Medics battled to save London Bridge victim Jack Merritt for an hour after he was stabbed by terrorist Usman Khan, an inquest heard today. He died from 'multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and abdomen' and 'shock and haemorrhage', a separate inquest hearing was told.

On 29 November 2019, five people were stabbed , two fatally, in Central London . The attacker, Briton Usman Khan, had been released from prison in 2018 on licence after serving a sentence for terrorist offences.

At the Old Bailey on Wednesday, City of London senior coroner Alison Hewitt opened and adjourned inquests into the two victims' deaths.

Detective Superintendent Desmond McHugh told the hearing that Ms Jones was pronounced dead at Fishmongers' Hall at 2.25pm on Friday, while Mr Merritt died a short distance away from the hall at 3.14pm having been moved on a stretcher by police.

Pathologist Dr Fegan-Earl said each victim died from shock and haemorrhaging as a result of a stab wound to the chest.

Three other people were injured in the attack, two are said to be in a stable condition in hospital while the third has returned home.

Ms Hewitt will open the inquest into the death of Khan later today.

The hearings come just months after the conclusion of the Old Bailey inquests into the deaths of eight innocent people during the 2017 London Bridge terror attack.
