In the early hours of Tuesday October 21st officers from Hammersmith and Fulham police were approached by a member of the public who told them that he had just seen a man in the act of cutting his wrists.

Officers found the man, who then ran off along Trinity Road SW18 before running to the edge of the nearby bridge that crosses over Windmill Road where he continued to injure himself with a razor blade.
