She was stabbed by the hooded killer before an unnamed driver rushed to help – ploughing into the knifeman before screaming “what have I done”.

Mccaskie had been handed an anti-stalking order by Met cops.

One of her sons, who asked not to be named, told MailOnline officers from the London force “did nothing” to help Ms Chkaifi, who he claims faced years of stalking hell.

She secured a restraining order against Mccaskie after their divorce three years ago, and was so terrified of him she installed a panic alarm in her flat, her family said.

In a statement addressing the allegations, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “A Stalking Prevention Order had been obtained against the deceased man, as a matter of course there will be a review by the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards NPTD further.”

Ms Chkaifi’s son also told how her ex was due in court last week in relation to him breaking the restraining order, but had failed to show.

He said: “He was ordered to keep away from her but recently had started stalking her, which got worse over the past few weeks.

“The whole family was worried about her ex because he could be very violent.

“The police should have done something when he didnt turn up to court last week.”

Heartbroken family members paid tribute to the mum, who had a heart of gold, and hailed the driver, who ploughed into Mccaskie in an apparent attempt to thwart the attack, a “hero” for trying to step in and save her – after years of abuse.

Detectives quizzed the driver, a 26-year-old man, on suspicion of murder – but have since released him on bail.

A family spokesperson told The Sun: The man who killed my sister is a demon. The man who killed him is a hero. He deserves a medal from the queen.”

The spokesperson added: “He was supposed to be in court last week for breaching a stalking order but didnt show up.

My sister even has a panic alarm in her flat to protect herself from him. The police are aware of his past but this still happened.

He was a demon. He was a monster but the driver is a hero. He saw what was happening and tried to stop it. I want to say thank you again.

Her son added: Everyone who knew my mum knows she was a good woman. She didnt deserve this. Keep her in your prayers.

Police confirmed that the driver had been fully co-operating with the investigation and was bailed to a date in February.

It is understood that Wafah, aslo known as Yasmin, lived just a few minutes walk from the scene on Chippenham Road.

She had dropped her teenage children, 16 and 18, off at school when the incident happened at 9am yesterday.

Another man who laid flowers added: “I live local and I was just passing in my car when I saw it happening.

I ran back to my car jumped in and locked the doors. Next thing I know a car rammed into the guy with knife.

The woman had her jacket under the car but she wasnt hit by it. We had to lift the car up to get the guy out from under it.
