An NCPP spokesman said:
Our advice, wherever possible, is to follow the Run Hide Tell guidance until the police arrive on the scene. However, if someone is in immediate danger and their life is being threatened we would never criticise their actions if instinct takes over and they feel the need to fight back, or step in to try and assist an injured person.
Look after yourself
Events like the below are stressful for everybody involved. Most people get over them very well, but some people have longer term issues. It is important that you talk to somebody if you are worried or frightened by what happened
This might be a friend, or you could contact a group like the Samaritans.
