A waiter working at a French bistro in Borough Market has been named as one of the eight people who were killed in the London Bridge terrorist attack on Saturday night.
Alexandre Pigeard, who was from Caen in Normandy, France, is believed to have been stabbed in the neck. He worked at Boro Bistro and had lived in London for more than two years.
Staff at the restaurant, which is located alongside Southwark Cathedral, had received training in how to cope with a terrorist attack just two days before the incident.
Vincent Le Berre, a barman at Boro Bistro, helped to move 40 diners to safety, but the speed of the attack prevented his from helping his friend and colleague.
Le Telegramme, a French news site, spoke to Le Berre's mother Marie-Jo, who described the attack in her son's words: "The bar was full. A terrorist arrived on the roof of the bar and jumped onto the parasol on the terrace, injuring one of my colleagues. He immediately began to attack. One client was killed.
"I found myself face to face with the terrorist, just two metres away from me. I saw the hate in his eyes.
"I managed to escape him but my friend, Alexandre, didn't have the chance to. He was stabbed in the neck with a knife."
The other victims from Saturday night who have been named so far include Chrissy Archibald, 30, a social worker from Canada; Kirsty Boden, 28, a nurse from Australia; James McMullan, 32, a web entrepreneur from London, Xavier Thomas, 45, from France; and Sara Selenak, 21, from Australia.
A total of 48 people were also injured when three men in a white van deliberately targeted pedestrians on London Bridge before going on a rampage with knives in and around the busy bars and restaurants in Borough Market.
