This account of how some extraordinarily brave people tackled the London Bridge terrorist is utterly gripping and terrifying
Just in case you missed it, there was an extraordinary interview on BBC Breakfast today with the chief executive of Fishmongers’ Hall.
Tony Williamson gave a breathtaking insight into what happened during the London Bridge attack and the extraordinary bravery of his staff who confronted knife-wielding terrorist Usman Khan, who killed two people.

Gives you goose bumps listening to that. These guys need to be given the highest honours possible.

Listen to this from beginning to end. The most amazing tale of bravery and heroism, in all its detail. https://t.co/mYU9RFTpor

True heroism. "Hero" gets used alot. These people really are heroes though. Every single one of them. I hope their heroism is recognised by medals from the Queen

I think this might be the most British thing I've ever seen, a man matter of factly discussing the use of tusks as defensive weapons. Incredible what bravery some people are capable of. https://t.co/hz4Dr7cls2

In tv terms a 3 minute answer is usually unwelcome. This is utterly mesmerising not to mention humbling. https://t.co/lXXK4T8jSF

Amazing. And well done to whoever at the BBC was doing the interview, in keeping quiet and letting this story be told
