This man was walking behind us on the other side of London Bridge when the attack began. He ran through traffic and jumped the central partition to tackle the attacker with several others. We ran away but looks like he disarmed him. Amazing bravery @BBCNews #londonbridge pic.twitter.com/XdWRZyLwVN— George Robarts (@GeorgeRobarts) November 29, 2019

The police on London Bridge did the right thing in protecting the public.
And the bystander who held the attacker down deserves some sort of commendation, that bomb could've been real #LondonBridge pic.twitter.com/ICAtObNJKQ
