A Cub Scout leader who confronted an Islamic fanatic after he had executed a soldier in a Woolwich street said today: 'I wasn't scared. Rather me than a child.'
The moment fearless mother-of-two Ingrid Loyau-Kennett remonstrated with one of the killers, whose hands were blood-soaked and still carried knives, was filmed in the aftermath of the terror attack.
Today the suspect who gave a chilling rant to camera moments after the murder was named online as British Nigerian Michael Adebolajo - who is known by the Muslim name Mujahid.
48-year-old Ingrid Loyau-Kennett jumped off her bus when she saw the tragic soldier's body lying in the south-east London street, checked his pulse and then tried to talk to the men who hacked him to death.
After pleading with them to hand her the weapons, one told her: 'We want to start a war in London tonight'.
She replied: 'Right now it is only you versus many people, you are going to lose'.
David Cameron today paid tribute to Mrs Loyau-Kennett in a statement outside Number 10, and said: 'She spoke for all of us'.
