HORROR AT MASS: NURSERY WAS LAST TARGET
Monday 29 November 1999
Horrett Campbell, 32, wounded four adults and three children during a teddy bears' picnic at St Luke's Nursery School, Wolverhampton, on 8 July 1996. Lisa Potts, a nursery nurse who was 19 at the time, was struck six times with the machete and later won the George Medal for her efforts to shield children from the paranoid schizophrenic.
All three children - Ahmed Pervaz, three, Francesca Quintyne, four, and Rhena Chopra, four - suffered deep head wounds and were scarred for life. Campbell, an unemployed welder, said the attack was a way of "getting even" with society after children teased him.
