“There was a guy on the floor covered in blood with a huge gash down his side.

“He was in a really bad way and people were circled round him shouting ‘stay with us’. His clothes were soaked in blood.
“Then I heard the gunshots. There was one first. Then a pause for a while and two or three more.
“The guy was just running around with a huge knife randomly stabbing people so police had to stop him.
“The police seemed to arrive pretty quickly but I was standing outside for at least 25 minutes before the first ambulance arrived. It was too slow.
“They went straight to the guy on the floor to help him then what looked like specialist police doctors or something came and helped too.”
