En kvinne har blitt halshugget med machete i en have nord i London. Det er ingenting som tyder på at det skal være noen terroristforbindelse. En 25 år gammel mann er arrestert i forbindelse med mordet.
Specialist firearms officers were deployed to an address in Edmonton, north London, just after 1pm where they found the woman’s body.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing a ‘madman with a machete’ in the area.
Scotland Yard has so far refused to comment on reports she had been decapitated and given few details of what happened.
DCI John Sandlin, who is leading this investigation, said: ‘This is was a highly visible attack in broad daylight on a residential street.
‘Whilst it is too early to speculate on what the motive behind this attack was I am confident, based on the information currently available to me, that it is not terrorist related.
Ifølge BBCs reporter Danny Shaw er det foreløpig usikkert om offeret og gjerningsmannen kjente hverandre.
