New Year’s Eve was celebrated in Amsterdam at Schiphol Airport with a bomb threat and “Allahu Akhbar”. At the Victoria Station in the northern English city of Personchester, it was celebrated with a knife and “Allahu Akhbar”. No one was hurt in Amsterdam, but at the Victoria Station three people were seriously wounded by the mischievous youth wielding the knife.

Below are excerpts from an article from The Daily Mirror about tonight’s events in Personchester. Unfortunately, the Mirror used the non-inclusive name for the city, which does not conform with EU guidelines and is therefore deprecated by Gates of Vienna:

Two members of the public, a man and a woman, and a British Transport Police officer have been taken to hospital from the scene of the stabbings at Manchester Victoria Station
At least three people have been stabbed by a man with a ‘long knife’ in frenzied attack at Victoria Station in Manchester.
British Transport Police [BTP] were called to the scene just before 9pm on New Year’s Eve as a man wielding a knife stabbed members of the public.
Two members of the public, a man and a woman, and a BTP officer were taken to hospital with stab injuries and are were taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary in a “very serious condition”.
Counter Terrorism Policing North West are leading the investigation but Greater Manchester Police said “there is no intelligence to suggest that there is any wider threat at this time”.
A video later emerged on Snapchat of a man shouting “Allahu Akbar” while being bundled into a police van.
