a man on the road, obviously injured and a car badly crashed I assumed it was a road accident, although the car was funny on the pavement, it was not coming on the road,” the former teacher told ITV’s Daybreak this morning.

“Being a cub leader I have my first aid so when I saw this guy on the floor I thought it was an accident then I saw the guy was dead and I could not feel any pulse,” she told The Daily Telegraph yesterday.

“I thought I had better start talking to him before he starts attacking somebody else. I thought these people usually have a message so I said ‘what do you want?’”

“I asked him if he did it and he said yes and I said why? And he said because he has killed Muslim people in Muslim countries, he said he was a British soldier and I said really and he said ‘I killed him because he killed Muslims and I am fed up with people killing Muslims in Afghanistan…”

“I wasn’t scared. Rather me than a child,” she recounted to ITV’s Daybreak this morning.

“More and more people were starting to come. I mean there was absolutely nobody when I arrived apart form the bus and people stayed on the bus and there was just this lady cradling the soldier and gradually people started to come. I imagine the soldier was losing more and more blood and attracting people and there was so many people around,”

“We want to start a war in London tonight,” one of the unidentified men involved in the incident told Loyau-Kennett.
“Right now it is only you versus many people, you are going to lose,” she told the alleged killer.

Loyau-Kennett’s son shared a photo he spotted taken of his mother taken at the scene on Twitter.
