A HERO civil servant arms himself with a narwhal tusk to tackle a killer terrorist.
Darryn Frost grabbed the makeshift weapon when Usman Khan went on a knife frenzy which spilled out on to London Bridge.
Mr Frost, 38, wielded the ornamental tusk while others used a decorative pike and a fire extinguisher to fight back, an inquest heard yesterday.
The Ministry of Justice worker finally pinned Khan, who had worn a padded jacket over a fake suicide vest, to the ground before police shot him dead.
Earlier Khan, 28, stabbed to death Cambridge graduates Jack Merritt, 25, and Saskia Jones, 23, at a prisoner rehabilitation event in Fishmongers’ Hall.
Three more people were wounded.
Producer Amy Coop, filming a documentary at the November 2019 event, heard a “guttural roar” like someone “going into war” as Khan pounced.
She said she saw Saskia ashen grey with glassy eyes after Khan slashed her neck.
He was free on licence after being jailed for plotting a strike on London’s Stock Exchange in 2012.
The inquest at the City of London Guildhall continues.
