Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones were remembered at events in London and Cambridge.

The heroic worker charged at Khan and thrust the pike into his chest, bravely battling the terrorist head on, despite being slashed five times.

Lukasz was working at Fishmongers' Hall when Usman Khan launched his knife attack at a University of Cambridge conference on prisoner rehabilitation, killing two.

They are "saddened" and "shocked" by his actions.

The father of London Bridge terror attack victim Jack Merritt says his son would be "livid" if he knew how his death was being used as a political spear.

The variety of freed extremists engaged within the Dwelling Workplace's secretive "detoxing" technique has soared over the previous two years and questions had been being requested final night time over whether or not the general public are being protected.

"I feel, as everybody does, a huge amount of sympathy for the loss of Jack Merritt's family, and indeed for all the relatives of Jack and Saskia, who perished at London Bridge", he said. I am now coming to terms with the whole traumatic incident and would like the space to do this in privacy, with the support of my family.

Khan joined the Learning Together programme towards the end of his sentence and attended the event at Fishmonger's Hall to take part in group workshops, the court heard.

The victims' families have paid tribute to their loved ones. "I would like to send my best wishes to them and everyone effected by this sad and pointless attack", he added.

Bangladeshi-born Chowdhury, who got here to the United Kingdom in 2004 and was granted indefinite depart to stay, was described because the "linchpin" of the foiled al-Qaida-inspired plot. He was then shot dead by British police.

Mr Merritt was stabbed just before 2pm.

"He [Jack] would be seething at his death, and his life, being used to perpetuate an agenda of hate that he gave his everything fighting against", Merritt wrote in an opinion piece published by The Guardian.

Ms Jones' family said their daughter, from Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire, had a "great passion" for supporting victims of criminal justice.

She has been described as a "lovely, lovely woman" who was "fearless" by her former tutor.

These revelations have turned Friday's attack into an increasingly politicised election issue, ahead of the UK's general election on December 12.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson was accused of "trying to exploit" the attack "for political gain".

"The reason this killer was out on the streets was because of automatic early release which was brought in by a leftie government", he said.
