The attacks centred on London Bridge and Borough Market. The Market was sealed off by police until yesterday (Wednesday, June 7), when the shop began trading again.
Owners Justin Kowbel and David Caldana said: “We would like to thank our customers and friends for their concern over the past several days. Our team members from the Borough Market shop are all accounted for and safe.
“Our thoughts are now with all of the victims of this attack, including our neighbours within Borough Market and their employees, friends and patrons.
Donations to the British Red Cross to help support victims and their families in the immediate aftermath of the attack are being accepted at the British Red Cross’ Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/redcross
