Dramatic footage of police action during the London attack 1

A newest terror attack in London has been caught on camera. Dramatic footage shows armed police officers approaching the Streatham terrorist today and suddenly backing off after they spotted a fake suicide vest.

The attacker was named tonight as Sudesh Amman, 19. The attacker can be seen on a video lying face down on the pavement as undercover officers trained their guns on him.

A marked police SUV then appeared, speeding down the south London high street and braking suddenly in the middle of the road. Three officers leaped from the marked car, approaching Amman with their handguns drawn and appeared to examine him before rushing back.

‘Move, move, move,’ one of the officers shouts in the footage as his colleagues move away.

Amman, from Harrow, northwest London, had been released from prison just a few days ago after serving less than half of a three year and four-month sentence for 13 terror offenses.

His rampage ended when armed police shot Amman after he grabbed a knife from a shop and stabbed two people. He was under active police surveillance. During the rampage, he was seen wearing a fake suicide vest.  Video can be seen HERE.
