Ingrid Loyau-Kennett, a cub scout leader, talked with the killers and kept her nerve as one of them told her: “We want to start a war in London tonight.”
Mrs Loyau-Kennett, 48, from Cornwall, was one of the first people on the scene after the two Islamists butchered a soldier in Woolwich, south-east London, on Wednesday. She was photographed by onlookers confronting one of the attackers, who was holding a bloodied knife.

Mrs Loyau-Kennett was a passenger on a number 53 bus that was travelling past the scene. She jumped off to check the soldier’s pulse.
“Being a cub leader I have my first aid,” she said. “So when I saw this guy on the floor I thought it was an accident. Then I saw the guy was dead and I could not feel any pulse.”
