Hours before the incident occurred, London Police announced they would be increasing their presence by 600 officers, in response to the rising number of terror attacks in Europe.
The head of the Metropolitan Police – Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe, had made this statement on the increasing police presence: “Anyone who’s been following events in Europe over the past few weeks will understand why we want to show our determination to protect the public.”
Howe’s words seem frightingly prescient as the stabbing attack took place just hours later.

While officials suspect terrorism as the motive, that has not yet been confirmed.
