LONDON — Londoners responded in classic British fashion after a terror attack rocked their city on Saturday evening — offering cups of tea to those affected.
“Live around the corner, can offer shelter / cups of tea (these are the only good people in this whole scenario),” Kieran Glennon tweeted.
Hundreds of others offered up “cuppas,” as well as spare beds and rides, for those stranded after deadly terror attacks on London Bridge and in nearby Borough Market.
Lydia Hamilton, who said she lived near the site of the attack, posted on Twitter: “I live about 15 mins from London Bridge if anyone needs somewhere to stay, charger, tea, a comfy sofa, somewhere safe DM me. #LondonBridge”
A van rammed several pedestrians on London Bridge on Saturday evening, according to authorities. Not far away, a stabbing rampage targeted people in Borough Market, a pedestrian area where many people were out at restaurants and bars.
Seven people died and 48 others were wounded in the attack, according to police.
