Dramatic footage captures the moment armed police tasered an out-of-control knifeman who had been threatening to cut the throats of white people.
Terrified witnesses say the man was shouting 'I want to kill someone tonight,' as he made his way through Hackney, east London brandishing the 'nine inch' blade.
Heavily-armed officers rushed to the scene, and according to one witness, were there within four minutes of the initial call, and incapacitated the man shortly after.
