London Bridge attack inquest: Nurse asked terrorist ‘what’s wrong with you?’ before being stabbed in the neck

The London Bridge attack inquest continues. Today, Helen Kennett, a nurse who survived the attack, told her story.

Judges have now heard how many of the victims and a number of members of the public attempted to fight the terrorists, even when wounded, using chairs, skateboards and other items to defend themselves or others, reports Lizzie Dearden for the Independent.

Three terrorists from ISIS used a van to mow people down, then used 12-inch knives to stab their victims, killing 8 people, on and around London Bridge in June, 2017. Police shot all three attackers dead.

After the victims’ inquest, which is expected to take eight weeks, the terrorists’ deaths will be examined before a jury in a separate inquest.
