On Sunday in London, CNN’s Becky Anderson and an accompanying camera crew were captured by another videographer appearing to stage an anti-ISIS protest by a small group equipped with printed signs.

A doorman known as Ozzy led a brave charge against the maniacs after seeing them repeatedly knifing a woman

A HERO bouncer saved countless lives by hurling bar stools, bottles and glasses at the ­London Bridge terrorists — driving them towards the police marksmen’s guns.

The dad of one, from Earl’s Court, West London, said: “I heard a serious amount of screaming and commotion coming from the street.

He says: “Be careful, I don’t know if he’s got a bomb. We managed to stop some terrorists.” …
