A police officer was brutally attacked in an unprovoked stabbing outside Ilford station in East London at 21:45 on Friday evening. The policeman was rushed to hospital for treatment, but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. Metropolitan Police Federation chairman Ken Marsh has called for officers to be given more support following the unprovoked attack.

He has previously warned of a “breakdown in society” after two officers were attacked as they tried to arrest a suspect in Hackney.

Mr Marsh sent a heartfelt message to the injured policeman, saying: “He’s one of our own, it doesn’t matter if you’re British Transport Police (BTP) or Met or whatever.

“My heart and feelings go out to him and his family – we don’t want any of our colleagues not coming home.”

BTP Federation chairman Nigel Goodband said his fellow officer was lucky his colleagues were nearby to restrain the attacker.

He said: “I wouldn’t like to have imagined what could have happened if those colleagues weren’t in close proximity.”

Mr Goodband added: “I’m told it was totally unprovoked.

“It’s shocking – knife crime and the wider epidemic of attacking police officers is a real concern to us all.

“We’re witnessing this too often now, it seems certain elements of society see it as acceptable to attack police officers.
