‘It’s you versus many,you’re going to lose’

A brave scout leader who may have prevented further violence has emerged as an unlikely hero in the apparent terror attack that left one man dead on London streets.

A brave scout leader who may have prevented further violence has emerged as an unlikely hero in the apparent terror attack that left one man dead on London streets.

Ingrid Loyau-Kennett got off a bus and tried to reason with the two attackers after she tried to help the man lying on the street but found he had no pulse and was already dead.

The 48-year-old mother kept talking to the two bloody attackers before police came,trying to keep them calm.

Loyau-Kennett,who lives in Cornwall in southwest England,told British media outlets Wednesday night and Thursday morning she tried to help the victim since she had been trained in first aid.

She said a man “with a a revolver in one hand and a cleaver in the other came over” and warned her to stay away from the body.

“I asked him why he had done what he had done,” The Guardian quoted her as saying. “He said he had killed the man because he (the victim) was a British soldier who killed Muslim women and children in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

He wanted “to start a war in London tonight”,to which she replied,“Right now it is only you versus many people,you are going to lose”.

Prime Minister David Cameron Thursday praised Loyau-Kennett’s performance in the tense situation and said she “spoke for all of us” .
