London Bridge attack victims begin to be named
Hospitals across central London are treating victims of the London Bridge terror attack, which killed seven people and injured 48.
There are currently 36 people being treated in five hospitals, with 21 in a critical condition, NHS England has said.
The first person to be named as killed in the London Bridge attacks is 30-year-old Canadian Chrissy Archibald. She was originally from British Columbia and it was her first time being in the English capital.
Ms Archibald family have released a statement. “We grieve the loss of our beautiful, loving daughter and sister,” her family said.
The Canadian died in the arms of her fiancé, Tyler Ferguson, on London Bridge.
“She had room in her heart for everyone and believed strongly that every person was to be valued and respected,” the statement continued.
“She lived this belief, working in a shelter for the homeless, until she moved to Europe to be with her fiancé”.
They continued saying she would have had no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death.
“Please honour her by making your community a better place. Volunteer your time and labour or donate to a homeless shelter. Tell them Chrissy sent you”.
Mr Ferguson’s sister, Cassie, also wrote on Facebook concerning her brother. “Hearing his painful sobs on the phone while he’s alone trying to deal with this tears me apart”, she wrote.
The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he was “heartbroken” that a Canadian national had been among those killed.
French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has said that a Frenchman was also killed. Another seven French nationals were also injured. Four are in a critical condition. One French national is missing.
