Australian PM praises London Bridge emergency services | London

Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull has praised the emergency services who responded to the London Bridge terror attack, saying “thank you so much for everything you have done”.

Joined by Theresa May as part of his UK visit, the pair spoke to those who dealt with the aftermath and were affected by last month’s terrorist outrage, in which three knife-wielding attackers went on an eight-minute murderous attack.

The two premiers were met outside Southwark Cathedral by Metropolitan Police Chief Cressida Dick and Commander Dean Haydon before being introduced to a number of first responders.

Speaking to those from the Met, British Transport Police and London Ambulance Service, Mr Turnbull could be heard quizzing one female paramedic about her time in London.

Eight people, including two Australians, were killed and scores of others injured in the atrocity on Saturday June 3 which saw three knifemen mow down pedestrians on London Bridge with a van, before stabbing people in Borough Market with 12-inch knives.
