The Express URL for its article below is “http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/818779/paddington-station-terror-police-attacked-Allahu-Akbar.”
However, “Allahu akbar” doesn’t appear in the Express article. Also, the article says, “The Twitter user who posted the video of the man being detained wrote: ‘Just witnessed a Man trying to attack an officer at Paddington Station.'” But that’s not really what the Twitter user wrote. He actually wrote: “Just witnessed a Man trying to attack an officer at Paddington Station whilst shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and other foreign words #LondonAttack”:
Here is his video of the aftermath of the attack:

Why did the Express scrub “Allahu akbar” from its report? On whose orders? Was it an internal decision, or did someone outside the Express contact the paper and pressure it?
“Police swoop on Paddington station as ‘armed man tries to attack police officer,'” by Joey Millar, Express, June 19, 2017:
POLICE rushed to Paddington Station and arrested a man on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon this lunchtime.
A video taken at the scene shows officers restraining a man on the ground.
The topless man is shown being pinned by three officers in the middle of a busy road.
A crowd of people watch on as the man before the struggling man is led away by police.
A video taken earlier shows the man taunting an officer, grabbing a passer-by’s suitcase and running about the London Street exit.
The Twitter user who posted the video of the man being detained wrote: “Just witnessed a Man trying to attack an officer at Paddington Station.”…
“The incident is not being treated as terror related.”
