Reuters says a man was taken to hospital after repeatedly stabbing himself in the head on Wednesday at Heathrow T5 which triggered panic among the passengers.

The Guardian reported that airline employees disarmed the man before airport security, police and paramedics had arrived.
Heathrow spokesman said it was believed the man took the knife from a shop in a departure area of the terminal after security checks and that “it would not have been a really sharp object.”
Police said they were called to a shopping area at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 at around 17:45 local time.
The man was then taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
