'Brutal knife fight' at London Sony HQ

Two people have been stabbed in central London amid reports of a man armed with a machete in the Sony Music headquarters.

Armed officers descended onto Derry Street just after 11am this morning.

Trish Ellis, a personal assistant at The Mail on Sunday newspaper who witnessed the incident, told PA: "Armed police were going in six-plus at a time, and more and more of them but they seemed to be keeping people in the building".

According to the Evening Standard, which its based by the scene, a witness reported seeing panicked people running from the incident while screaming.

There was "blood everywhere", he said.

'The guy with the leg injury had a towel wrapped around his leg, and the attacker was sitting down on the floor, still obviously very angry, with people trying to calm him down, and paper towels wrapped around his arm'.
