Describing the moment the porter decided to take action, Mr Williamson said: "He's washing up glasses in the basement. He hears the screams. He's first aid trained so he makes the conscious decision to go upstairs. It's pretty obvious what's happening.

"The terrorist is brandishing two knives with victims all around screaming and people cornered."

Mr Williamson told how Lukasz confronted the attacker and tried to buy time for others to escape.

"At that point there's a vicious knife fight in which Lukasz takes five cuts all the way up his arm. He's hurt badly but doesn't flinch for a minute.

"He's then joined by two or three others, and now overwhelmed by numbers the assailant goes down the stairs."

Khan managed to reach the steps outside, but the porter was "right behind him".

Mr Williamson said Lukasz was "hurting badly" and had "lost the strength in his left arm".

The attacker was pursued by other people onto the bridge, where he was restrained.

Khan was shot dead by police after flashing what looked like a suicide vest, which later turned out to be fake.

The attacker's relatives have issued a statement through the police, saying they "totally condemn his actions" and expressed their condolences to the victims' families.
