Mums' Army Heroes: Bruce Lawrence
When he saw the man openly dealing drugs in broad daylight, he said: ‘Stop selling that rubbish.’
The man became aggressive and Mr Lawrence tackled him to the ground, and was knifed above his right ear.
After being treated at hospital Mr Lawrence, 32, who works with the disabled community in Kentish Town, said: ‘I want to send a message out to all these people who think they can sell drugs on the streets.
'We’re not putting up with it any longer. I hate all the drugs causing ruin and destruction in my neighbourhood. People here are starting to fight back.’
