Stabbing incident in Reading.

Not much detail but Twitter is ablaze.

Does anyone else wonder why lpm is adding to this thread?

It seems a bit 'no worse than flu' thing

Let's have a weighty discussion

That's horrible. My condolences.

Horribly similar-looking incident in Glasgow now, in a hotel currently housing assylum seekers. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland- ... t-53195939

6 hositalised with knife wounds including one police officer, three dead including the attacker, who was shot by police.
