Former British ambassador to the U.S. Sir Christopher Meyer was brutally beaten in one of London’s major railway stations.
Sir Christopher, 74, was taking the London Underground home when he was attacked on Wednesday afternoon by two youths at Victoria Station, Westminster, who left him with injuries to his left eye, nose, and lip, reports The Times.
His wife, Baroness Meyer, said that her husband was taken to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, and had been beaten so badly he could not remember the attack.
The British capital is currently in the grips of a crime wave, having already seen more than 80 murders this year and a rises in knife crime (31 percent), gun crime (16 percent), robbery (33 percent), and rape (18 percent).
American expats told media that London, under leftist mayor Sadiq Khan, is beginning to resemble pre-Giuliani New York City after London overtook the American city for the number of monthly murders for the first time in over 200 years in April.
