18 March 2019

British counter terrorism police said on Sunday they were investigating an attempted murder which "has hallmarks of a terror event, inspired by the far-right" and a 50-year-old man has been arrested.

Counter Terrorism Police South East said it was investigating the non-fatal stabbing of a 19-year-old man on Saturday evening in Stanwell, southern England. It came following reports of a man "acting aggressively and shouting racist comments while carrying a baseball bat and a knife".
