Tamara Lynch told the Guardian: I couldn’t see what he was using but he was really trying to ram it in. There was blood all the way down the side of his face and down his shirt.

‘My friend got really upset and started crying. There was a poor woman who was lying down on the floor on top of her children trying to protect them.'

A Heathrow spokesman said it was believed the man took the knife from a shop in a departure area of the terminal.

A police spokesperson added that ‘It appears that this is a case of self harm. We’re not looking for anyone else in connection to the incident,’

The man was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, they added.
