One man among the vulnerable has become a symbol of resilience in the face of London terror attacks as he walked away from the scene with the beer in his hand still intact.world Updated: Jun 04, 2017 23:13 IST
The appearance of a man calmly walking away from the scene of the London attack with a beer in hand has for some become a symbol of the British spirit.
Only two weeks after the bombing at Manchester Arena, another terror attack had the United Kingdom mourning. Three assailants stabbed passers-by at random after smashing into pedestrians in a van, killing seven people in a “terror attack” in a popular nightlife hub in London before being shot dead by armed police.
A Twitter user took a video of the news clip showing the man — pint in hand — and his companion walking as other people ran past them.

Reacting to hate with humor. Well done Brits. 👍Mourn and remember the victims, but don't change.— Kristof Strijkers (@strijkers) June 4, 2017
