One of the general public heroes who tackled the London Bridge terrorist yesterday was armed with a whale tusk, while another fought him off with a fire extinguisher.
Several heroes bravely stepped in to drag terrorist Usman Khan to the ground on London Bridge England, working together to restrain the terrorist before he was shot dead by police.
Details are starting to come to light about those who chased and disarmed the 28-year-old, who was a convicted terrorist previously jailed over a plot to bomb the London Stock Exchange.
One of the most eye-catching defence weapons of the public response to the rampage, was the tusk from a whale which a hero grabbed from a restaurant wall nearby.
Witnesses said the long pointed tooth was seized from the wall of Fishmongers’ Hall by a man who ran after Khan and used it to fend him off while two others charged in.
