“Ozzy’s an absolute hero -- he deserves a medal"

Ozzy, understood to be a Pentecostal Christian, initially fled before doubling back.

He told a friend: “I realised I had to do something. If I hadn’t turned back there were so many people caught up in the panic there would have been more hurt.

“Me and another guy started launching bar stools, bottles and glasses at them to try and disrupt them.

“It was completely chaotic, like a war zone.

“They ran through the barrage and we deflected them and they literally ran straight into the cops, who shot them.” The madmen were cut down by 50 bullets. Ozzy’s courage was seen in a chaotic video as the terror gang were taken out. He can be heard telling the public they are safe.
