‘Evil People Should Not Change Our Way Of Life’: Londoner’s Amazing Response To Attack

One of the primary aims of a terror attack is to instil fear in a population and make them scared to go about their daily life.

However, one man has perfectly articulated why he and other people in London won't change the way they live because of last night's attack.

Richard Angell was being interviewed by the BBC following the atrocities on London Bridge and Borough Market which has left seven people dead.

Richard said: "If me having a gin and tonic with my friends, flirting with handsome men, hanging out with brilliant women, is what offends these people so much, I'm going to do it more, not less.

"Because that's what makes London so great, that's what makes this the best city in the world. And we're going to go out and do it more."

Richard praised the emergency services who were on scene within minutes after the first call. He recalls seeing paramedics tending to a woman who was face down and making sure she was okay, despite the ongoing threat.

He also mentioned the police being 'the eyes and ears' for everyone and making sure people were safe. Richard wasn't the only one praising the emergency services for their incredible work last night.

Richard added: "Small-minded, cowardly, evil people should not change our way of life. They won't make me scared on the streets of London.

"I just think that the people of Manchester have inspired us in the last fortnight; and I hope the Londoners do their bit, and I'm confident that they will step up to the plate."

Richard's comments have been echoed by politicians including Jeremy Corbyn and London mayor Sadiq Khan.

The three suspected attackers were believed to be wearing fake suicide vests before they were shot by police.
