Commuters put on terror alert


Armed patrols will be increased on the transport network after a suspected Islamist fanatic went on the rampage in a London Underground station.

The extra security was announced last night after a man allegedly shouted "This is for Syria" as he attacked two men with a knife and terrorised passengers including children.

Police said that they were treating the attack, at Leytonstone Tube station in east London on Saturday night, as a terrorist incident. A 56-year-old man suffered serious stab wounds before police used a Taser to detain the suspect.
