A tube passenger has been jailed for life after carrying out a horrific machete attack on a random commuter. Passengers were forced to flee through two carriages when Ricky Morgan launched an unprovoked attack on James Porritt on the Jubilee Line between Green Park and Bond Street.

Ricky, 35, was heard saying in reference to his victim: "This is not a terror attack, I only want him." Mr Porritt was on his way to meet his girlfriend's father and told jurors that the incident was like a "horror movie" and The Terminator.

The incident was caught by gruesome CCTV footage that continued for 20 minutes before Morgan was confronted by police, causing him to drop the machete.
