"A pregnant teenager was hurt when an axe fight broke out on a rush hour Tube train..."

That almost made us spill our coffee too.

Apparently the train wasn't moving at the time when a fight spilled over from the platform at Mile End according to The Scotsman. The hurt girl was cut by her boyfriend (accidentally we presume) and is not pressing charges after the kids were arrested on a bus outside.

Not quite The Taking of Pelham 123 then, and the 'axe' in question was only a meat cleaver and not the Jack Nicholson special that we were thinking of but we still expect the Evening Standard to call for a complete ban on axes, pregnant girlfriends, teenagers and tube trains.

It's all over - this week in Israel we had a handful of such teens criminology. And we blame it on the political situation.

"Was only a meat cleaver"

I can tell you've never been threatened with a meat cleaver!

About two years ago I was attacked with a knife while waiting on a platform. After an initial struggle the guy followed me onto the train and tried to repeatedly stab me through two carriages until I pulled the emergency cord. Life in the big city. In retrospect I think a cleaver would have been easier to ward off.

But my point was that a cleaver isn't an AXE and besides which the only person the idiot holding it managed to cut was his own girlfriend.
