The suspect, a French national, has convictions for theft, drugs trafficking and carrying illegal weapons, police said.

Marseille prosecutors source said the man had 'serious psychological problems', and was a 'manic depressive'.

A criminal enquiry has been launched, but 'the priority line of enquiry is currently the man's psychological state, and not terrorism,' said the source.

Following the attack at the Valentine bus stop, a witness wrote the number plate of the vehicle down, and gave it to the police.

This enabled a specialist police unit to intercept it as it entered the Old Port.


How does the media get the age, nationality, mental state of the "man" but no other details?

And the witch hunt is on!

Interesting how these bad driving incidents are only happening in the U.K.

I should have specified that it's not happening in America.

I think that cars, vans, lorries should be banned.
And knives. That is another pass time for some people. Stabbing random pedestrians.

We should also ban anything that can conceivably be used as a weapon.

Still haven't looked up "false equivalence" I see. Stay ignorant.

You spout the party line without thinking about what it makes you look like. Learn something and come back.
