Man drinking pint while fleeing terror becomes symbol of London spirit

By Ashitha Nagesh

A photo of victims fleeing the horrific attack in London Bridge has become a surprising symbol of Londoners’ resilience.

This is because one of the people caught up in the attack, part of a crowd running away from the scene, is holding his pint.

The unnamed man managed to run down the road clutching his drink, without spilling even a drop.

Sharing the photo on Twitter, a parody account of Lynton Crosby calls @LyntonSpins said: ‘People flee a terrorist attack LIKE LONDONERS. #LoveLondon #LondonBridge’

Another said it was only natural, given how expensive drinks are in London.



Because not even terrorists can break Londoners’ spirit (and love of a good pint).

People in the city have woken up to the horrific news that terrorists ploughed a white van into pedestrians on London Bridge at 10.08pm last night.

After driving into the crowd, the attackers went to Borough Market and went from bar to bar, stabbing people with a 12-inch hunting knife.

At least seven people have died and 48 are seriously injured after the attack.

Wow! This is so amazing, and he was still drinking it… It’s a reflex action I guess
