Counter-terror police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was attacked with a knife at Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park on Sunday afternoon.
Footage on social media showed someone dressed in black approaching the 39-year-old woman, who was wearing a Charlie Hebdo t-shirt.
She then clutched her right hand close to her body and what appeared to be blood could be seen on her head as she was helped into a police van and taken to hospital.
The incident is not being treated as terror-related at this time, police have said, adding that the woman’s injuries were not life-threatening.
She was treated to a minor slash injury to her head.
No arrests have been made.
