Book Of Condolence To Be Opened For Victims Of London Bridge Terror Attack
A vigil takes place this morning in Guildhall Yard

A book of condolence is to be opened for victims of Friday's attack on London Bridge.

A vigil takes place in Guildhall Yard at 11am today (Monday 2 December), to honour those who lost their lives, as well as the emergency service workers and members of the public who helped to protect Londoners.

Members of the public Jack Merritt, 25, and Saskia Jones, 23, were killed in the attack.

Following the vigil, a book of condolence will be opened in Guildhall Art Gallery, where anyone who wishes to can convey their thoughts and sympathies for those affected by the attack. Anyone wishing to lay flowers is encouraged to do so at Walbrook, outside Mansion House.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: "Like many, I will never forget the bravery of ordinary Londoners and the emergency services who risked their own lives to save others. They are the best of us. Our city — the greatest city in the world — will continue to stand united and resolute against terror."

London Bridge is now open to traffic again, although the northbound carriageway currently only has one lane in use, and the footpath on the western side of the bridge is closed, so pedestrians must use the opposite side. Follow TfL for further updates.
