Inquests to open for eight people killed in London Bridge terror attack


Inquests into the deaths of the eight people who were killed in the London Bridge terror attack will begin today.

Eight people were murdered during the horrific attack when three terrorists mowed down pedestrians on London Bridge before going on a stabbing rampage in Borough Market on Saturday, June 3.

The Inquests will open at Southwark Coroner’s Court on Tuesday, with the opening expected to last a couple of days.

All of the victims have since been named by authorities, including Canadian Christine Archibald, 30, who died in her fiance’s arms after being struck by the speeding van.
